Culpeper County To Consider Firearms Discharge Proposal

Friday, May 6, 2005

On Tuesday, May 10, at 8:30 a.m., the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors Rules Committee will consider several proposed changes to county regulations that could greatly impact hunting and sport shooting in Culpeper County.

Among some of the proposed changes that will be considered is a regulation that will prohibit hunting with a firearm and ammunition combination having a muzzle velocity greater than a .22- caliber rimfire cartridge. Since Virginia statute prohibits the hunting of deer with any firearm and ammunition combination less than .22, this proposed regulation would effectively outlaw deer hunting in Culpeper County!

Further, county officials are also considering a proposal that would prohibit the discharge of a firearm on parcels of land less than 20 acres, with certain exemptions for designated shooting ranges.

To ensure that Culpeper County’s longstanding hunting tradition is protected for future generations, all Culpeper County NRA Members and hunters are strongly encouraged to attend the Rules Committee meeting on Tuesday, May 10, at 8:30 a.m. The meeting will be held at the county administrative building, 302 N. Main Street, in Culpeper.
