Bills introduced into the Vermont Senate would set a 48-hour waiting period for most firearms transfers, allow health care providers to notify police when a patient may harm self or others with a gun, and ban carrying firearms in some public places, Eric Davis of Gun Owners of Vermont (GoVT) reports.
“Anyone packing for Montpelier on the 17th ought to answer this question: Why would you arm yourself for a peaceable assembly?” Why indeed? Even as a non-gun owner, some rather obvious reasons come mind. First, Vermonters have the legal right to carry. Second, a firearm might come in handy if someone starts shooting at you or someone else.
With a month left to go, gun sales in Vermont appear to have exceeded 50,000 for the first time since the federal government began conducting firearms background checks in 1998
Regardless of how we got here, or who is at fault, we can be sure of two things: that gun control politicians will always double down on bad policy with more gun control, and, if the situation in West Pawlet continues to deteriorate, gun control politicians certainly will not propose a “fix” that involves repealing the prohibition of anything.
