The Pierce County Council voted 6-0 yesterday to pass NRA-backed Ordinance #2004-61, which amends the existing no-shooting ordinance covering the area in and around the City of Roy. This pro-hunting amendment rolls back the current restrictions to create shotgun areas, which will allow for waterfowl hunting in the region. Congratulations to all NRA members who communicated with their County Council members and contributed to this victory. Special recognition goes out to NRA member and activist Allen Hodges who spearheaded the effort locally and was the major force leading to the success of this effort. Thanks also to Council Member Dick Muri who sponsored this ordinance on behalf of law-abiding firearm owners and sportsmen.
