Chesterfield Council Takes Up Squirrel Shooting Decision Tonight

CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOX) — The Chesterfield city council will review new gun restrictions Monday night.

It comes after neighbors complained a homeowner, Gene Schenberg was shooting squirrels with a pellet gun.

The proposed ordinance would ban all types of gunfire within 150 yards of a home in Chesterfield. However it would not change a person’s rights to respond to threats under Missouri’s Castle Doctrine law.

Schenberg, a former councilman says he will be shooting squirrels law or not.

Gun rights advocates are threatening to sue the city if the ordinance passes.

  • Chesterfield City Council meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. at Chesterfield City Hall, 690 Chesterfield Parkway W. Chesterfield Mo.
