Air Rifle Bill Passes Senate

Senator Roscoe Reynolds' SB757 passed the State Senate today on a vote of 27-12.  SB757 would require that any local ordinance which prohibits the shooting of pneumatic guns in certain areas shall 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.  VSSA strongly supports this much needed legislation to keep localities from unnecessarily prohibiting the use of air rifles on private property.  The bill now moves to the House.
