The law is intended to provide a "cooling off" period for people considering suicide. The bill also updates language regarding the purchase and use of high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The law, if signed as is by Governor Phil Scott, would:

  • Establish a 24-hour waiting period for the purchase of handguns; and,
  • Update and provide clarity on several restrictions on the transfer and use of high capacity ammunition feeding devices.
