Warning: rifle shots in town

Dear neighbors on Rainier and Talbott streets,
On Saturday, July 13 at 4:30 p.m., I witnessed the tenant at 525 Rainier shoot a rifle at my cat. He was on his back porch and shooting toward his back fence. There were no less than 5 small children within the trajectory of his aim.
The deputies who responded, informed me that because of the way the town code is written, discharging a pellet rifle within the city limits would be only a civil matter.
I hope that no small pet or child has to suffer an injury before a pellet rifle is considered a “firearm.” Until then, be advised that this person has possession of this weapon and could suffer no consequence if he chooses to use it again.
Marilyn Johnson
