On Tuesday, August 9, 2005, a public hearing will be held on a proposed Nelson County anti-gun noise ordinance that was tentatively passed by the Board of Supervisors at an "emergency" meeting held in late June. As it is currently proposed, this noise ordinance would negatively impact law-abiding hunters and sport shooters in Nelson County. Please plan on attending the public hearing next Tuesday, August 9, and voice your opposition to the Board of Supervisors' direct attack on your fundamental rights and this misguided noise ordinance. The meeting will be held at the Nelson County Courthouse in Lovingston, and the public comment period will begin at 7:30 p.m. Please be sure to alert your fellow hunters, sportsmen, and Second Amendment supporters!
