Yesterday, Senate Bill 201, introduced by state Senator Shirley Randleman (R-20), which would allow for the use of lawfully-possessed suppressors while hunting, passed in the South Carolina Senate. This bill now goes to the House of Representatives where it will be assigned to a committee.
Currently, more than half of the states allow hunters to use suppressors while hunting. There are numerous benefits to hunting with suppressed firearms that include eliminating noise complaints, increasing the accuracy of hunters, and protecting against hearing loss. Recently, Arizona, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming adopted new rules allowing for the use of suppressors when hunting game. It’s time that hunters in North Carolina are able to enjoy the same opportunities available to sportsmen in more than half of the country.

While a hearing has not been scheduled, please contact your state Representative and urge her or him to support this pro-hunting, and pro-safety, reform.
