VA. Chambers pass a bill to allow Sunday hunting

According to the website a bill passed both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly.

If signed by Governor Glenn Youngkin it will allow hunting on Sundays on both private and public land.

If approved and signed by the governor it will go into effect on July 1.

Opposition on religious grounds led to the amendment that hunting will not be allowed within 200 yards of a place of worship.

Originally the bill to ban hunting on Sundays was established in 1643 to protect the Christian Sabbath.
