Rockbridge County, Virginia Considering Severe Firearms Restrictions!

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

 

Please Contact the County Planning Commission Today!

 

Tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 7:00 p.m., the Rockbridge County Planning Commission is considering some very severe restrictions on shooting and hunting in the county. If you live in, shoot at a range located in, or hunt in Rockbridge County, please be sure to contact the Planning Commission members immediately and urge them to reject the proposed changes to the county's shooting and hunting ordinances!

 

Also, if you are able to, please plan on attending tonight's Planning Commission meeting as citizens will have the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed changes at the beginning of the meeting.

 

The meeting will be held in the main government building, 150 South Main Street, Lexington, VA.,  24450.  The phone number is (540) 463-4361.

 

The topics of discussion for tonight's meeting will include proposals that would:

 

*Restrict shooters to a limit of six rounds in a magazine on a shooting range;

*Prohibit fully-automatic firearms at a shooting range;

*Require a shooting range to be located on at least 250 acres of land;

*If you have guests shooting on your own private property, you may only have such a shoot 4 times a year, and may only have 5 other shooters on your land and you or a family member MUST be present;

*Restrict Sunday operation of shooting ranges to a total of four single day events, and these events must begin after 12:00 p.m. and cease one hour before sunset.

 

These ill-conceived proposals can only be seen as a blatant attempt to end

recreational shooting in Rockbridge County!

 

Please be sure to alert your family, friends and fellow sportsmen and urge them to attend tonight's meeting, or at the very least call and/or email the Planning Commission members, in opposition to these arbitrary and unnecessary attacks on law-abiding gun owners!
