I was not paying attention due to the U.S. Election.
This one caught me off guard and left scratching my head. Law makers are trying to pass a bill to allow Semi-Automatic Rifles for hunting. This
legislation has been around since 2011.
Can I use my M1-Garand? My S&W Armolite aka AR-15? The AR is permitted for hunting in West Virginia. Possibly Ohio, but to be honest, I don't hunt. My
dad was a hunter, as well as all my relatives and some friends. This is South Western Pa after all. My dad took me to see 'Bambi' when i was 5. It's
the only time I've seen the movie and i still get the Feels😭
Don't go Rambo just yet. The Game Commission still has to consider what Calibers are appropriate for the size of the animal or game if you will.
"HARRISBURG, Pa. (KDKA/AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf has signed a bill into law that expands the list of firearms permitted for hunting in Pennsylvania to
include semi-automatic rifles and handguns.
The new law doesn’t make semi-automatic weapons legal for hunting in time for the upcoming firearm deer season, which begins Monday.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission has some decisions to make first.
“What species, what calibers, magazine restrictions, capacities stuff like that,” says Wildlife Conservation Officer Michael Yeck.~ per KDKA
Gov. Wolf is a Democrat. So I was not expecting him to expand on hunting privileges. So I have to reconsider his politics.
