Gun-banning leftists are sparing no effort in their relentless assault on gun rights.  Today, the fight is in Wake County, where Commissioners this coming Tuesday are considering significant changes to Wake County’s existing firearms discharge ordinance.

These changes are designed not to provide reasonable public safety as proponents would claim, but rather to create wide swaths of areas within the county where the lawful discharge of firearms for training or recreation will forever be prohibited.

Most significantly, property owners with less than 300 yards separation from cited structures (vs the current 100 yard standard) will no longer be able to lawfully discharge firearms at any time on their private property.

Wake County gun owners, you have already seen your share of gun rights repression in the form of “woke” Democrat Sheriff Gerald Baker who not only resisted issuing both Pistol Purchase and Concealed Handgun Permits for over a year until GRNC and GOA successfully sued him (and won!) to comply with state statutes on procedure but also took control of and summarily shut down a Wake County public training range in use for many years.

Now, your Wake County Commissioners are primed to conduct a Public Hearing to criminalize current lawful firearms discharges on one’s personal private property.

You can read a summary of the proposed changes here:  Proposed-changes-for-wake-county-backyard-target-practice

Simply put, these revisions are designed to terminate the rights of property owners to decide what is the best and proper use of their properties.

You Can Fight Back – And Win!

Months ago, a similar proposal was advanced by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners.  However, a sizeable turn out of Guilford County gun owners at their Public Hearing forced the commissioners to reconsider their plans to enact similar significant changes and table the effort indefinitely.  Wake County Commissioners are likely to move ahead with their plan unless WAKE COUNTY GUN OWNERS turn out in significant numbers Tuesday evening and force them to change their plans. 





First and foremost, you must plan to attend in person the Public Hearing scheduled for 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 6th in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room 300 South Salisbury Street, Raleigh.  Use this link to sign up to speak in advance:  Sign up to speak in-person Tue Sep 6th beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. You will be allowed 3 minutes to make your statement.

If you cannot attend in person you can submit your message opposing any changes to the ordinance by using the following link:  Submit online comments at this link  Note that this  link will only be active beginning Tuesday Sep 6th from 9am – 5pm.

“Commissioner, changes to the Wake County Code of Ordinances Chapter 130 Firearms are not necessary and I ask you to take no action to further impair the lawful use of firearms on one’s personal property in unincorporated Wake County.  Any such action to criminalize lawful behavior is an infringement not only on the right to keep, bear, and use arms but also on the property rights of owners to use their property as they see fit.  I will be following this matter through GRNC Alerts.”

 Dear Wake County Commissioners::

Changes to the Wake County Code of Ordinances Chapter 130 Firearms are not necessary and I ask you take no action to further impair the lawful use of firearms on one’s personal property in unincorporated Wake County.  Any such action to criminalize lawful behavior is an infringement not only on the right to keep, bear, and use arms but also on the property rights of owners to use their property as they see fit.  I will be following this matter through GRNC Alerts.
