N.C. Lawmakers Push To Protect Hunting, Fishing

posted on June 8, 2017

Republican state Senators Danny Britt, Andrew Brock and Norman Sanderson on Tuesday announced the introduction of Senate Bill 677 to the North Carolina legislature. The bill would essentially enshrine the right to fish and hunt in the state constitution.

The senators issued a statement about the bill that was reported in the Charlotte Observer. “This constitutional amendment will protect for future generations the hunting and fishing rights that have always been part of our heritage and way of life—and it will ensure North Carolina remains a sportsman’s paradise.”

At issue in the bill is where and when people can hunt. "This is what we need to have in place so that those other laws can come under this, that this is a basic right of the people, the citizens of the state of North Carolina," said Sen. Sanderson.

The National Rifle Association has come out in support of the bill. NRA has also recently launched its own campaign to protect hunting—visit NRAHunting.com to learn more.
