Horry County Councilman Harold Worley says locals are shooting firearms in heavily populated areas and it's a problem.
He has suggested Horry County should pass an ordinance that requires that anyone discharging a gun should be a minimum distance away from a home or business. Worley didn't get the support from his fellow council members he was looking for. Read the Myrtle Beach Herald post for details.
I live in the Carolina Forest area and we frequently have people shooting and hunting on the neighboring undeveloped properties. Last year, our neighborhood had a couple incidents with stray bullets hitting homes. It's frustrating and scary, but I'm not sure there is anything that can be done about it while it's on private property.
