LAKEWOOD RANCH - A proposed gun range in Lakewood Ranch may be open for business in a few weeks.

The Ancient Oak Gun Club, backed by Schroeder Manatee Ranch, is expected to open just south of State Road 64 on April 28th.

The site is less than a mile from the Center Montessori School outdoor lab and Bayside Community Church.

Both the church and school have argued the county should reject the plans to build the gun range due to the noise.
