Tom Venesky: Pennsylvania’s Sunday hunting bill violates U.S. Constitution

While the Pennsylvania bill outlines stronger trespassing penalties, they don’t really apply to everyone. Included in the bill is an exemption for any “unarmed individual” who enters private property, without permission, for the sole purpose of retrieving a hunting dog.

If you’re a private landowner in Pennsylvania, watch closely to what happens when state House Bill 2106 comes up for a floor vote.
And be prepared to be upset.
The bill repeals the prohibition on Sunday hunting, and it recently passed the House Game and Fisheries Committee, paving the way for a floor vote. In committee, every Democrat member voted for the bill, while all Republicans were unified in opposition. But the issue with the bill isn’t really about Sunday hunting. The problem with the proposal is it violates the U.S. Constitution.
