The demands were to send studies to the Transportation and Land Use Committee that would expand the area of the county where shooting is prohibited. Currently shooting is banned in most of the eastern portions of the county. The proposed ban would significantly increase the area where shooting is not permitted, to include private property.
The study also would double the minimum distance required for shooting from 50 yards to 100 yards from primary and secondary roads. Target shooters will also be required to have a berm when shooting.
