Right now, Vermont state law trumps local law regarding gun laws. While some in Burlington might like to change that, it would be a long, tough slog to do so. After all, why should a Vermont resident suddenly become a criminal just because he drove through the City of Burlington?
But, that’s not stopping the city council from drawing up their own, stricter gun control ordinance. From VTDigger:
The measures would ban assault weapons, restrict those with domestic violence convictions from obtaining a firearm, require a permitting process for concealed weapons, ban firearms from establishments that serve alcohol, and require that firearms be kept â€śunder lock and key,â€ť separate from another locked location where ammunition is kept.
Yeah, good luck, paisano.
