Next week, and important pro-hunting reform bill, Senate Bill 737, may be considered in the House of Representatives. Please call your state Representative and urge them to vote in favor of Senate Bill 737!
SB 737, as amended, would eliminate the prohibition on semi-automatic rifles for hunting and allow for the Game Commission to regulate these sporting rifles for all game species in accordance with season and bag limits. The use of semi-automatic shotguns for hunting has been legal for decades in Pennsylvania. Ending the prohibition on semi-automatic rifle hunting would provide Pennsylvania hunters the same opportunities and options enjoyed by hunters in the majority of other states.
Once again, please call your state Representative and politely urge them to support SB 737!
