A State House committee heard testimony Tuesday supporting a bill that would lift the ban on hunting with a silencer.
But some are questioning whether the proposed law would make it easier for people to commit a crime or poach animals without getting caught.
The bill’s sponsor, Republican Senator John Bulloch, of Ochlocknee, says allowing hunters to use silencers would not only keep them from disturbing their neighbors, they would protect their ears and improve shooting precision.
The gun silencer bill passed unanimously in a Senate committee last week.
