Wyoming Makes Hunting With Suppressors Legal

In some areas of the United States, legislators are hard at work devising new laws to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens to own and use firearms. But, in other areas, the opposite is happening. Take for example Wyoming where lawmakers have made it legal to hunt with suppressors. Here is a short announcement from the American Silencer Association.


New Law Goes Into Effect July 1, 2013

The American Silencer Association is pleased to announce that on February 18, Governor Matt Mead signed SF0132 into law, granting hunters in the state of Wyoming the right to use legally owned suppressors while hunting all varmint, big game, and trophy animals. The new law will also legalize the possession of suppressors “anywhere where game may occur”, eliminating an ambiguous interpretation of the law by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department which made it unclear whether it was previously legal to use suppressors at outdoor shooting ranges. However, it is important to note that under the new law landowners may restrict the use of suppressors on private land.

    i am sooooooo glad to see a state stand up for its people and gun owners.
    now is the time to stand up to obama and his puppets and show them we will
    FIGHT for our rights to protect the 2nd amendment and the will of the people for freedom from these corrupt politicians.

    Are there any stats on surpressor use in crime? I understand it’s pretty much a non-issue but if we can’t quote a number, it’s only an opinion.

    Is it legal for the military or Law Enforcement to use silencers? If it is, then we the people should be allowed to use them also. Actually, since the military and LE are allowed to use fully automatic weapons, then we the people should also be granted the right to use guns that are equal to the firepower and number of rounds per minute used. A gun should be allowed if the person takes a training course and is capable of handling any weapon that the military or LE uses. We the people should have access to any weapon that is used by the military or Law Enforcement uses to stay at an even match for the 2nd. Amendment, when written, made sure we had the same guns or weapons that the British had when they came over to take our guns so why should it be any different now…just wondering….
