Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- Last Friday, April 4 2014, another pro-hunting bill was signed into law by Governor Terry McAuliffe (D).
House Bill 307, sponsored by pro-gun Delegate Scott Lingamfelter (R-31), permits local school boards to provide after-school hunter safety education programs for students grades seven through twelve, at the cost of the participant.
