Default Where is it legal to discharge a firearm?

Where is it legal to discharge a firearm?

Thanks

Go here and search "firearm." The first result should be "fire prevention code" and has the info you need.

If you scroll up a little bit on the page where the firearm law is, you will find that just about any knife you might want to carry is illegal to carry to any place you might want to go.

Default Shooting

Within any City limits you can not discharge firearms. You have to be in or under County jurisdiction, not sure about unincorporated areas.

Some subdivisions prohibit discharging firearms in their covenants. It's not a crime, but you could be fined.

Some very few counties have regulations on the discharge of firearms, most do not.

Most cities have some restriction.

WMA's have restrictions.

The original poster's location is listed as Henry County. We do have restrictions here. It is illegal to discharge a firearm withing 200 yards of another house or within 50 yards of a public road.
