Junior hunting update

I’ve seen a lot of nonsense over the years on how legislation moves in Albany, but this is a new one.

State budget bills are supposed to only include appropriations.  Governor Cuomo tried including a proposal to drop the age to 12 to hunt wildlife with a gun in EnCon bill A-3008C/S-2508C. That was removed when the bill was amended last week.  What passed in a different bill A-3005C/S-2505C was a 2-year pilot program for 12 year olds to hunt deer only with a gun north of Westchester.  They stuck that under criminal justice and public safety of all places.  Never saw that before.

  1. I’m surprised the socialists allowed us to teach our children how to hunt. After all, their MO is to suppress gun ownership. I guess we dodged a bullet.
