Hunting with Silencers now legal in Alabama – UPDATE

ALABAMA: SUPPRESSOR HUNTING LEGALIZED – EFFECTIVE LATE JUNE
Written by ASA on May 3, 2014 – Comments

This morning, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Advisory Board voted unanimously to repeal the prohibition on the use of suppressors while hunting for all game and non-game animals, effective immediately. When the regulation takes effect in late June, Alabama will become the 32nd state to allow hunters to use legally possessed suppressors in the field. On July 1, Georgia will become the 33rd. Of the 33 states, only Louisiana and Montana restrict their use to non-game animals.

The new state regulation, §220-2-.02 (1)(e), will read:

It shall be unlawful to possess fully automatic firearms or silenced firearms while hunting any species of wildlife.

This change marks a major step in the right direction for hunters across the country who wish to protect their hearing. Alabama joins Georgia as the second state to legalize suppressor hunting in 2014. Similar measures are also in progress in Louisiana and Ohio.

The ASA would like to thank everyone who worked on the issue, including the members of the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries (WFF) who raised the issue at the March 1st Conservation Advisory Board (CAB) meeting. In addition, we would like to thank all of the members of the CAB for their unanimous support.

The ASA looks forward to continuing to work towards our goal of legalizing suppressor ownership and hunting in all 50 states. We would like to thank Alabama for taking us all one step closer.

*The ASA previously reported that the new regulation began effective immediately. After speaking with Legal Counsel for the Alabama DCNR, we became aware that the regulatory change must still go through a final administrative process before taking effect. We have been told that the new regulation will go into effect in late June. When we learn of a concrete date, we will inform everyone. We apologize for the error.

Oklahoma Update

OKLAHOMA HOUSE VOTES TO OVERRIDE SHALL SIGN LEGISLATION VETO
Written by ASA on April 30, 2014 – Comments

Today, the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted 86-3 to override the Gov. Mary Fallin’s veto of House Bill 2461. The bill, which was one of 15 House bills that the governor vetoed on Tuesday morning, would have required Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEOs) in Oklahoma to sign NFA applications within 15 days of receipt, unless the applicant was found to be a prohibited person. HB 2461 previously passed the House by a 92-1margin, and the Senate with a unanimous 46-0 vote.

During a press conference, Fallin explained her decision by stating, “I’ve used my executive power, my executive authority to set aside ‘minor issues’ so that we can have more time to deal with major issues here at the Capitol and hopefully get the attention to get those things done.”

The ASA strongly condemns Gov. Fallin’s decision to veto a bill which was passed with near unanimous support through both chambers. We support the move by the House, and hope that the Senate will do the same.

In recent weeks, Shall Sign legislation has advanced in a number of states across the country. On April 2, Governor Herbert signed House Bill 373 into law, making Utah the first state this session to pass this type of legislation. On April 11, Gov. Beshear of Kentucky signed House Bill 128 into law, an omnibus bill which included shall sign language from Senate Bill 232. On April 23, Gov. Brownback of Kansas signed House Bill 2578 into law, and on April 23, Gov. Brewer of Arizona did the same when she signed House Bill 2535.

Please contact members of the Senate IMMEDIATELY and urge them to override the veto. Also, please contact Gov. Fallin and voice your disapproval of the veto. Contact information can be found here:

OKLAHOMA SHALL SIGN LEGISLATION VETOED

From the American Suppressor Association:

OKLAHOMA SHALL SIGN LEGISLATION VETOED

This morning, Oklahoma House Bill 2461 was vetoed by Gov. Mary Fallin. The bill would have required Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEOs) in Oklahoma to sign NFA applications within 15 days of receipt, unless the applicant was found to be a prohibited person. HB 2461 previously passed the House by a 92-1 margin, and the Senate with a unanimous 46-0 vote.

During a press conference, Fallin explained her decision by stating, “I’ve used my executive power, my executive authority to set aside ‘minor issues’ so that we can have more time to deal with major issues here at the Capitol and hopefully get the attention to get those things done.”

The ASA strongly condemns Gov. Fallin’s decision to veto a bill which was passed with near unanimous support through both chambers.

“Any bill that is passed by a legislature with only one dissenting vote is not a ‘minor issue’. We are currently exploring all options, and will work to ensure the passage of this legislation this session,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of the ASA.

In recent weeks, Shall Sign legislation has advanced in a number of states across the country. On April 2, Governor Herbert signed House Bill 373 into law, making Utah the first state this session to pass this type of legislation. On April 11, Gov. Beshear of Kentucky signed House Bill 128 into law, an omnibus bill which included shall sign language from Senate Bill 232. On April 23, Gov. Brownback of Kansas signed House Bill 2578 into law, and on April 23, Gov. Brewer of Arizona did the same when she signed House Bill 2535.

Please contact Gov. Fallin IMMEDIATELY and voice your disapproval of the veto. Contact information can be found here:

Brandon from Allen Arms Tactical bagged himself a 7 1/2ft Gator last weekend using his SPR/M4 5.56mm silencer.
