The NRA is leading efforts to repeal the outdated Sunday hunting bans in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. In North Carolina, House Bill 640, sponsored by Rep. Jimmy Dixon (R-4), is a package of pro-hunting provisions including a repeal of the ban on hunting with firearms on private property on Sundays. The bill passed the House on Apr. 28 by an 83-35 vote and is awaiting action in the Committee on Rules and Operations of the Senate. Hunting is currently only allowed in North Carolina on Sundays on private property by two methods of take: archery and falconry. NRA-ILA is continuing to inform senators of the facts surrounding hunting on Sundays and urging supporters to contact their senators. Expanding the method of take for hunting on Sundays is supported by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, the North Carolina Farm Bureau and many sportsmen’s groups.

In Pennsylvania, NRA-ILA is helping Rep. Frank Farina (D-112) and Rep. Robert Godshall, (R-53), recruit co-sponsors for an NRA-backed Sunday hunting bill.  This legislation, yet to be assigned a number, would permit hunting on Sundays in the Keystone State. Currently, hunters in Pennsylvania can only pursue foxes, crows and coyotes on Sundays. NRA-ILA is still collecting signatures on a petition to repeal the outdated ban.
