The Board of Supervisors in Albemarle County talked Wednesday about how its residents fire guns in their county.
They met to discuss whether, or not a gun ordinance should be in place.
It would make it illegal to discharge a gun within 200 yards of homes, buildings and public gatherings.
There are exceptions for self-defense, and some kinds of hunting.
After hours of discussion, supervisors didn't make a decision.
"They'll be having another work session on this to flush out some of those ideas, and see whether They do want to move ahead, and bring an ordnance into a public hearing for the community to respond to," said Albemarle County Spokeswoman Lee Catlin.
The topic was brought up following an incident of a man shooting a cat in the county earlier this year.
