Washington: “No Shooting” Ordinance to be Considered in Island County Tomorrow

Tuesday, November 20, 2012


Please contact County Commissioners TODAY!

Tomorrow, November 21, at 2:15 p.m., the Island County Board of Commissioners will hold a work session at which they will discuss an unnecessary “no shooting” ordinance. Commissioner Angie Homola, who lost her bid for re-election, is pushing this measure that would facilitate the imposition of shooting bans on private property in Island County.

This proposal appears to be in response to an IslandCounty resident who has invested in the creation of a safe and responsible shooting area on his property.  However, members of a nearby residential development are unhappy living in proximity to shooting activities and want this ordinance to be passed then enabling citizens to petition the county commission to establish “no shooting areas.”

Commissioner Kelly Emerson is an avid supporter of the Second Amendment and she is concerned that this ordinance is unnecessary and could lead to unwarranted restrictions on the shooting sports in Island County.  She asked the NRA to assist her on informing county residents about this potentially precedent-setting ordinance.

Please attend tomorrow’s work session and show your support for the Second Amendment and opposition to this ordinance.  While no public comment will be accepted, the anti-gun contingent will be represented so it is important for Second Amendment supporters to be present.  This work session will be held in the Annex Building, Commissioners’ Hearing Room #B102, 1 NE 6th Street in Coupeville.  If you are unable to attend in Coupeville, you may watch the proceedings at the Camano Annex offices on East Camano Drive in Camano Island.

Please e-mail the Island County Commissioners TODAY, and respectfully urge them to oppose this ordinance.  The county commissioners’ contact information is provided below.  It is important that you send each of them an e-mail objecting to this proposal as that will become a part of the official record and you may also contact them by telephone to express your opposition.

The NRA will keep you informed on any future developments. It is likely that there will be a public hearing on this issue in the next few weeks.
