On Thursday, February 12, the Gustavus City Council defeated a proposed ordinance to ban the discharge of centerfire rifles within 300 feet of any road.
This ordinance was being pushed as a “safety” measure but it really it was nothing more than an anti-hunting effort. As you will recall, the Council passed an illegal and unenforceable ordinance last July outlawing the taking of big game within 300 feet of a city-maintained road.
Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call in opposition to this outrageous attack on our Second Amendment freedoms. Without you, this victory would not have been possible.
