News Flash Action Needed

Jackson County has an ordinance which prohibits shooting in the "urban tier" of the country. There is a map of this urban tier but it takes some effort to get. It does not exempt self-defense. The ordinance was slipped through last December without public notice. It does allow for ranges but does not define them and no county permit for ranges exists. This complicates some of the CCW instructors who have a home range. There was a hearing on a repeal sponsored by County Legislator Greg Grounds. The hearing was continued to 28 July, 2014 at 2:30 in the Jackson County Independence courthouse, in the basement. There were a great number of people there today. That always gets a politician's attention.

The Jackson County Sheriff's office says that they did not request this ordinance. It is sending a senior member of the sheriff's staff to the general membership meeting on 22 July, 2014 at 7 PM at Bass Pro Independence. Spread the word. Post the web site.
