Vermont Rejects Slate Of Anti-Gun Bills

posted on May 17, 2016

Vermont lawmakers rejected a variety of anti-gun bills this year, from so-called “universal” background checks—which did not have the support of the Association of Chiefs of Police—to a ban on lead ammunition, a moratorium on shooting range development, a ban on firearms in restaurants that serve alcohol, mandates requiring citizens to lock up firearms in their homes or report gun ownership to their insurance companies and more, VermontWatchdog.org reports.

Despite pushing about a dozen anti-gun proposals, the gun-ban lobby has shifted its spending this year from legislative to electoral activities in Vermont, according to Evan Hughes of the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs. “They spent some serious money last year, about $300,000,” Hughes said. “That’s big money for lobbying in Vermont. This year they moved their money up to nationwide elections.”
