Chautauqua Co. firearm discharge resolution

Chautauqua County Alert

Two members of the Chautauqua Co. legislature Robert Duff and Rudy Mueller have introduced a resolution calling upon the state legislature to increase from 500′ to 1000′ the no firearms discharge law for hunting and shooting within the county. This is in response to the opening up of big game rifle hunting within the county.

Here is a copy of the resolution:
