Wyoming Governor Signs Hunting With Suppressors Bill Into Law

 

 

 

” On Monday, Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead signed Senate File 132 into law; a bill that allows hunters to use legally owned suppressors to hunt all varmint, big game and trophy animals.

The law takes effect on July 1, 2013, making Wyoming the 28th state to permit the use of silencers for hunting.  Currently, silencers are legal for citizens to own in 39 states.

Prior to being singed into law by the Governor, SF132 was approved by favorable majorities in both the state House and Senate, which respectively voted 44 to 14 and 23 to 7 in support of the bill.

Naturally, the American Silencer Association, which is pushing to have similar bills passed in Montana, Georgia and Vermont this year, applauded the decision.”
