AR semiautomatic rifle bill has passed the Pa Senate and now is still in the Pa House for approval... Lets hope they vote one way or another because soon they will have to start all over again..

To the best of my knowledge, Pennsylvania is the only state that doesn't allow semi auto rifles for hunting. Why are we always the last ones to the party? No Sunday hunting, no semi's, no night vision.... Not saying I want those things. Just saying many states are far more progressive than we are.

actually the only Sunday hunting we have here in NC is archery deer on private property...

we do have semi auto for all game, no magazine restrictions, except for migratory birds...

night hunting for predators, is limited to private property only, no game lands or parks etc... but we can use night vision, so PA isn't the only one with some screwed up laws...

all we can do is hope some day they'll come to their senses and open this crap up...

unfortunately our NCPHA, is one guy that doesn't want to make anything of it, him and his cronies act like it's a big deal, but anything they do is centered around them... can't get them to step out of their comfort zone...

Actually in Pa a rangefinder has been illegal to use.  They clarified the law this year finally.

Rangefinders illegal in PA. a lot of long range hunters must not know that or just do not care.

Including bow hunters.  They were classified as an electronic device because it produces a laser beam to measure distance.  Any device that has a laser is illegal in Pa. Issue was never pushed but now the wording was corrected to use them in Pa.

It has been on and off the table enough to wear the paint off the table. :-)
