House Bill 205, sponsored by state Representative Krayton Kerns (R-58), would legalize the use of suppressors for all hunting. While suppressors do not eliminate the sound of a firearm, they do reduce the muzzle report in a manner similar to the way that a muffler reduces exhaust noise from a vehicle. The benefits associated with suppressor use include increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.
House Bill 240, sponsored by state Representative Cary Smith (R-55), is known as the “Higher Education Rights Restoration Act.” Among other constitutional protections, this bill would limit the authority of the Board of Regents and University System to regulate firearms.
