The House Fish, Wildlife & Water Resources Committee is currently considering H. 484, which could potentially ban the sale and use of virtually all ammunition in Vermont.
The bill would require the Secretary of Natural Resources to set up a program to identify and ban the distribution of certain toxic chemicals. Even the Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation indicated recently in testimony before the committee that the enactment of this legislation could outlaw the ammunition you use for hunting, plinking, or self-defense. In addition to the bill’s potential to ban ammunition, the sweeping nature of H. 484 could easily implicate any number of products used by gun owners and sportsmen, such as cleaning solvents and materials.
Due to an outpouring of opposition, new language is being circulated that could eliminate the concerns of gun owners and sportsmen. NRA-ILA is currently evaluating the language and will let you know if the new version of the bill will affect gun owners. Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates on this matter.
