No shooting range owner shall be liable in any action for nuisance, and no court shall enjoin the use or operation of the shooting range on the basis of noise or noise pollution, provided the owner continues to be in compliance with any noise control law, ordinance or bylaws in effect at the time of the construction of the range.1 This provision does not authorize a range owner to change the use and/or type of the range, or to expand the use and/or type of the range.2
