Vermont Legislature Reconvenes, Anti-Gun Bill Already Introduced

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

 The Vermont State Legislature reconvened in Montpelier this week for the 2009-2010 Legislative Session.  One piece of anti-gun legislation has already been introduced. 

NRA opposes
Senate Bill 168
, sponsored by State Senator Vincent Illuzzi (R – Essex-Orleans District), a bill that penalizes the "negligent use of firearms."  Vermont already has reckless endangerment laws on the books, under which an individual who acts in a negligent manner can be charged, whether the incident involves a firearm, a vehicle or a backyard swimming pool.  S168 unfairly singles out gun owners.  This bill represents nothing but irrational prejudice against firearms and law-abiding owners.

Please call the members of the Vermont State Legislature TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose Senate Bill 168.   Contact information for the members of the House of Representatives can be found by clicking

We will keep you alerted as to when any other firearm-related legislation is introduced.  Please continue to check and your e-mail for updates throughout the legislative session.
