Chesapeake pulling a fast one with new shooting restrictions

It has been brought to VCDL s attention that Chesapeake is trying to fly some new shooting restrictions under the radar.

Well, that didn't work, but we don t have much time!

Chesapeake wants to greatly increase restrictions on where a person can lawfully shoot, requiring:

* exceptionally large tracks of land (50 acres or more)
* one owner or lessee
* land must be used primarily for agriculture or conservation
* landowner must get a permit from the police chief
* no grandfathering of current home ranges

This effectively DOUBLES OR TRIPLES THE NO SHOOT AREAS of Chesapeake!

The Chesapeake website is silent on the public meeting on this proposal, and they are not expecting many to attend (gee, I wonder why? If nobody knows about it...).


Chesapeake residents - we need a big turnout for this one!

The meeting is being held at 6 PM on Wednesday, July 20th at:

Chesapeake Sheriff s Administration Building Training Room
401 Albemarle Drive (corner of Holt Drive and Albemarle Drive) Chesapeake, VA

**You MUST SIGN UP TO ATTEND the meeting and need to do so ASAP**:

Call Karen Green with the Chesapeake Police Department at 757-382-6404 or email her at to sign up to attend (only 10 people are signed up, but I m betting that is about to change ;-) )

I will be running the VCDL membership meeting that night in Newport News, but Board of Directors member John Fenter will be at the Chesapeake meeting representing VCDL.
