Hunting legislation needs updating

A few weeks ago, I introduced a local law that would allow 12 and 13-year-old children in Erie County to hunt big game with a firearm or crossbow under adult supervision. For years, New York state has been the only state in the country not to allow this. Since the governor signed the Environmental Conservation Law, individual counties in New York state are able to opt-in to the change. I am strongly advocating for Erie County to opt-in.
