Pierce County, Washington! Contact Your Council Members!

Monday, November 17, 2003

NRA members who reside in Pierce County must contact their County Council Members on two issues.  First, an existing ordinance (Chapter 9.32.020) has been discovered on the books that makes it unlawful to possess or dispose of firearms. Although such a law is both unconstitutional and contrary to state statutes, the County Council needs to address this issue by repealing the existing ordinance. The second issue involves no-shooting ordinances. The County Council has been adopting restrictions on the discharge of firearms in an arbitrary manner, closing areas that could appropriately be left open for hunting and recreational shooting. A local group of NRA members is struggling in an effort to convince the Council to adopt a consistent process for the creation of reasonable "no-shooting zones" in populated areas of the County.  Please contact members of the County Council and urge them to REPEAL Chapter 9.32.020, the ban on firearm possession, and SUPPORT the adoption of an oversight process for the creation of "no-shooting zones." County Council members and their e-mails are as follows:
