North Carolina: Pro-Hunting Bill Referred to Senate Judiciary 1 Committee

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Contact members of the Senate Judiciary 1 Committee in Support of 201

Senate Bill 201, introduced by state Senator Shirley Randleman (R-20), passed in the Senate Agriculture/Environment/Natural Resources Committee yesterday with a favorable recommendation.   S 201, which would allow for the use of lawfully-possessed suppressors while hunting, has now been referred to Senate Judiciary 1 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.  For more information on hunting with suppressors, click here.
