Goochland County, Virginia Delays Action on Anti-Shooting Ordinance!

Wednesday, May 23, 2007

Please Contact the Board of Supervisors Today!

On Thursday, May 17, the Goochland County Board of Supervisors and the county Planning Commission held a rare combined meeting to consider an ordinance that would have dramatically revised county land use standards in an attempt to prohibit recreational shooting on private property. 

Thanks in large part to the numerous law-abiding gun owners who attended and spoke at the meeting, as well as those who contacted the Board of Supervisors, the combined body declined to take action on the proposed ordinance, and has sent the measure back for “further study.” 

While this is certainly a victory for Goochland’s law-abiding gun-owners, we must continue to work to ensure that this arbitrary and nebulous proposal is not once again brought before the Board of Supervisors. 

Please contact your Supervisor to thank him for sending the land use proposal back for further study. Also, politely remind him that lawful recreational shooting poses no threat in Goochland County and that the Board of Supervisors should continue to respect the rights of private property owners by opposing any ordinance that seeks to restrict lawful recreational shooting.
