    Maybe they don't want the locals shooting in the air on the 4th? Never been there but looking on google maps it looks like a decent small town with larger houses right next to each other. Looked around on streetview and I didn't see any place I would feel comfortable shooting in town.

    Looks like there are 5-6 shooting ranges within a few miles but none are in the township.

    From Lehigh Valley News:
    Pen Argyl Borough Council voted Tuesday to increase the fine from $50 to $1,000 for discharging a weapon.

    The vote was 7-1 with Councilman Steven Goffredo voting against it.

    Borough Manager Robin Zmoda said a resident had given a “neighboring law enforcement agency” permission on his property to conduct drills that included guns.

    The previous law only prohibited someone from discharging a weapon. The new ordinance allows the borough also to fine those who grant permission for weapons to be discharged on their property.

    Chapter 53 of the borough code deals with disorderly conduct, which includes discharging weapons. The new ordinance amends the chapter.

    The code list fines for disorderly conduct as $50 for the first offense, $150 for a second offense and $300 for a third offense. The fines for disorderly conduct other than discharging a weapon remain the same.

    The amended code now includes a $1,000 fine for people who discharge a weapon or “give permission or authorization to another person to use discharge or propel” a projectile on their property.

    The borough looked at its the old fine of $50 for the discharging of weapons offense and decided it didn’t have enough teeth, Zmoda said.

    “We felt it needed to be a little bit more stringent,” Zmoda said.

    Weapons are defined in the borough code as firearms, including rifles, shotguns, pistols, or any weapon that can fire a projectile by use of an explosive charge. Weapons also include air rifles, air pistols, spring-loaded guns, bows, crossbows, and slingshots.

    The prohibition of discharging weapons does not include those legally hunting and does not include lawfully approved firing ranges or archery ranges.

    They didn't know any better because they are all from New York and New Jersey and came to PA to turn it into the same shithole they came from.
