Mickey Schuch, President of the McHenry County Right To Carry Association sends the following message:
You may have already caught wind of the proposed firearm discharge ordinance in play with our county board.h
It will limit your ability to shoot on your own land.
The premise is stated to be safety, but to the best of my knowledge we don’t have any issues with negligent rounds being fired in McHenry County.
Most of us are extremely conscientious and cautious when shooting and for good reason. I personally find it offensive that this is the type of work coming from some county board members.
There are some folks in the area that are attempting to spin our disapproval with statements such as,
“These 2nd amendment people care more about guns than public safety”
“So you want to be able to shoot at neighborhoods?”
Clearly those type of statements are crafted to entrap and make us look foolish.
I’ll have none of it.
This ordinance does nothing, but add yet more paper to the volumes of laws already on the books.
Our 2nd Amendment ally on the board, Nick Provenzano, and I have discussed this matter.
We would like to see you all at the board meetings. At the bottom is the info for dates and times.
On another order of business we are adding some board members our leadership team.
We have goals to really get this organization pumped up. They will be introduced at our next meeting.
Also, our friend and past guest speaker, Matthew McNamara will be coming out to teach a “combatives” class for us.
This is going to be a dynamic and hands on event. More information will follow. If you have an interest in this, shoot us an email.
I hope to see you at the county board meetings.
Let’s make sure we politely let our board members understand our feeling on this type of legislation.
- May 15th Planning & Development Committee Meeting at 8:30am.
- Board Meetings May 6th at 9am and May 20th at 7pm.
All meetings allow public comment and all meetings are held at the County Administration Building 667 Ware Rd. (2nd Floor), Woodstock.
