New York Youth Hunting Bill

Children as young as 12 can hunt “small game” now

NYS Senate Bill 1284 would allow 14 and 15 year olds to hunt “big game” with firearms under mentoring. It passed.

It’s a bad move. In Defense of Animals’ announcement provides all of the arguments you will need:

Most human hunting deaths occur while hunting big game. Children are impulsive, the firearms injury rate is relatively high among the youngest hunters, children who are familiar with weapons and have access have used them for suicide or shooting sprees.

The legislature should promote humane efforts that teach children how to respect other species and not cater to hunting interests at the expense of our children and wildlife.

Contact: Sheldon Silver 518-455-4911 speaker@assembly.state.ny.us to not allow this bill to pass.
