Persistence paid off for a pair of pro-2A Vermont lawmakers this year, the NRA reports.
The Vermont House yesterday refused to vote on an amendment to allow noise suppressors for hunting, and instead sent the whole bill to the pro-gun control House Judiciary Committee.
They’re not really ‘silencers,’ but noise suppressors can save the hearing of people exposed to loud firearms, say both Republican and Democratic supporters of a bill before the House today.
In less than a week, the Vermont Legislature passed a gun control bill to replace S30. Will it too face a veto?
For the first time ever, Vermont law would allow the government to seize a citizen’s guns without notification. The bill passed the Senate and goes to the House floor tomorrow.
A ‘compromise’ bill to the vetoed S30 was approved by Senate Judiciary today. It creates a seven-day waiting period, allows gun seizure without due process, and lets out-of-staters use high-capacity mags.
Vermont firearms purchases last year dropped about 10% below the all-time high of 2020.
Gov. Phil Scott has vetoed S30 because it takes the firearms purchase waiting period out of the federal government’s hands, where it belongs.
Rep. Pat Brennan says the Legislature wouldn’t bend on the 30 day waiting period it added to S30, which he calls a “gun grab.”
Gov. Phil Scott today signaled he would likely veto S30, which restricts gun rights.
