APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Goochland County, Virginia to Discuss Anti-Gun Ordinance!

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

Please Attend and Make Your Voice Heard!

In a rare meeting of both the Goochland County Board of Supervisors and the county Planning Commission, the combined bodies will likely consider an ordinance that could dramatically revise county land use standards in an attempt to prohibit recreational and target shooting on private property.  The meeting will be held at 7:00 P.M. on Thursday, May 17 at the Goochland Administration Building, 1800 Sandy Hood Road, Goochland.


While anti-gun zealots have yet to provide any evidence that traditional recreational shooting poses a danger or is somehow unsuitable for the county, an effort is underway to drastically revise the county’s land use ordinance to create nebulous and arbitrary requirements that could very well threaten the future of recreational shooting in Goochland County.


Please make every effort to attend Thursday’s meeting and voice your opposition to the proposed and unnecessary changes to the county land use ordinance. Regardless of whether or not you can attend, please contact your Board of Supervisors member and urge him to oppose any action that will unnecessarily restrict lawful recreational shooting in Goochland County.
