I agree with the post above. The FOP has a gun shooting range within close proximity to several family neighborhoods. According to the St Augustine police, who admit to being called 100s of times about the noise problems, the FOP was grandfathered in as having a right to exist since it was here before the communities were built. However, it is disturbing and disappointing to know that the FOP has not been able to police itself by holding hours of operation that are respectful to others. Gunshots are regularly heard at all hours of the day and night, including the middle of the night and very early mornings, 7 days a week. Not just a couple of gunshots, but often rounds and rounds and rounds of rapid fire. The FOP needs to clean up its act and show some respect!
I live in tuscany village and i'm appaled that we have to hear all the uncalled for shooting that goes on. It's everyday all times of the day. Sunday there were machine guns going off at 11:38 pmMy dog was upset started barking .You are the FOP and are supposed to help people live a calm life yet your ORDER causing excessive noise and disruption.Your organization may have been grandfather in but can't you at least have set hours to shoot off your guns. There is a noise ordinance in st augustine and I will be checking into it to see what are rights as residents is...Can't call the police because you are part of the police. Isn't that nice......
