On Thursday, January 18th, and Friday, January 19th, the Vermont Senate Committee on Judiciary will be hearing S. 209, also known as “Vermont’s Ghost Gun Act.” NRA members and gun rights supporters are urged to contact committee members and request that they OPPOSE this bill.

S. 209 seeks to implement failed California-style policies that require serialization of firearm parts. The ambiguous term “ghost gun” is an invention of anti-gun advocates to restrict the gun-rights of law-abiding citizens. First and foremost, a prohibited individual is prohibited from owning a firearm regardless of how the firearm is assembled. This means that whether that possessed firearm was assembled in a factory, or assembled using a kit, it does not change the fact that possession of that firearm is a criminal act. If passed, this law would require law-abiding gun-owners to contact government agencies and obtain serial numbers whenever they purchase critical parts for their firearms. This will only impact law-abiding citizens because criminals will ignore this law and continue to obtain un-serialized firearms and firearm parts.
Vermont gun-owners should be allowed to repair firearms without being required to contact government agencies to obtain serializations for legally purchased parts. This unfair and egregious overstep by the anti-gun politicians in Vermont must be stopped. To do your part, click the TAKE ACTION button to tell committee members to OPPOSE S. 209.
