got this from the gun control forum:

Pennsylvania remains under a State of Emergecy which was declared during Hurricane Sandy. From the PA Uniform Firearms Act:

§ 6107. Prohibited conduct during emergency.

No person shall carry a firearm, rifle or shotgun upon the public streets or upon any public property during an emergency proclaimed by a State or municipal governmental executive unless that person is:
1) Actively engaged in a defense of that person's life or property from peril or threat.
2) Licensed to carry firearms under section 6109 (relating to licenses) or is exempt from licensing under section 6106(b) (relating to firearms not to be carried without a license).
if PA is still under a state of emergency and you can not carry a firearm on public property, can we hunt on public property at this time?

the answer seems to be NO, i'm going anyway.

Then why did you ask?

Number one, read Section 6106; hunting, target shooting, etc. are all exceptions. Hunting has never been restricted during a state of emergency. This only relates to carrying long guns in public that don't fit any of the exceptions of 6106.

Number two; you think you're not allowed to hunt, but publicly state on an internet forum that you're going anyhow. You didn't think you'd get any flack from blatantly defying what you believe to be a law? Wow. Nice timing too, I'm sure your post will appear someplace in the current gun control debate crisis.
