County takes aim at proposed gun ordinance
PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board is considering a nuisance ordinance which would restrict the firing of guns within 300 yards of residences in unincorporated subdivisions.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Law Committee Chairman Bob McCook presented the proposal, which had been reviewed by both the law and zoning committees prior to Tuesday’s meeting.
Board member Mark Pierson of rural Princeton brought the issue before the board after he had been contacted by a constituent complaining that a neighbor had been shooting a gun in their subdivision. The constituent had also contacted the police, but the police apparently couldn’t do anything about the disturbance, Pierson said.
