    We were surprised to learn last week – as were members of the Shelbyville City Council, apparently – that the Shelbyville Police Department had decided to do the right thing: eliminate target practice from its shooting range off Kentucky Street.

    This range became an issue in October 2009 because of concerns raised by a former sergeant about officers’ firing live ammunition in the vicinity – a few hundred yards – of two elementary schools and aimed in the direction of one of th
