Kansas: Shawnee County Seeking to Ban Discharge of Firearms!

Friday, August 17, 2007

Shawnee County Commissioner Shelly Buhler has introduced Home Rule Resolution HR-2007-4 to impose a ban on the discharge of firearms in the Clarhan Farms Subdivision.  If passed, this legislation would prohibit the discharge of firearms throughout the subdivision.  While an exemption is made for discharging a firearm for self-defense purposes, this measure would outlaw hunting on one’s property, even when it is safe to do so.

HR-2007-4 will set a dangerous anti-shooting and hunting precedent if it passes.  It will be the first stepping-stone to a countywide ban on the lawful discharge of firearms.

HR-2007-4 will be heard at the Board of County Commissioners meeting on Monday, August 20 at 9:00 am in Room B11 of the County Courthouse.  Please make plans to attend this meeting and make your voice heard to protect your Second Amendment rights.  If you are unable to attend please contact the County Commissioners by email.
