Collierville: Public Meeting to Discuss Proposed Shooting Range Will be Held Tonight

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BMA) will hold a public meeting tonight, February 22, to discuss the special conditions and standards for an indoor shooting range to open in Collierville.  The meeting will take place at 6:00 p.m. at the Town Hall Chambers.  Please attend this meeting to voice your opinion!  The location of the meeting is below:

Town Hall Chambers
February 22 at 6:00 p.m.
500 Poplar View Parkway
Collierville, TN 38017

Ordinance 2015-23 sets certain conditions for a potential indoor shooting range to open at a specific desired location in the General Commercial District.  The Planning Commission requires that this location is at least 500 feet from any day care centers, places of public assembly, places of worship, schools and public parks.

A medical practice across the street from the proposed indoor shooting range wants the BMA to add an amendment placing “health care facilities” on the list of prohibited places within 500 feet. If the ordinance passes with the amendment, the indoor shooting range will be unable to open at the desired location.

NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to attend this meeting and voice their opposition to this egregious amendment that only seeks to expand the list of prohibited locations for shooting ranges.  If you are unable to attend, please contact members of the BMA and urge them to oppose this amendment.  Contact information for member of the BMA is provided below:
