you are correct, unless in violation of the lease or state, or city ordinances the tenant has the same legal rights as an owner would. my point was, maybe his in laws need to be involved as they are the owner or tenant. and need to express the fact that he has permission to use their property for target practice. if there isn't any law or ordinance forbidding such activity, then the only way they could forbid such activity is if there is an imminent danger to other residents.

i agree with you, and when you decide to do it another day, then they will make another complaint. you need to get with a judge or constable or the sheriff's department and find out what the legalities are for that area. knowledge of the law is your best defence in these matters.

You could always say you're offended by their complaint, seems to work for the libtards!

Washtenaw, near Ann Arbor... and you wonder why?

You could try one of the legal beagles on migunowners.com for advice. my non lawyer belief is that disturbing the peace is a really tough thing to prove, and criminal nearly impossible. civilly may be a bit easier to prove, but the sheriff wouldn't have any involvement.

The best course is to do your own research of the local laws in your area (state, county, and city) if you find out that its not against the law, then you politely tell the lady officer next time she comes throwing herself around like something badass that she can kindly leave your property unless some law or ordinance is being broken.

Disturbing the peace is not as clear cut as the title entails. Most of these ordinances have a timeframe and certain exemptions, which is why you can mow your yard in the evening, but some dip **** can't blast his stereo at midnight.

99% of the time, a Disturbing the Peace ordinance is regulated by the city body of government. You could probably go into your local city hall and request a copy of the ordinance as its' written (might even be available online)

You could also start here and contact your local Village Council

I wonder if you went to talk to the neighbors if something could be resolved. Maybe they had a child napping at that time of day. Who knows. Maybe you two can come to some agreement as to when you can shoot. If they say they don't want you shooting at all..........well, then there's a problem
