Georgia: State Senate to Vote Tomorrow on Bill to Allow Hunting with Suppressors

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Contact your state Senator to support Senate Bill 93 TODAY!

Tomorrow, the Georgia Senate will consider and vote on Senate Bill 93.  SB 93, sponsored by state Senator Bill Heath (R-31), would allow hunters in Georgia to use lawfully-possessed suppressors on firearms while hunting.

Currently, more than half of the states across the country permit hunters to use suppressors while hunting.  There are numerous benefits associated with the use of suppressors, including increased accuracy due to reduced recoil and muzzle blast, protection from hearing damage and reduced noise pollution.  Noise complaints are being used more frequently as an excuse to close shooting ranges, informal shooting areas and hunting lands throughout the country.  Increased use of suppressors will help to eliminate many of these complaints and protect hunting and shooting areas well into the future.

Most recently, Arizona, Oklahoma, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas adopted new rules allowing for the use of suppressors while hunting.  It’s time that hunters in Georgia are able to enjoy the same opportunities available to sportsmen in more than half of the country.  For more information on firearms and suppressors, click here.

Please contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to support SB 93.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
