|Subject:||Modern Sporting Rifles for Coyote and Woodchuck Hunting|
|In the near future I intend to introduce legislation amending Title 34 (Game) to allow for the limited use of semi-automatic sporting rifles for hunting coyotes and woodchucks. My legislation would suspend the use of these firearms for varmint and predator hunting when those seasons overlap the regular seasons for deer, bear and turkey.
The fact is, most modern sporting rifles are chambered for common hunting cartridges and Pennsylvania is one of the few states that disallow these firearms for hunting of any kind.
Last session, Senators Scarnati, Alloway, Vulakovich and White were co-sponsors of the legislation.
If you have any questions regarding this resolution, please contact Nathan Akers in my office at 787-9684 or email@example.com.
Introduced as SB737
