Vermont Governor Vetoes Handgun Waiting Period Bill

Published

on

The Burlington Free Press reported earlier this week on Vermont’s Republican Governor Phil Scott vetoing legislation that would have mandated a 24-hour waiting period to buy a handgun.

In 2018, Vermont passed a significant amount of gun control legislation such as bump stock bans and universal gun registration in the wake of the Parkland shooting.

However, Governor Scott is currently satisfied with the gun control laws that Maine has on the books and did not believe the handgun waiting period bill fully addresses areas of concern.

Scott stated, “Last year, I called for and signed a package of historic gun safety reforms because I believe they make schools, communities, families and individuals safer, while upholding Vermonters’ constitutional rights.”

The bill in question is S.169.

The governor added, “With these measures in place, we must now prioritize strategies that address the underlying causes of violence and suicide. I do not believe S.169 addresses these areas.”

Gun owners in Vermont can breathe a temporary sigh of relief.

Historically one of America’s most pro-gun states, Vermont has taken an anti-gun turn in 2018 like some other states did after the Parkland shooting.

Scott’s veto gives Vermont gun owners some breathing room, but the Pandora’s Box he opened up in 2018 could end up biting Green Mountain State gun owners in the rear in the long-term.

Gun control has not only proven difficult to repeal, but once it’s passed, it tends to lead to more gun control schemes.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages

In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.

She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”

Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”

Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”

With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.

They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.

The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
