I'm sure the bombing range existed long before the houses were built so close by. Nobody who lives there should be astonished that something that was meant to happen in a rural area was going on before that rural area was developed. However, the residents most likely should have been informed of what was nearby (along with the Santa Rita jail). The county, also, should have considered moving the bomb range when Dublin decided that that land could be developed for housing. It is the classic case of residents complaining about something that was there even before their houses got built (like the folks near the Livermore Airport, or those in downtown Pleasanton who complain of the sound of railroad horns...)

Ah well...

People need to get over it! It's probably "more dangerous" living by Santa Rita Jail; people in Dublin should be more worried about that then worrying about what Myth Busters is doing!

You live next to a bomb range. Why haven't you protested that in the past?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
