Vermont: Sportsmen Protection Bill to be Heard in House Committee Tomorrow

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Legislation Allowing Handguns to be Carried for Protection during Archery Season and Dog Training

Tomorrow, the House Committee on Fish, Wildlife and Water Resources will hear House Bill 129.  This NRA-supported bill introduced by state Representative Patrick Brennan (R-Chittenden-9-2) would allow bow hunters and dog trainers to carry a handgun for self-defense while in the field.  Currently, Vermont law and hunting regulations prohibit the carrying of a firearm while engaged in bow hunting or dog training.  A growing number of states are amending their laws to allow such a practice.  This bill needs your support, so please contact Committee members in advance of their  9:00 a.m. meeting tomorrow, February 13.

Because sportsmen are often in remote rural areas, they are left vulnerable by the current prohibition on carrying a handgun for self-defense.  With outdoor crime being a true threat as well as the possibility of an encounter with dangerous wildlife, sportsmen should not be left defenseless.  It is important that you call committee members and ask for their support of this common sense provision to allow Vermonters to protect themselves while enjoying the state’s long-held hunting traditions.

Please contact members of this committee and respectfully ask them to support House Bill 129!
