Don't want sharpshooting in YOUR yard? Call the Game Commission

I understand that we are to call the PA Game Commission and let them know if we do not want sharpshooting on our properties. All safety zones are waived unless property owners call and say they do not want sharpshooting on their property.

This is confusing. It sounds like if you call the Game Commission, you can get the safety zones re-instated, and that's not the case. If you want to call and complain about them giving the Muni a permit to shoot guns without safety zones, do that. But it won't change the decision they already made.

OK, thanks for the clarification, Barb.

PGC employees are dumb as bricks. It is difficult for them to understand anyone who is anti-kill.

Off topic (not completely). I apologize. Question: Should we be putting more pressure on the MTLSD about sharpshooting. We did about archery. Tim is sitting pretty in Lalas's lap. BUT... Is he responsible or does he report to anyone or any entity outside of Mt. Lebanon? If anyone is aware of any potential avenues to hammer the school district, please advise. This may be a good topic in itself, Elaine. Just an idea. Thanks.

10:59 am. They are waving safety zones but they aren't waving the Gun Free School Zones act, right? Because the Gun Free School Zones act is federal and the state doesn't have the right to waive it.

You are correct, 12:46 PM. Gun Free School Zones trumps everything.

They do not have the power to waive the FGFSZA. So, there won't be guns very close to the schools. Unfortunately, the kids will be riddled by bullets by the time they get to school. It appears that the MTLSD has waived and continues to waive the safe walking routes for students.
