Heard about this on Fox and looked it up. The guy is suing the range for $200,000 for a $15 fee. The ladies got in free.

Think the guy's right or wrong?

That guy is an idiot!! Did you ever see any lady sue the Golf course(I think Augusta) for finally letting a lady member in after 80-90 years? It's $15 dollars go cry somewhere else.

The guy is a scum bag of the first degree, people who sue for such trivial things are pathetic. The range was doing nothing more than trying get more women involved in shooting. This guy is trying to hit the ghetto lottery, I hope the judge throws out the case and makes him pay court costs.

Wrong. In principle if it's a private range and the owners can do what they want. What the law says may be a different matter.

What the guy shiuld have done was shut his mouth, shot his gun and enjoyed the view. These frivolous, idiotic lawsuits are completely out of hand.

The guy is wrong. It's a one day promo by a business. It's made to bring more women to the range to get them interested enough to come back on paying days. Think he's just looking for a check.

Simply put I'm pretty sure the lawyer costs more than $15. First sign its a frivolous suit.

The point of such promotions is to encourage women to become more active in the shooting sports. This guy is a douche. If anyone knows him, please tell him so, from me.
