Tonight, April 1, 2008 at 7:00pm, a public hearing will he held in Wesley Chapel to discuss a proposed Firearms Ordinance. The meeting will be held at the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, at 120 S. Potter Rd. This proposed ordinance would severely restrict our Second Amendment and hunting rights by restricting the discharge of firearms within 450ft of any dwelling, building, or field containing livestock; effectively preventing the discharge of any firearm in most areas of Wesley Chapel. While the ordinance includes certain exemptions, it is unnecessary, as truly reckless behavior is already considered illegal or otherwise already adequately regulated under state law.
