Update on Semi-Automatic Rifle Hunting Legislation

Friday, October 23, 2015

This week, the House Game and Fisheries Committee reported Senate Bill 737 out as amended by a vote of 25-2. Senate Bill 737 will now go to the House of Representatives for consideration.

Senate Bill 737, as amended, 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.

Would be good news for me. Often hunted in the Tioga area with my Rem 700 but would love to use my Model Four if I get to go again. Maine has allowed semi's but has a bucks only law as far as I know.
