North Carolina ends prohibition on hunting with silencers

Governor Pat McCrory signed H937 into law today, ending the legal prohibition on the use of legal firearms silencers while hunting in an otherwise lawful manner. A National Rifle Association omnibus bill that makes numerous changes to gun laws in North Carolina, H937 goes into effect on October 1, 2013. The NRA-ILA characterizes the bill as "the most comprehensive pro-gun reform bill in the Tar Heel State's history since 1995."

This legislation was passed after a coordinated effort by the NRA, the North Carolina Rifle and Pistol Association, and concerned citizens who took the time to contact their legislators in support of the bill.
