Virginia: Shooting Ranges Under Attack in Sussex County!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Please Contact the Sussex County Board of Supervisors Immediately!

In July, the Sussex County Planning Commission unanimously passed a proposal to require "pistol and sporting clays ranges" in A-1 zoning areas to apply for and receive a conditional use permit before opening.  A public hearing of the Sussex County Board of Supervisors (BOS) was held on August 20, 2009 and the BOS unanimously sent the proposed ordinance back to the planning commission to "clearly define the terms “sporting clays fields and pistol ranges in Sussex County.”  The Planning Commission has now resubmitted the proposal to the Sussex BOS and a public hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m. TOMORROW, Thursday, November 19.

Your attendance is needed to defeat this proposal.  It should be noted that the planning commission is the originator of this proposal, not the BOS.

This is becoming an all too familiar story in Virginia.  Recreational shooters, firearm enthusiasts and land-owners are being driven away from their shooting sports heritage by bureaucratic hurdles and red-tape.
If you are a gun owner living in Sussex County or shoot competitively at a club currently located in the county, it is important that you attend this public hearing and voice your opposition to this proposed ordinance.  

The hearing will be held in the Sussex County General District Courtroom located at 15080 Courthouse Road in Sussex.

If you are unable to attend, please contact the Board of Supervisors and respectfully urge them to oppose this ordinance.
