Urgent Legislative Alert

The Senate Local Government Committee meets today at 2:00 PM.  On the Docket is S.B. 757,  Senator Roscoe Reynolds bill that would require that any local ordinance which prohibits the shooting of pneumatic guns in certain areas must have among its exceptions, an exception to allow the firearm to be discharged on private property with permission of the owner when discharge is conducted with reasonable care to prevent a projectile from crossing the bounds of the property.  This bill addresses a problem that is spreading throughout the Commonwealth where localities require there be large distances between dwellings or buildings without recognizing that many people can set up an air rifle range in a basement or a garage, or in many cases, a back yard in such a manner as to not cause the likelihood of harm to their neighbors.  Please email the committee members immediately and politely urge them to support this commonsense legislation.
