The "Get the Lead Out of Vermont" report released last month by the Vermont Attorney General and State Department of Health has spawned a far-reaching bill that could allow Vermont municipalities to outlaw shooting ranges and even the mere possession of lead ammunition.
The new legislation, H352, sponsored by Representative Helen Head (D-Chittenden 3-10), is a comprehensive bill that seeks to change all references to "lead paint" in current Vermont statute to "lead." It transfers enforcement authority of "lead contamination" violations to the cities and towns.
This legislation is a direct assault on manufacturers and retailers of ammunition and on the very right to the mere possession of ammunition by Vermont hunters, shooters and gun owners.
Please call your legislator today at 802-828-2228 and ask him or her to oppose H352!
