Gun Control Forum Scheduled for Tomorrow at the Vermont State House

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Vermont gun control advocates have invited a Harvard professor to discuss "gun safety," and event organizers have gone so far as to politicize the tragic shooting of Arizona U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in their push for mandatory storage laws in Vermont. Dr. David Hemenway, who they proclaim is the nation's leading expert on firearm death and injury in their press release, will be on hand to equate teen suicides with mandatory storage laws currently being introduced in the Vermont Legislature.

While there is no established link between reducing suicide and mandatory storage, House Bill 83, sponsored by state Representative Waite-Simpson (D-Essex), would undermine a citizen’s right to self-defense by imposing onerous storage requirements on Vermont gun owners, rendering firearms useless in self-defense situations. H. 83 would require households with children to store their firearms unloaded with an installed trigger lock and in a locked container. This “Burglar Protection Bill” would do far more harm than good and is a clear violation of the Second Amendment rights of Vermonters. The NRA has a long history of supporting proper handling of firearms and gun safety, and we fully support personal responsibility inside one's home.

This speech will take place in the Vermont State House tomorrow, at 1 p.m. in Room 11. A question and answer period will follow, and we encourage NRA members to attend.
