PCN Call In; Hot Topic issues!

Just got done listening to Matt Hough field phone calls from sportsman. I was able to ask him about air rifles. Some interesting information presented.

Sunday hunting; PGC fully supports this and he expects some movement at some point. Said that PGC feels that 60-70% of sportsman support it.

Semiautomatic rifles; PGC also fully supports a regulatory transfer and wants to legalize them for groundhogs and coyotes to phase them in. He is headed to testify at a game and fish meeting expressing their support and intentions if a bill passes. He said he expects movement there this session.

Air Rifles; PGC fully supports a regulatory transfer. Matt said that the PGC already has regulations drafted if air rifles are legalized.

It certainly looks like they expect air rifles to become legal and are thinking semi autos may happen as well.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Semi autos and air rifles.

Yet they can't seem to straighten out the regs that make it illegal to hunt with breech loading flintlocks, wheel locks, double barrel muzzle loaders, etc even for the regular firearms seasons. If they can't handle centuries old technology, how can we expect them to handle more recent technologies.

Probably because a tiny percentage of people care about using those types of firearms. Lol.
