Summary as introduced:
Hunting with a rifle.  Repeals a 1954 Act of Assembly that prohibits persons from hunting deer with a rifle in Essex County. This local act is no longer necessary since (i) the County has adopted an ordinance that prohibits the hunting of deer with a rifle greater than .22 caliber and (ii) the Game Department's regulations prohibit the hunting or killing of deer and bear with a rifle less than .23 caliber.
