Pennsylvania: Contact your State Legislators in Support of Semi-Automatic Rifle Hunting Legislation!

Today, the Pennsylvania Senate amended House Bill 263 to include language that 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.

Tomorrow is the last day of session, so HB 263 will go before both chambers for approval.

Please call your state Representative and state Senator TODAY and politely urge them to support HB 263, as amended.  Also, please click the “Take Action” button below to contact them with your support!
