Bill to Outlaw Laser Sights for Hunting

Senate Bill 1420 will make the use of a laser sight illegal for hunting. Except for battery powered scoping devices that project a light or dot inside the scope and pin sight lights on archery equipment, no person shall use a laser sighting device as a hunting aid.  As used in this section "laser sighting device" means any artificial light or any form that casts or reflects a beam of light onto or otherwise illuminates wildlife.
The provisions of this act shall not apply to persons who are one hundred percent disabled as certified by a physician licensed in this state or any state which borders this state, if the person is hunting on private property and is accompanied by a licensed hunter.
The bill has passed the Committee on Tourism and Wildlife and has been sent to the Senate floor.
