Too derned many laws in the country and not enough common sense…..
Here’s a small breath of fresh air. I just got back from a Selectboard meeting. A woman was there complaining about the town not having a noise ordinance. She says a guy in the neighborhood is always shooting in his backyard. The Selectboard’s reaction was we can’t be telling people they can’t shoot on their own property.
As an aside, the woman was grossly exaggerating. It’s in my neighborhood and while he shoots at least once a week, sometimes twice, it is only for short periods. Nobody else in the neighborhood has a problem with it. I pulled the Selectboard Chair aside after the meeting and told him that. The solution is to just ask the guy to not shoot on Sunday afternoons and she’ll be happy.
