Alaska: Gustavus City Council Pushing Anti-Hunting Ordinance

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Your Attendance Is Needed At Tomorrow’s Public Hearing!

The Gustavus City Council will be holding a public hearing tomorrow, Thursday, February 12 to consider a ban on the discharge of centerfire rifles within 300’ of any road.  The hearing will be held at the Gustavus City Hall on Gustavus Road near the Salmon River Bridge at 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 12.

This is ordinance is being pushed as a “safety” measure but it really it is nothing more than an anti-hunting effort.  Last July, the Council passed an illegal and unenforceable ordinance to ban the taking of big game within 300’ of a city-maintained road.  Now they are trying to amend that ordinance to ban the discharge of centerfire rifles.  This proposed ordinance discriminates against rifle hunters while allowing the discharge of other firearms.

Mayor Bill Unkel and Council members Joe Lassiter and Lou Cacioppo voted against the previous illegal ordinance and appear to be opposed to this current gun control scheme.

Vice-Mayor Paul Berry and Council members Wayne Howell, Sandi Marchbanks and John Nixon supported the previous illegal ordinance and are going to be the key votes on this centerfire rifle ban.

If you can not attend tomorrow night’s hearing to voice your opposition to this ordinance please contact the City Council members at council@gustavus-ak.gov or by calling (907) 697-2451 or by fax at (907) 697-2136.  Urge them to oppose this arbitrary and discriminatory measure. 

This ordinance will also impact hunters in surrounding communities who hunt in the Gustavus area, so please inform your family, friends and fellow hunters that they also need voice their opposition to this needless anti-hunting gun ban.
