Sussex County Planning Commission to Consider Shooting Range Regulations

The Sussex County Planning Commission plans to hold a hearing at its meeting February 7th, to discuss regulation of shooting ranges in Sussex County.  This could result in the commission proposing zoning regulations and/or conditional use permits.  It is crucial that gun owners attend the meeting and voice your opposition to any restricitions being placed on ranges in the county.  If the Planning Commission votes to create new gun range regulations, their recommendations will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors.  It would be best to stop new regulations before they make it to the Board.  Please plan to attend the meeting whether you live in Sussex or not.  New gun regulations, no matter where they occur, set a precedence for us all.  This issue surfaced once before and gun owners successfully defeated the proposal.  Now the planning commission is at it again.

What: Planning Commission Public Hearing on 1) Shooting Ranges, generally, and 2) Pistol & Shotgun Ranges in Sussex County, Virginia. 

Where: Sussex County General District Courtroom, 15098 Courthouse Road, Sussex, VA 23884. 

When: February 7, 2011 at 6:00 PM.
