DUP Vote to Spend £1/2 Million on Gun Club

DUP Vote to Spend £1/2m on Gun Club at Hamilton Road Community CentreDUP controlled North Down council tonight voting to spend £ 1/2 million on providing facilities for a gun club in the new Hamilton Road Community Centre. I opposed this waste of public money

RATEPAYERS SHOULD NOT PAY HALF A MILLION POUNDS TO PROVIDE A GUN CLUB IN COUNCIL PREMISES

We need gun clubs in our community centres like a hole in the head.
Independent Councillor Brian Wilson condemns tonight’s decision by North Down Council to include facilities for a Gun Club at Hamilton Road Community Centre. This will cost the ratepayers an additional half a million pounds.

Councillor Wilson comments:

The decision to give the go ahead with the gun club is bizarre and indefensible particularly in a time of austerity when many important services are being cut back.

This decision by the DUP dominated Council is:

– Unbelievable given their promise to keep down rates.
– Dangerous particularly as many children will use the centre.
– Unacceptable in that it was taken in committee and the ratepayers had no opportunity to debate the issue but are expected to pay the bill.
– No other council provides facilities for gun clubs
– I would appeal to members to reconsider its decision.

We need gun clubs in our community centres like a hole in the head.

    Its a disgrace to use ratepayers money to fund a private club.

    This is disgraceful

    I’m glad to see the gun club is getting more press. Young people need to learn to use and respect firearms.

      Young people need to learn firearms? Why would young people ever need to learn firearms? For what? In 30+ years I’ve never found a situation where I’ve said ‘Dam I wish I learned firearms’ in fact in 30+ years I’ve never even seen a firearm up close. Respect is for people not objects.
