This may result in the commission proposing zoning regulations and/or conditional use permits.

It is crucial that gun owners attend attend this meeting and voice your concerns. If the Planning Commission votes to create new gun range regulations, their recommendations will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors.

New gun regulations, no matter where they occur, set a precedence for us all.
