Pennsylvania: Possible Pigeon Shooting Ban Amendment to House Bill 1750

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Discussions are underway in the Pennsylvania Senate to amend a ban on pigeon shooting into House Bill 1750 in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  These attempts could happen as early as tomorrow, and your immediate action is needed to ensure this amendment is defeated. 

This legislation would criminalize organized pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania by amending Title 18 ("Crimes and Offenses") of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes.

Pigeon shooting is a traditional shooting sport and has many participants throughout the Commonwealth and around the world.  Shoots have been held in Pennsylvania for more than a hundred years.  Their participants are law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts, hunters, and sportsmen.

Of course, opposition to pigeon shooting does not come from within the Commonwealth, but from the outside.  National animal “rights” extremist groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have organized and funded efforts in Pennsylvania and around the country to ban this longstanding traditional shooting sport. 

Using the contact information provided below, please call and e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE any attempt to ban this shooting sport in Pennsylvania.  Please also call your state Senator and urge him or her to oppose these efforts.
