Covington VA --(Ammoland.com)- Fauquier County is considering a new noise ordinance that would have a ridiculously low threshold.
The ordinance would affect target shooting and hunting, because if someone could merely hear a shot in their house, they could file a noise complaint!
The Fairfax Wildlife Club is concerned for their Friday night Turkey Shoot fund raisers and for shooting on their range at any time.
If you live in Fauquier County, you can contact your Board of Supervisors member by phone or email to object to the ordinance not exempting gun shots caused by target shooters and hunters.
If you shoot or hunt in Fauquier, you should contact the Board of Supervisors members, too.
The Board of Supervisors is taking input during a 90-day comment period. Let’s be sure to give them plenty of input!
Here is a link to the contact page:
There will also be a chance for public comments at a future Board of Supervisors hearing on the ordinance. I will provide more information on this when I have it.
