Barnstable County Officials Threaten Legal Action Over Gun Range

Barnstable County officials are threatening legal action over the Massachusetts National Guard's proposal for a firearms training range on Joint Base Cape Cod.

The Barnstable County Commissioners voted Wednesday to send two letters to the National Guard, accusing the guard of failing to comply with legal and permitting requirements for the proposed gun range.

The letters were signed by attorneys with the Boston-based environmental firm McGregor & Legere.

Copies were sent to guard base commander Matthew Porter and Attorney General Maura Healey.

Guard officials have said the range is needed for weapons training.
