Somebody is recklessly shooting off rifles in Carson City

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says the Carson City Sheriff’s Office has received a number of complaints from residents hearing gun shots coming from the Deer Run Road area, Sedge Road off of Deer Run Road, and the Goni Road area north of town.

In response, Sheriff Furlong has ordered patrols to move into these areas to attempt to put a stop to such dangerous activities. Residents should be aware that it is unlawful to discharge a gun, rifle, pistol or other firearm within 5,000 feet (nearly a mile) of any homes, or 1,000 feet if discharging a shotgun, air rifle or BB gun.

According to Carson City Municipal Code it is unlawful for any person to fire off or discharge:

  • Any gun, rifle, pistol or other firearm, with the exception of shotguns, air rifles and B-B guns, within five thousand feet (5,000′) of any dwelling, building or other place of public resort within Carson City;
  • Any shotgun, air rifle or B-B gun within one thousand feet (1,000′) of any dwelling, building or any other place of public resort within Carson City;
  • Any gun, pistol, rifle, shotgun, air rifle, B-B gun or other firearm in, on or across any public road or highway;
  • Any gun, rifle, pistol, shotgun, air rifle or other firearm, without exception, within five thousand feet (5,000′) of the Carson River in the area between Deer Run Road Bridge and the McTarnahan Bridge site;
  • Any gun, rifle, pistol or other firearm, with the exception of shotguns, air rifles and B-B guns, within five thousand feet (5,000′) of the Carson River in the area between the McTarnahan Bridge site and the Douglas County line; provided, however, that the other limitations of subsections (a) and (b) shall apply to discharge of firearms within this area.
  • It is unlawful for any person to discharge rifled slugs from a shotgun within five thousand feet (5,000′) of any dwelling, building or other place of public resort within Carson City.
  • This section does not apply to peace officers or to persons shooting in any regularly established and lawfully authorized and licensed rifle range, gun club or shooting gallery or to any person lawfully discharging a firearm in protection of life or property.

Anyone with any information regarding this recent activity is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 887-2677 (COPS).
