Vermont Legislature to Resume Discussion on Gun Restrictions

by AP  |  Published on March 14, 2018

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Gov. Phil Scott said Tuesday that the debate in the Legislature about restrictions on gun ownership would resume now that lawmakers have returned from their weeklong, mid-session break.

With lawmakers back in Montpelier, the Republican governor, said he supported bills under consideration in both the House and the Senate.

“They are continuing,” Scott said of the discussion among lawmakers. “It may not have been as quick as I had hoped, but at this point in time we are still having the conversations.”

Before the break began March 2, both the House and Senate had passed different pieces of legislation, but they failed to give final approval to anything, as Scott had asked.

The push for what in other states might be considered minor pieces of gun control legislation came after Vermont police broke up a plan by a Poultney teenager to shoot up the Fair Haven Union High School. The teenager was arrested the day after the shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school that killed 17.
