Virginia: Sussex County Again Trying to Force Through an Ordinance to Restrict Shooting Tomorrow, August 18!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

This past March, the Sussex County Board of Supervisors and Sussex County Planning Commission held a joint public hearing on an unwarranted and overly restrictive proposed ordinance that would limit shooting in Sussex County with the intent of driving organized shooting out of the county.

With no public comment allowed, the Sussex County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote on this proposed ordinance tomorrow, August 18 at 7:30 pm in the General District Courtroom, Sussex Judicial Center, 15098 Courthouse Road.

Over the years, the county Board of Supervisors has consistently rejected similar proposals from the Planning Commission due to their negative impact on sportsmen, shooters and business in the county.

Please plan to attend tomorrow’s meeting and call your county Supervisor to respectfully urge him to vote against this ordinance.
