California: San Diego County Board of Supervisors to Consider Recreational Shooting Ban for BLM Land at Tomorrow Morning’s Board Meeting

California: San Diego County Board of Supervisors to Consider Recreational Shooting Ban for BLM Land at Tomorrow Morning’s Board Meeting

Tomorrow, October 9, at 9:00 a.m., the San Diego County Board of Supervisors will be considering an ordinance to ban recreational shooting on BLM land.  This is a result of the June 26, 2018 meeting where Supervisor Dianne Jacob quietly agendized (Item 17); a proposal to ban recreational shooting on BLM land around Donohoe Mountain.  Supervisor Jacob’s staff report stated that the area known as Donohoe Flats needed to be permanently closed due to a high risk of fire from recreational shooters in the area.  The item received little public input garnering only two local residents who live adjacent to the gun club.  Accordingly, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously and without any discussion to have staff draft an ordinance permanently banning recreational shooting in the area. 

The NRA and CRPA has reached out to the County of San Diego and the BLM to advise them of the legal pitfalls in implementing this type of ordinance and to remind them of ordinances that already permit temporary closure during high fire times. 

Nonetheless, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors has scheduled the item for the October 9, 2018 at 9:00 am.  

We need your help! 

Anti-gunners are working to chip away at your rights and severely limit the places where Second Amendment Rights can be exercised. This is a concerted effort that we are seeing across the state of California and the nation.  To that end, it is critical that all gun owners and Second Amendment supporters make their voices heard either during the Board of Supervisors meeting or by taking the time to write to the Board members to oppose this proposed ordinance!

 

Address for the meeting:

Board of Supervisors North Chamber

1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, CA

 

If you can attend, it is important that you be at the meeting and voice your support for maintaining accessibility to BLM lands.
