The Wisconsin legislature is considering a bill that would permit toddlers to hunt with firearms.

Even toddlers can hunt with guns in Wisconsin, under a bill the state Assembly passed that removes age restrictions on the sport. The previous bill set the age at 12, while 10-year-olds could hunt with a “mentor,” usually a parent or a guardian. The new law removes that restriction, leaving the minimum age up to parents to decide. It also eliminates the limit on the number of guns young hunters can carry at one time.

The NRA approves the bill.

The NRA supports the bill and released a statement to “thank the Assembly members who helped pass this important piece of legislation to promote our hunting heritage.”
