Virginia: Sussex County Supervisors Temporarily Repeal Anti-Hunting Noise Ordinance, Will Revisit Thursday

Monday, June 16, 2014

On May 15, the Sussex County Board of Supervisors met and heard concerns about the effect the recently passed “noise ordinance” would have on Sunday hunting and sportsmen in the county.  They were urged by gun owners and hunters to instead approve an emergency ordinance change that would eliminate the section dealing with shooting on Sundays.  The Board of Supervisors voted under an emergency provision to temporarily repeal the part of the ordinance aimed at target shooting on private property on Sundays, however, the Board must act within sixty days or the emergency ordinance expires and the repealed provision becomes effective again.
 
While the NRA is pleased that the most offensive language was repealed thanks to the emergency ordinance, your help is still needed to ensure that the Board of Supervisors acts this Thursday, June 19 to make its repeal official.
