House Bill 500[/color], sponsored by Representative John Burt (R-Hillsborough 39), has been scheduled for a hearing before the House Fish and Game and Marine Resources Committee on February 17, at 10:15 A.M. in LOB 305.
If passed, HB 500 would revise state law to allow a person to use a firearm sound suppressor while hunting in the Granite State. Currently, hunters and sportsmen in 35 states across the country are able to use these sound suppressing devices for the taking of wildlife.
There are numerous benefits to hunting with suppressed firearms, including:
[list type=disc]
[li] Elimination of noise complaints frequently used as an excuse to close hunting lands throughout the country, resulting in the protection of hunting areas well into the future.[/li]
[/list] [list type=disc]
[li] Reduction of recoil and muzzle rise resulting in increased accuracy of hunters. More accurate shooting in the field means fewer wounded and lost animals, good for both hunters and wildlife.[/li]
[/list] [list type=disc]
[li] Reduction in muzzle report to hearing-safe levels, limiting the risk that the hunter or anyone with the hunter will suffer permanent hearing loss if they fail to use hearing protection.[/li]
[/list] Using the contact information provided below, please email members of this Committee today and urge them to support HB 500.
