From Vermont Watchdog:

A gun-control group committed to universal background checks was the third-largest spender on lobbyists at the Vermont statehouse this quarter, outspending many of the biggest corporate interests in the Green Mountain State.

Gun Sense Vermont, a recently formed group that bills itself as an “independent, grass-roots organization started by Vermonters,” spent $39,000 for lobbyists for the quarter ending July 25, according to records kept by the Secretary of State’s Office.

Not bad for a group claiming only 200 or so members. Obviously the money is coming from Bloomberg or someone like him. Oh, and — of course — Gun Sense Vermont is headed by a flatlander from Connecticut.
