In more NFA news, Florida introduced a proposal that would remove a prohibition on the use of pistol and rifle suppressors, when hunting deer, gray squirrels, rabbits, wild turkeys, quail and crows. If this proposal is approved in November, Florida will be added to the other 32 states that have approved game hunting with suppressors. Interestingly, hunting all game with a shotgun suppressor is already permitted in Florida.
