Please Make Plans to Attend the Hearing!
Last week a public hearing was scheduled to be held in Wesley Chapel to discuss a proposed Firearms Ordinance. The Wesley Chapel town council has pushed the hearing back, and it will now be held on Monday, April 14 at 7:00pm. The meeting will be held at the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, at 120 S. Potter Rd. This proposed ordinance would severely restrict our Second Amendment and hunting rights by restricting the discharge of firearms within 450ft of any dwelling, building, or field containing livestock; effectively preventing the discharge of any firearm in most areas of Wesley Chapel. While the ordinance includes certain exemptions, it is unnecessary, as truly reckless behavior is already considered illegal or otherwise already adequately regulated under state law.
Please make an effort to attend this hearing, in case this ordinance is brought up for discussion, and voice your opposition to this unnecessary regulation. You can also contact Town Council members to voice your opposition. To find contact information for the Town Council members, click here.
