Action Needed to Defeat Virginia's Sunday Hunting Bill
Virginia Senate Bill 154, the Senate companion to House Bill 1237,
has passed in the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural
Resources Committee, putting Virginia’s wildlife closer to being
mercilessly slaughtered on Sundays on private land.
Sponsored by Senator Phil Puckett (D-38), the bill repeals the ban
on Sunday hunting on private lands with written permission from the
owner. The bill was introduced because hunters and their cronies fear
the declining popularity of their sport and they are trying to do all
they can to make it easier for children to be lured into their violent
and bloody way of life.
The next step for this dangerous bill is a vote on the Senate
floor. Please contact your state Senator NOW:
and assert that hunters already have too much opportunity to kill
animals in Virginia, and they should not be able to kill animals at
will any day of the week. Urge them to vote NO on SB 154.
