The landlord is ultimately responsible for his land. That's the beauty of a lease - absent contractual obligations to the contrary once the lease ends the former lessee is a stranger in the eyes of the law. In any event it sounds like this particular gun club will soon cease to legally exist.

Stepping back to think aloud more generally...
This whole thread has been about why a gun club not owning its premises is bad, bad, bad. On the other hand, the ability to walk away in the event of something like the property being hit by hostile political actors, being declared a nuisance or receiving an EPA demand letter is a plus.
Never ask if you can carry at a non-posted place, but always ask why you cannot at one that is!
Just because they offer call ahead seating doesn't mean you call ahead for carry permission.

Yep that’s why the Dover Gun Club overlooking Lake Erie in Bay Village closed. Lead in the lake and land.

Club put a bid in on property in Congress. Just south of RT 83 on 71. It was excepted so it sounds like the ball is rolling on a relocation.

This makes me thankful to have my own range on land I own.

I hope you guys find a way to get your club back up and running.

It's more than just having a place to shoot, its hanging out with friends at our shooting events throughout the summer.
