Vermont Antis Introduce “Universal” Background Check Bill

posted on January 6, 2017

Anti-gun activists in Vermont are starting the legislative session by pushing a so-called “universal” background check measure—in one of the safest states in the nation.

On the very first day of the session, Senate Bill 6 was introduced—a measure that would require a background check on every gun transfer in the state. This aggressive action demonstrates that anti-gun legislators are determined to once again attack lawful gun owners in the Green Mountain State, since the unenforceable bill will only burden law-abiding gun owners and do nothing to prevent crime

The most recent state to institute such a measure was Nevada, which has seen its new law fraught with problems. Just before the law was to take effect, the state attorney general deemed it “unenforceable.” Shortly thereafter, county sheriffs announced they would not be enforcing the new law at all.
