The board passed a new non-incorporated firearms ordnance. From the letter I received it says one of the commissioners introduced the ordnance because of problems he was having with a neigbor, but it doesn't say which board member it was. It basically reads: Ordnance on Discharging Deadly weapons It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge or fire a rifle, pistol, revolver, cannon, or other deadly weapon within the unincorporated area of the county, as follows: a. 700 feet as set back from any residence, place of worship, school, or public gathering place; b. 150 feet as set back from a public road; and c. 150 feet as set back from any property line; This provision shall not apply to: a. any law enforcement officer while in the discharge of official duties; b. any person hunting upon such person's premises or the premises of another with the owners consent; c. any existing firearms facility demonstrates to the sheriff or his designee, that such facilities safely operate and where such facilities satisfy the 150 feet public road set back and the 150 feet property set back. At no time shall any discharge of weapons be permitted where a showing that public or personal safety is endangered. Out oof the 7 commissioners only one voted against this ordnance. They are and their votes: Trent T North affirmative Vicki J Anderson affermative William A Head affirmative Chairman Robert Barr affirmative (resigned for other causes. Jimmy K Godbee opposed Randy C Simpkins affirmative Herman K Ayers affirmative (acting chair person) There is currently a letter being circulated asking for this ordnance to be revoked by the board.
