FIREARMS SILENCERS-OHIO
Ohio lawmakers plan to vote on bill that would allow hunters to use silencers on their guns

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 10:24 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Hunters could use silencers on their guns while hunting certain game under a proposal before the Ohio House.

Representatives are scheduled to vote on the measure Wednesday afternoon. The Senate must still consider the bill.

A House committee passed the bill last month with bipartisan support after lawmakers examined the devices and listened to silenced and unsilenced weapons.

The bill would allow licensed Ohio hunters to use the silencers while hunting certain birds and other wild game, including squirrels, rabbits and deer. Only those authorized under state and federal laws could use the suppressor, which must be properly registered.

Backers of suppressors say they protect hunters' hearing, make field commands easier to hear and reduce disruptions to neighbors. Opponents say quieter weapons are less safe and easier to use illegally.
