Facebook Threatening to Shut Down State Owned Shooting Range Page
Anti-gun Facebook is cracking down on a shooting range operated by IFW.
As anyone who enjoys firearms knows, Facebook is not kind to gun owners. Their anti-gun stance is evident, as the social media giant has threatened to shut down the page of a state owned shooting range. Summerhaven Shooting Range in Augusta received a notice from Facebook that the page does not meet the Social Network Policy, and maybe closed down in the near future. What prompted the warning from Facebook was not revealed.
In a Facebook announcement, the page said: "We want all of our Followers to understand if that happens it is out of our control but we feel it is necessary to have an open line of communications with our followers and shooters to provide them with information going forward." Range users are reminded that all of the range information is available online, and reservations can be made online as well.

Maine has two public shooting ranges that are state owned, and operated by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The ranges, the Fryeburg Shooting Range and Summerhaven, hosts classes throughout the year, designed to promote firearm and hunting safety. The Fryeburg Shooting Range is currently closed as it's being rebuilt, according to IFW's website. NRA-certified Range Safety Officers volunteer their time to monitor shooting activities at the ranges.
Summerhaven Shooting Range is located at 211 Sanford Road, in Augusta.
