On Wednesday, January 21, the Howard County Council heard public comment on an anti-hunting ordinance, CB1-2009.
The County Council has scheduled Monday, February 2 for a vote on the measure. Four of the five Howard County Council members sponsoring this bill are portraying it as a “safe hunting” bill. The current safety zone distance requirements would be doubled under the proposal, which, in turn, will shrink the land that law-abiding citizens can use to hunt. Animal “rights” and anti-hunting extremists are making their voices heard so it is imperative that Howard County’s sportsmen speak loudly.
Please contact the members of the County Council and encourage them to OPPOSE this anti-hunting measure. The general phone number for the County Council is (410) 313-2001 and the fax number is (410) 313-3297. More contact information can be found here.
