Wyoming Repeals Suppressor Ban

Way back in December our Shooting Editor, John B. Snow, covered why suppressors matter. When that article was published, there were 39 states which allowed civilians to own suppressors.

Another state was added to the list Monday when Wyoming passed a bill which repealed the prohibition of hunting with supressors.

In February, Governor Matt Mead (R) signed into law Senate File 132, legislation introduced by Senator Ogden Driskill (R-01) that allows the use of suppressors for hunting all game in the Cowboy State. The Wyoming House of Representatives voted 44 to 14 in favor of this pro-hunting reform, while the state Senate voted 23 to 7.The reforms took effect on Monday, The Daily Caller reports.

Arizona, Texas, and Oklahoma recently passed laws legalizing suppressor while hunting game.
