New language added to the proposed new ordinance, covering using guns on Sunday, public to have input shortly. pic.twitter.com/V3AFoRxPJoThis appears to be a direct attack at the new Sunday Hunting law passed this year by the Virginia General Assembly and in doing so stepped over the line by effectively banning all target shooting on private property, and almost assuredly killing any chances for new shooting ranges in the county.

If you live in Sussex County, please plan on attending the meeting tomorrow night. If you can't attend, you can email the Chairman of the Board, Eric Fly, at email@example.com or call at 757-647-8190.
