Sussex County Board of Supervisors Effectively Ban Shooting on Private Property on Sundays

On April 17th, the Sussex County Board of Supervisors passed a new noise ordinance aimed at banning shooting on private property on Sundays.  The Sussex-Surry Dispatch has confirmed that Board Chairman Eric Fly will hold a meeting with gun owners on April 30th. 
The meeting will be held at the Sussex County Court House and will begin at 7 PM.  The part of the new ordinance affecting gun owners is:
This 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.  Sussex has been a battleground for noise ordinances since 2009.  We finally put the issue to rest but now it appears opponents of Sunday hunting have reopened the issue.  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 or call at 757-647-8190.
