E-M:/ Proposed Live Fire zones in ferry crossing route



From the Muskegon Chronicle:

Thirteen of the proposed firing ranges are on Lake Michigan, and four of those are in areas regularly traversed by charter fishing boats, sailboats and cross-lake car ferries that operate out of Muskegon and Ludington, according to Coast Guard records.




And the Freep editorial page:


The Coast Guard owes the citizens of the Great Lakes region a series of public meetings on the Guard's plan to designate 34 "safe zones" in the lakes for target practice with heavy machine guns and live ammunition.
