Missouri Cities Take Aim at Your Second Amendment Rights and Hunting Heritage!

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

On August 2, in a speedy and quiet manner, the City of Maryland Heights enacted a far-reaching, ominous ordinance that bans all discharge of firearms within the city limits.  In taking this draconian swipe at law-abiding gun owners, the City Council has effectively stripped gun owners of their ability to sport shoot, hunt and defend themselves and their loved ones from a violent attack! That’s right, under the new ordinance, even the discharge of a firearm in self-defense is banned in Maryland Heights!

 

While the direct impact of this measure will first be felt by law-abiding hunters, sport shooters and gun owners living in Maryland Heights, the practical effect is that all Missourians, non-resident hunters and sport shooters will be prohibited from hunting and shooting within the city limits, even where it is safe to do so.  Moreover, every resident, as well as those law-abiding gun owners passing through Maryland Heights, would be denied their right to defend themselves and their loved ones.

 

Regardless of whether or not you reside in Maryland Heights, using the information below, please contact the Mayor and City Council Members immediately and urge them to reconsider this misguided and unconstitutional measure. Encourage them to stand up for your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage by repealing the citywide ban on the discharge of firearms. Be sure to pass this information along to your family, friends and fellow Second Amendment supporters and urge them to do the same!

Additionally, on Wednesday, August 15, the City of Hazelwood City Council is expected to consider a proposal that mirrors the draconian measures enacted by Maryland Heights.  As with the action taken in Maryland Heights, the negative implications of the Hazelwood proposal would also not just be felt by Hazelwood residents, but by all law-abiding hunters, sportsmen and gun owners.

 

However, if you act now, we can stop the City Council before it is too late.  Again, regardless of whether or not you live in Hazelwood, using the information below, please contact the following city officials and urge them to protect your right to self-defense and your hunting heritage by rejecting any proposal that bans the discharge of firearms!
