Thursday, July 2, 2009 to Discuss Isle of Wight Gun Law

The Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors will take up the possible repeal of a "useless" gun law at tonight's board meeting. In August of 2008, the Board adopted an ordinance that allows only "authorized personnel" to carry concealed firearms in the county's recreational facilities. The only problem is, the law is unenforceable because ordinances controlling the use, sale, possession or transportation of firearms can only be enacted by the General Assembly. Local hunting laws are the only exception

If the board approved the recommendation to repeal the ordinance, a public hearing could be scheduled for as soon as July 16.

I'll be on Cam and Company at 9:20 tonight to talk about this and other Virginia gun related news. You can hear Cam and Company on as well as Sirius Satellite Radio Patriot 144.
