North Carolina: Pro-Hunting Reform to be Heard in Senate Committee Tomorrow

Monday, April 8, 2013

Contact members of the Senate Committee on Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources in support of Senate Bill 201

Senate Bill 201, introduced by state Senator Shirley Randleman (R-20), which would allow for the use of lawfully-possessed suppressors while hunting, has been scheduled to be heard tomorrow, April 9, in the Senate Committee on Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources.

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.  For more information on hunting with suppressors, click here.

Please contact members of the Senate Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee TODAY and urge them to support S 201.
