    Vermont goes the way of Massachusetts, New York.....

    I believe the legislature passed an omnibus gun control bill that includes a magazine ban.

    So much for your constituents who voted for you because of your original platform.

    IIRC, there were Democrats who opposed the magazine ban, and the Republican governor was the one pushing for it. Strange times we live in.

    Another disturbing aspect of this is the long term effects on votes by the state's 2 senator's and congressmen. If it were a state where citizens can own 30 round rifle magazines, military style semiauto longarms, and pistol magazines with normal capacity--be it 15-19 rounds, the citizens might expect their senators and congressmen to defend that on a national level and the congressmen and senators might feel that they have to since that is what their constituency is accustomed to and wants.

    However, if their constituency cannot own those things on a state level, not being able to own such will gradually be considered the norm and the citizens will be less concerned about national laws regulating such, and their nationally elected representatives will reflect that in their voting on any national level firearms restrictions.

    It's funny you should mention that. A quote from Gov Phil Scott in an article about the protests and giving away mags...

    We are now embroiled in a culture war. See Glen's intellectual and well thought out posts on the subject.
