Tonight, June 11, the Tabernacle Township Committee is holding a work session and possibly a final vote on a proposed ordinance that will regulate the use of firearms on private property in the township. This measure will prohibit the use or discharge of firearms within 450 feet of an occupied building on someone else’s property, even where it is safe to do so.
If enacted, gun owners would be required to seek written permission from newcomers to Tabernacle Township in order to target shoot on their own property!
This ordinance was tabled for further discussion at the May 29 meeting thanks to opposition voiced by NRA members and gun-rights advocates. This same action is necessary again to defeat this restriction of our Second Amendment rights at tonight meeting.
The public hearing will likely be the only opportunity for law-abiding gun owners to voice their opposition to this anti-gun ordinance.
Please make plans to attend the Committee meeting tonight, June 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tabernacle Town Hall. If you are unable to attend, please contact the Committee at (609) 268-1220 and urge them to oppose this proposal.
