California: Anti-Hunting Bill Passes in the Senate
Yesterday, anti-hunting SB 1221 failed on first vote in the state Senate by one vote. After being placed on call for a second vote, it unfortunately passed 22 to 15. SB 1221, which bans hunting bears and bobcats with dogs, will now be sent to the state Assembly for its consideration. Unfortunately, state Senators Bill Emmerson (R-37) and Tony Strickland (R-19), who have solid Second Amendment and pro-hunting records, provided the deciding votes to pass anti-hunting SB 1221.
