Posted: Updated:

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has dedicated a new shooting range in Marion County.

The DNR, Consol Energy, and the National Rifle Association worked together to build the facility in the Dents Run Wildlife Management Area. Senator Joe Manchin was there.

Senator Manchin said the partnership will benefit residents in the area.

"So, it's a wildlife refuge like no other, and its so appreciated to have a corporate partner and corporate neighbor such as Consol willing to work to benefit all the population here," Senator Manchin said.

A handful of protestors were also on hand to protest Senator Manchin's involvement in the dedication ceremony.
