Re: E-M:/ Proposed Live Fire zones in ferry crossing route
Regarding this proposal for live firing ranges on the Great Lakes, does
anyone have the either the address or email address to post comments to?
Comments are due tomorrow. Also, where can the proposal be found? Are
depleted uranium rounds considered in this proposal?

From the Muskegon Chronicle:
Thirteen of the proposed firing ranges are

charter fishing boats, sailboats and cross-lake car ferries that operate
out of Muskegon and Ludington, according to Coast Guard records.

The Coast Guard owes the citizens of the Great Lakes region a series

zones" in the lakes for target practice with heavy machine guns and
