Colorado: Ouray County Commissioners Proposing Noise Ordinance That Will Ban Recreational Shooting!

Friday, June 15, 2007

The Ouray County Board of Commissioners is considering Ordinance 07-01 and 07-02 to restrict decibel (db) levels to 55 during the day and 50 during the night.  Keep in mind that a normal conversation is about 60 db.  

This ordinance would effectively ban anyone from target shooting on his or her own property in the county because they would violate the decibel levels emanating beyond property boundaries.  The only exception made for firearms in the ordinance is for cases of emergency.

The hearing for Ordinance 07-01 and 07-02 is set for Monday, June 25 at 2:00 pm.  It will be held at the Ouray County 4-H Event Center located at 22739 Hwy. 550 in Ridgway.  

Please make plans to attend this hearing and voice your opposition to this attack on our Second Amendment rights.  If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the County Board of Commissioners at (970) 325-7320 and respectfully urge them to defeat Ordinance 07-01 and 07-02.
