Byron limits firing guns within city | Houston & Peach | Macon.com

BYRON — City Council has passed an ordinance concerning the discharge of firearms within city limits.

Mayor Larry Collins said Tuesday the ordinance is the city’s first attempt at regulating the discharge of firearms. He said the city previously relied on statewide regulations.

The ordinance makes it illegal for any person to discharge a firearm unless it is in the defense of a person, habitation or other property and then only when such defense constitutes legal justification under state law.

The measure also allows discharge by an officer in his official capacity, people engaged in military duties, and people at a licensed indoor commercial or municipal shooting range.

It also allows the discharge of a firearm with permission of the mayor.
