Pennsylvania Rifle Hunting Bill Goes To Governor

posted on October 28, 2016

The Pennsylvania legislature earlier this week passed an important measure that would eliminate the prohibition on semi-automatic rifles for hunting, and allow the Pennsylvania Game Commission to regulate these sporting rifles for all game species in accordance with season and bag limits. 

The measure, HB 263, passed the House of Representatives by a 160-to-25 vote and now goes to Gov. Tom Wolf for his consideration. 

According to NRA-ILA, the use of semi-automatic shotguns for hunting has been legal for decades in the Keystone State; however, the use of semi-automatic rifles for hunting is prohibited in Pennsylvania as well as the neighboring state of Delaware.

Pennsylvania hunters and gun owners are encouraged to get in touch with Gov. Wolf and politely urge him to sign HB 263 into law. Contact him by clicking here.
