The Proposed law should be reworded, more research be done.
No one should fire a gun from their property, unless --
1.. they have a 240 degree backstop of earth,at least 6 ft highand graded to a decline to the front of 30 degrees
2.. The persons should have proper instruction in firearms safety

3.. You need to know where your bullet impact zone will be if you have a deflected bullet

The 22 caliber long rifle can carry for over 1 mile at elevated arc.
therefore 500 ft would not make a diference.
A 308 caliber rifle can kill at 1000yards, I know I was in the Army,and made 1000 yard shots on a calm day. Therefore again 500 feet means nothing.
Build a 200yard well banked target range ,make it a membership only
club, and have a safety range master moniter members.
Thats my input

I'm sure the crackheads and criminals in general will obey the law.

I have a house full of weapons. Should I destroy them because people like you don't like them?

How did someone FIND a bullet or bullets in their yard? Who is that crazy to go through their yard with a metal detector! So bullets only go 500 feet or less, all of you that live elsewhere BUZZ OFF none of your business!! I live in Midway and own a farm( thats right cows chickens roosters pigs horses in the city limits) had them before the outsiders voted me into a city and plan on keeping them and my guns ( for normal farm and HUNTING rights) everyone complains about the govt taking away our rights, and the members of the council are trying to do just that.

I can remember sitting at the fire station while incorporation was being discussed. Every one of the people that stood up and suported it told us this. We are doing to this to keep taxes down, so that we can keep our small community idenity, so that winston wont take us in and make us live by all of the restrictions that that they have in place. Well, well, looky just a few short years later and already they are trying to make it illegal to hunt or shoot on your own property. Some people have hunted on their families land for generations. If this thing passes every person who stood in that fire department meeting room and told us how great it was going to be should be ashamed of themselves.

If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. The person who believes that we should do away with all guns accept for law enforcement is a moron. If someone breaks in your house while you are home, I guarantee the cops wont get there in time to protect you. I believe it is my responsibility to protect myself and my family. If you look at the facts you will learn that every state that allows concealed weapons, their crime rate drops. If you believe that only law enforcent should have guns, I pray for the safety and well being of your family. I never so much as leave a room in my house without my weapon and I know that my family will be safe because of that.
