City of Urbana holding zoning hearing affecting Gun Dealers and Gun Ranges. Please attend to support your local dealers and those exploring buillding a range in Champaign/Urbana.
The case will go in front of the Urbana Plan Commission on Thursday, July 19th at 7:30 PM at the Urbana City Council Chambers, 400 S Vine, Urbana IL 61801.
While reviewing the proposed zoning requirements, nothing appeared to be 'anti-gun', but our team of experts reviewed the documents and found them to be very vague with potential for abuse. There are suits from similar cases pending in the Federal 7th Circuit Court of Appeals currently.
The proposed zoning requirements state:
FFL's can not be within 500 feet of a school, church, temple, or mosque.
Must have a security plan approved by the local Chief of Police
Ranges must be built to Federal Department of Energy specifications. Ironic that range design criteria for training security at nuclear installations would be used in 'nuclear-free' Urbana.
