Do You own night vision optics?
West Virginia –-(Ammoland.com)- Maybe your thinking about owning night vision? Well, the state apparently does not want you to. But they're not going so far as to just ban night vision.
But they only want to ban it if you happen to have a firearm.
Night vision is very expensive, and extremely useful technology. It gives the night back to mankind. You can use it in a million ways to do a million things in the dark, that you could never before do.
Have you ever looked at the stars with quality night vision? Trust me, the view is stunning.
This bill is guised as a “poaching” bill. But we know better. We can tell because hunting deer at night is already illegal. This is about discouraging the use of night vision among gun owners..
I promise you, if you're using night vision for whatever reason, and happen to have your concealed carry firearm on you, DNR, or WVSP, or whomever the arresting agency is, will very much appreciate your gift to them. Because they'll confiscate that night vision right along with your handgun.
Remember, this is not about hunting or poaching. Because hunting at night is already illegal. They don't need an extra section in the law. This is about denying you modern defensive technology.
There are bills in both houses, and they are poised to run.
