    I believe this bill is needed. It is unwise to let the executive branch use constitutional power assigned to the legislature without statute.

    Perhaps adding some clarifications, something like:

    The closure may include the restriction or prohibition of the use of firearms for target shooting in unincorporated areas of the state where the banning of non-traditional rounds, or exploding targets or devices, are not sufficient to protect against the extreme fire danger.

    The banning of target practice areas are only in very specific areas described or shown on a state website and by a signed notification by the state forester after consultation with county commissioners or officials and other local officials and sheriffs.

    The banning of fire arm target practice shall not ban the legal carrying of fire arms as protected under Art. I, 6.

    It's their constitutional right to star fires with their guns.
    How dare anyone try and stop them.

    Besides its public land, so they can burn it if they want.
