North Carolina's Lewisville Town Council Considering Anti-Gun Legislation at Tonight’s Meeting!

Thursday, November 9, 2006

 

Please Attend Tonight’s Meeting and Voice Your Opposition!

 

The Lewisville Town Council will discuss changing the town's discharge ordinance during its regular monthly meeting tonight (Thursday, November 9) at 7:30 P.M., at the G. Galloway Reynolds Community Center on Lucy Lane. 

 

It has been reported that one proposal would completely prohibit the discharge of firearms, while another prohibits discharging a firearm within 500 feet of any structure "designed to be occupied by human beings," unless written permission is obtained from the property owner.  The current ordinance restricts such discharges to within 300 feet, which mirrors a Forsyth County ordinance. 

 

Yet another proposal would prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from discharging a firearm without adult supervision, in spite of the fact that state law allows licensed 16- and 17-year-olds to hunt without adult supervision. 

 

Please take the time to attend tonight's Town Council Meeting to ensure the concerns of law-abiding gun owners, hunters, and sportsmen are well represented.  If you are unable to attend, please contact Council Members via e-mail by visiting http://www.lewisvillenc.net/council.php or by calling (336) 945-5558 and let them know you are against the firearm ordinances being discussed at tonight’s meeting.
