263 is the air rifle bill. I hope this one moves swiftly as well.

Today this bill (HB263) passed unanimously out of Game and Fish. Onto the house floor. The bill, as it sits now, transfers regulatory authority of air rifles for hunting to the PGC. I have been working on this one for awhile. Of course, we have been here before and it died last session. Hoping for a better outcome this time.

There seems to be some movement as the Commissioner Putnam asked for some reports by staff on this.

It will be very interesting to see if Wolf will sign the bill if it gets that far. Given his association with the animal rights groups, and his anti gun stance, I fear this might be a futile exercise.

Very much pushing the bill. But none should be surprised if it doesn't become law at the final step.
