Is Delta County still safe?

Dear Editor:

I'm used to the sound of gunfire in my neighborhood as I live near the duck blinds of Sweitzer Lake and the shooting range at the vo-tech school. And I'm not normally an alarmist. However, I was startled this morning shortly after daybreak by the sound of automatic gunfire coming from the direction of the vo-tech pistol range. I'm familiar enough with guns to tell the difference between the report of a 9 mm cartridge and a 223 NATO cartridge. This sounded like a full auto M-16 which raised questions in my mind. Are our local SWAT officers now armed with Army-type machine guns? If the local criminals are that dangerous maybe we all need machine guns? I've always felt so safe in Delta County...up till now.
