Speak Up to Defend Your Rights
Stop the Private Property Shooting Ban!
The freedom to discharge a firearm on your own property in Aiken County, SC is under attack.
Aiken County Council members are planning to propose a county-wide ordinance that could effectively end the right to shoot on one’s own property. Such a proposal could include minimum acreage requirements, berms subject to inspection, and perhaps a prohibition on hunting.
State law already prohibits discharging firearms at structures. Any such county local ordinance will not accomplish its intended goal and will be impossible to enforce.
The United States is a nation founded upon private property rights as well as the right to keep and bear arms, and responsible gun owners do not need the government to regulate the freedoms they enjoy on their own property.
So please make plans to attend the County Council Meeting to oppose any restrictions on shooting on private property next Tuesday, February 15th at 7pm at the Council Chambers, 3rd Floor of Aiken County Government Center, 1930 University Parkway, Aiken, SC 29801.
Also, please be prepared to speak out against any restriction. It’s time gun owners speak up for their rights!
