UPDATE: HUNTING WITH SUPPRESSORS BILL SIGNED INTO LAW
New Law Goes Into Effect October 1, 2013
The American Silencer Association is pleased to announce that Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 937 into law, granting hunters in the state of North Carolina the right to use legally obtained suppressors while hunting all varmint, big game, and trophy animals. The new law, which was a part of the NRA omnibus bill, makes North Carolina the third state to reform suppressor hunting laws in 2013.
The ASA would like to thank the NRA, Governor McCrory, the North Carolina Rifle and Pistol Association, the legislators who voted to pass the bill, and all individuals who took the time to contact their elected officials in support of the legislation.
Congratulations to North Carolina! Happy Hunting!
