The USMC purpose and need for the airspace is to provide a safe and effective area for live-fire training. The FAA allows for live-fire training at small arm gun ranges in within the United States without a restricted area. The USMC has numerous live fire ranges without the segregation that a restricted area provides and can complete their mission safely and effectively in Guam without one.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    The FAA published a NPRM in the Federal Register for Docket No. 
FAA-2019-0094. (84 FR 7840; March 5, 2019). The NPRM proposed to 
establish restricted area R-7202 on the island of Guam, GU.
    Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. Six comments 
were received.

Discussion of Comments

    Three comments were in support of the proposal. One commenter 
suggested relocating the range to a location where bird and wildlife 
have been eradicated due to military expansion, as the proposed 
location would disrupt bird and wildlife. One commenter questioned the 
altitude of the proposal in relation to the weapons being proposed. One 
commenter questioned the United States Marine Corps (USMC) move from 
Okinawa due to China's tyrannical influences on Japan.

FAA's Conclusions

    The FAA does not issue restricted areas for small arms gun ranges 
within the United States. Issuing a restricted area for small arm gun 
ranges in Guam would set a precedent nationwide at military and 
countless civilian gun clubs. This proliferation of restricted areas 
would result in inefficient management of the National Airspace System 
(NAS).
    The USMC purpose and need for the airspace is to provide a safe and 
effective area for live-fire training. The FAA allows for live-fire 
training at small arm gun ranges in within the United States without a 
restricted area. The USMC has numerous live fire ranges without the 
segregation that a restricted area provides and can complete their 
mission safely and effectively in Guam without one.
