North Carolina Members! Range Protection Alert!

Thursday, March 31, 2005

The Jackson County Board of Commissioners will be meeting on Monday, April 4, to vote on a proposed moratorium on shooting ranges in Jackson County. If approved, this could put an end, at least temporarily, to the development of new shooting ranges, including preventing existing ranges from relocating within the county. Shooting ranges have a long tradition of service to a wide variety of citizen groups in local communities, providing important recreational and training opportunities. It is imperative that shooting ranges in Jackson County be allowed to develop or move, when necessary, so that they may provide a place where hunters and competitive shooters can safely and responsibly hone their skills and test their equipment, and gun owners will have a place to practice the safe and proper use and handling of firearms.

The Jackson County Board of Commissioners meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 4, at 6:00 PM, and will be held at 401 Grindstaff Cove Road in Sylva, N.C. Please make plans to attend and express your opposition to the proposed moratorium on shooting ranges in Jackson County. County residents can sign up to speak on issues prior to the meeting. Be sure to bring your family, friends, and fellow gun owners.

If you cannot attend Monday`s meeting, please be sure to contact members of the Board of Commissioners to express your opposition to the proposed moratorium. There are several methods for contacting the Board. You can send a message via e-mail to Kenneth Westmoreland, the County Manager, at Jacksoncomgr@jacksonnc.org, and he will share your message with all members of the Board. You can call Evelyn Baker, the Clerk of the Board of Commissioners, at (828) 631-2213, and she will share your comments with all the members of the Board. You can also contact members of the Board of Commissioners directly by telephone.
