It got tightened up to "21 and over, no transfers of ownership, no large capacity feeding devices, and no bump stocks". This was in direct response to a young man who had told a friend he had guns and was going to shoot up a school. You can still both open and concealed carry with no permit if you are over 21; our previous law said over 16.

sonya1 I like Vermont, used to go up there to ski. Great ski areas. I like the way it looks too, almost like a different country, no huge advertisements on the highways, not a lot of people, lots of cows and trees, and people with gun racks in their trucks. No ghetto trash. But buying property there is very expensive, that's why we didn't move there. One other thing I like : you can sell milk there and cheese, legally.

H_Nelson Hmmm.. Been to Vermont one time. Flew in, a 12 pack van picked us up, went straight to the school house. It was a 2 week grueling 12-18 hours a day crash course on catching hackers. 12 pack van to the airport, flew out. By the time I was finished, I could dissect and read IP packets in hex, determine if it was a hand-crafted or automated attack, point of origin, etc. Fun course but was inside a building pretty much 24/7 for the duration.

Wolfsbane What, if anything, is being done about this?

Back when I lived in Vermont in the 70s and 80s, it was fairly easy to get voter referendums on the ballot. Can this be countered by a good old fashioned voter revolt by the people while tempers are up and people are willing to sign ballot petitions?

I was taken by surprise by this and I'm a bit concerned. All my guns that aren't allowed in NYC, currently reside at my sister's place in Vermont.

Same here. Too close to uber liberal states for my taste. No state is perfect, so it just comes down to which state best fits what we want in life.

catfeet And? Controlling who and when is just smart business, what with the mad climb in the rate of school shootings. It does not eliminate or change the second amendment. A removal or significant change would see the peasants storming Montpelier with sickles and hoes in hand. Heck, we are one of the few states that allows both open& concealed carry without a permit. We do really love our guns here. That said, putting them in the hands of crazy and/or too young/unable to make good choices does no-one any good.

BTW; democratic socialist is the very epitome of an oxymoron. The implicit use of force involved in the implementation of socialist redistribution programs overrides and invalidates the democracy part.

In gun-friendly Vermont, lawmakers pass firearms control bill
Reuters Staff


(Reuters) - Vermont lawmakers gave final legislative approval on Friday to a bill that raises the legal age for buying firearms and expands background checks, becoming the latest state poised to tighten gun restrictions after last month’s Florida school massacre.

The Democrat-controlled state Senate approved the measure, S55, in a 17-13 vote, according to the online legislative record. The bill passed the state House of Representatives this week.

The measure now goes to Republican Governor Phil Scott, who has shifted his stance and voiced support for some gun controls after the arrest in February of a Vermont teenager accused of threatening to shoot up a high school. The incident came two days after a former student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14.


Scott’s support for gun controls marked a sharp switch for a governor with a 93 percent approval rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) gun rights advocacy group in an otherwise politically liberal state with a reputation as a pro-gun stronghold.

Vermont, a largely rural New England state with a passion for hunting, is one of two dozen states where efforts to curb gun violence have gained momentum since the Feb. 14 shooting rampage that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The Vermont bill raises the age for gun purchases to 21 and expands background checks for private gun sales. It also bans magazines of more than 10 rounds for long guns and 15 rounds for pistols as well as rapid-fire devices known as bump stocks.

Vermont Public Radio reported that the Senate would take up two more gun-related measures next week. Both are aimed at removing guns from homes in cases of domestic violence or when someone is at risk of imminent harm from firearms, it said.

Gun control advocates say the turnaround in Vermont and other states has been propelled in part by the groundswell of student-led lobbying efforts and protests calling for firearms restrictions.

After the Parkland massacre, Florida’s Republican-controlled legislature swiftly passed a bill that raised the age requirement and set a three-day waiting period for gun purchases and allowed the arming of some school personnel. The measure was signed into law by another Republican with strong NRA credentials, Governor Rick Scott.

catfeet ITA - came here from CNY, so I feel 'ya! (in reverse). VT gun law amounts to "don't think about doing bad stuff with your gun...shoot lotsa deer, and own what you want".

The only thing I can really complain about is the healthcare exchange and their record keeping. That, frankly, sucks but hey, my friends in CNY dealing with that version say theirs sucks too.

RottieMom I stand corrected on one thing.... Felons can no longer have hand guns.... because of a FEDERAL LAW (Vermonters must be very angry!) We can thank the current administration in Washington for this-- that is what "federal" means.

A new state law prohibits violent criminals from having guns (and I believe that includes people who have been deemed "mentally insane").

Hm. Well, if someone hears "command voices"... Or they've been convicted of a violent crime? I can see how folks would want to keep the peace. You can't rely on people to be sane or good.

Here's a very recent link (8 days old at the time of this writing) and a cut n paste of relevant text.

"Who can own a gun?

Vermont residents over age 16 can own handguns. Federal law prohibits certain people, such as felons, from possessing guns. A state law prohibits people convicted of a violent crime from possessing firearms.

Do I need a permit to carry a weapon?

Vermont does not issue permits or require people who can legally possess weapons to carry either a concealed gun or an openly worn firearm. The Vermont Supreme Court ruled, in the 1903 case State v. Rosenthal, that a Rutland ordinance requiring people to obtain permission to carry weapons was "inconsistent with and repugnant to the Constitution and the laws of the state."

Is there anywhere in Vermont where I can't possess a weapon?

School grounds, school buses and courthouses.

Can I conceal carry in other states?

Congress is considering a law that would create concealed carry reciprocity.

Vermont blows. Count me as never wanting to live in Vermont. BTW, gun control is comming to your paradise. Glad you enjoy it there.

Your ability to cut 'n paste what will be a two-year old article, come April, is... quite impressive.

Some how the large amounts of tourism (which, besides Dairy farming is a big piece of the economic pie) tells me that there are folks out there who like the place (besides the residents). But, as a male friend of mine used to say, holding aloft a beer in his hand, as we'd watch the tourists drive home... "Happy Trails... Just leave your daughters and your credit card numbers. That's all we can ask."

And the whole "Gun control is coming" thing... Jezum Crow. That statement's a few pickles short of a full barrel. It's a state that's a lot of things (often good things, when you look past "labels") but every single politician there is pro-gun. The only way "gun control" could happen would be some sort of federal thing-- and yes, there are restrictions--namely, out-of-staters can't buy guns and just dash across state lines back home... but "gun control is coming"?

Vermonters have been electing Bernie since 1981, when he first ran for mayor of Burlington. I was too young to vote (and didn't live in Burlington) but the man who would become my late husband did vote for Bernie in that election and the subsequent one. My late husband, God rest his filandering soul, was a Vermont Republican.

Bernie isn't a Communist. He's a democratic socialist-- think along the ideology of Norway but with a lot of capitalism thrown in. Over the last 37 years the good folks of Vermont keep electing him for every office he runs for, because he's done great things for the place. Burlington was a down-and-out rust-belt college town, but was revitalised well, after Bernie became mayor.

The current government is: Republican Governor (Phil Scott-- he's been in Vt politics a long time. Good man. As I recall he was a stock car racer, too), with Progressive Party Lt. Governor (Dave Zuckerman, a long-haired environmentalist) and Democratic Socialist Senator (Bernie-crazy-haired Jewish guy originally from NYC, but a long-time Vermonter), with smatterings of other parties (Green, Labor, etc.) everywhere. I know of no Communists. Of course, there might be one as mayor of a small town or something. Hard tellin' not knowin.'

Oh, and btw, that Republican Governor just made recreational marijuana use COMPLETELY LEGAL. Retail sales start in July. And you can bet your bottom dollar there'll be some taxes in there! (Hey, Vermonters will just grow their own, and the tourists will buy retail and pay the taxes so.... I don't think many people will stress over it....)

Few voters pay attention to labels. They're more focused on issues, and how well the elected officials will reflect the needs and desires of the folk in the state.... People vote across party lines on a regular basis.

And EVERY single one of those politicians--I don't care what party they're in-- are pro-gun.
