Reader thinks firearms ordinance response to 'select few'

Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting  by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.

Has anyone on the council really thought this through, or are they going on the emotions of a select few from the county who think that they have all the answers? If you feel that you must make restrictions, would it not make more sense to go to 300 feet instead of yards?
