Is archery protected by the Second Amendment? Open Carry of bows and arrows? Are powerful, semi-automatic armor-piercing compound bows the equivalent of automatic weapons? Board of Supervisors in Tights! Arne Simonsen sends the alert below that the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors plans to restrict archery to government specified ranges; and does not exclude schools or scouting from its ban. See details
Please see attached information about County Supervisor’s action scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, July 13th) to restrict archery (and bow hunting) to only public/private ranges in CCC. As written, it does not allow for temporary ranges set up for school, scout, and other organized programs. The Contra Costa Sheriffs Office has no data to justify this prohibition. Please contact your Contra Costa County Supervisor if this would impact programs your organizations now provide.
