Franklin County to consider repeal of gun ordinance on October 16

The Franklin County Board of Supervisors is holding a public hearing on REPEALING a preempted ordinance that purports to ban guns at any music or entertainment festival in the county. That ordinance was put in place back in 1981.

The meeting is at 6 PM on October 16
Franklin County Government Complex Board Room
1255 Franklin Street, Ste. 104
Rocky Mount, VA

I expect this to go smoothly, but if anyone can go and report back to me on what transpired, that would be great.

DaveH, back here,

This ordinance is invalidated by http://tinyurl.com/2nbdj5

However, VCDL works hard at getting such ordinances off the books, as they confuse the LEOs as well as the general public, have a chilling effect on the RKBA, and can create significant inconvenience for those legally carrying -- as in getting escorted out of an event, arrested, having to hire an attorney-at-law, etc.

If you are local, hope to see you there.
