Here is a copy of the proposed Town of Riverhead ordinance prohibiting firearms sellers from operating downtown.

There will be a public hearing on the bill at the Town Board meeting scheduled for June 21 at 6:10pm at Riverhead Town Hall.

Sounds like a winning idea for an idiot!


Firing ranges would be confined to the Commercial Residential Campus, Planned Industrial Park, Industrial C and Industrial B districts, which are mainly located off of Route 58, at the Enterprise Park in Calverton, and on West Main Street and Pulaski Street west of Sweezy Avenue. The proposed code would also ban the sale of guns at a firing range, making businesses that combine the retail and recreational use prohibited.

The code would also prohibit firearm businesses within 1,000-feet of any K-12 school, daycare center, preschool, child-care facility, college or university, public park or playground, place of worship, library, nursing home or existing firearm business.
It also prohibits the businesses 150-feet from any property with residential use.

Firearm businesses would not be allowed to display graphics, symbols or images depicting firearms, ammunition or firearm accessories at the business.

“The Town Board may impose additional restrictions on signage to mitigate impact on the immediate neighborhood,” the code reads.

Niosi was not on the radar until they were broken in to and had some firearms stolen. Since then it seems like Riverhead wants to extend the ban.
