Sussex County Va Backs Down On Shooting Range Infringement For Now

Virginia – -( As we reported earlier Sussex County VA was to Voting On Restricting Shooting Ranges. About 25 gun owners showed up at the Sussex Board of Supervisors meeting last night.

Everyone who spoke, spoke in opposition to the proposed ordinance that would require special use permits for shooting ranges.

Many of the Board did not seem enthusiastic about the ordinance. In the end they rejected the wording defining what a pistol range was and sent the issue back to the planning commission.

We may have to go out there one more time in the future for the whole concept to be put to rest, but I think if we keep the pressure up, the proposed ordinance will be defeated.

The Sussex Planning Commission will very likely return a more "favorable" definition, and this subject will come before the Board of Supervisors again. Hopefully there will be another public hearing. If so, we need more than 25 people at that meeting to protest these changes. Three of the board members WILL vote for the restrictions, and a fourth may easily be swayed.

Indeed, KEEP THE PRESSURE UP! Especially to supervisors in the west/south districts of the county!
