Vermont: Anti-Gun Bill to be Considered in Committee Next Tuesday

Next Tuesday, February 10, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 31, sponsored by state Senator John Campbell (D-15).  SB 31 seeks to impose restrictions on the private transfer of firearms and will do nothing to keep guns out of the hands of criminals.  It will only create undue and costly burdens for law-abiding Vermonters and is the first step towards completely criminalizing private transfers.  Vermont is one of the safest states in the country and SB 31 is a solution in search of a problem.

Please attend this committee hearing and voice your opposition to Senate Bill 31.  Encourage your family, friends and fellow gun owners to do the same.  Please wear orange or an NRA hat/shirt in order to make yourself easily identifiable to legislators and show them that gun owners are a strong and unified voice in Vermont.  The hearing is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 10.  Information on how to testify and directions can be found here.

Please contact your Senator and politely urge them to OPPOSE this anti-gun legislation.  Also, it is important that you please contact Governor Peter Shumlin and thank him for resisting anti-gun groups and their anti-gun political agenda in Vermont.  Recently, these groups have been contacting the Governor.  Contact information for the Governor is provided below.
