Air power, baby!!

HB1136 passed out of house game and fish today. The legislation would allow the PGC to regulate air rifles for hunting. I almost forgot about this bill. Have sent much correspondence in support of.

If you support air rifles for hunting, now is the time to let your representative hear your thoughts.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Air power, baby!!

Look to get the bill re-introduced next session.

not enough days left in this session to get it passes. More because it is a gun bill rather than a weapon use bill under the game code.

The house has the following session days left:


6, 7, 8, 14, 15



The senate has the following session days left;


6, 7, 8, 14, 15



Usually the house and the senate only meet once after the election. Sine Die - means they don't do business until the new members are sworn in.

The bill could be fast tracked, but it is unlikely as there are other bills that have a bigger payoff for the current legislators.

Session days more than anything else will not allow this bill to move much before the November elections. The November 12 session is to select new officers for the coming new session.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
