Vermont Act Now: Waiting period bill with Governor

Cowboy with gun

We can celebrate that on Wednesday (05/15), the 24-hour waiting period bill passed both houses of the legislature. Now it’s on Governor Scott for final signature. Significant legislation because it will essentially do away with gun shows. This according to the NRA who ask their gun nut members to call the Governor. So, he needs support from the gun violence prevention side to help him finalize this bill into law.

The Bill

👍 Senate Bill 169 would require a waiting period or a “cooling-off” period of 24 hours before receiving a gun.
