SF374 was written to allow use of artificial light for coyote hunting at night. Not a firearms legislation change, but closely related. Does anyone know anything about this? Last I heard it was recommended for approval by a subcommittee. I hope this law change happens.

Looks like it made it out of committee.

It went in as SF374 and came out as SF537. It reads as infrared light source only mounted to the weapon or scope.ANDYFIERParticipantMarch 12, 2019 at 7:42 amPost count: 2
Well that would cover NV scopes for rifles.scruffyParticipantMarch 23, 2019 at 2:28 pmPost count: 2403
Looks like it passed the senate (47 yes, 1 no) and will be discussed in the house subcommittee on Monday. Progress.
My Christmas list would change if this bill was passed. 😉scruffyParticipantApril 6, 2019 at 9:16 pmPost count: 2403
Looks like this died, stalled, based on the link above in the thread??? Just checking if anyone else has heard something different?seven twentyParticipantApril 7, 2019 at 7:06 pmPost count: 259
Local officer told me previously that IR and NV scopes were legal as they do not “project a beam of light”. Either the officer was wrong or this legislation was just there to put it in writing.smallmunsterParticipantApril 8, 2019 at 10:59 pmPost count: 88
As I understand it thermal is legal since no light is emitted. Night vision scopes are legal when there is no extra IR illumination, ie using only natural ambient light. A night vision scope used with any IR illuminator is not legal since it still emits light even though the light is not visible to the naked eye.
