This last weekend the Barre F&G Club Annual Gun Show had another impressive turnout
of folks who attend the show in the exercise of their rights. And having a very good time.
The Barre F&G Club Gun Show brings thousands of people into Barre. Vendors and the
huge audience are a big boost to the local businesses. But, all of this could end right quick.
Once again there are bills in the Vermont Legislature that would so severely restrict the
show that it endangers the future of the show. This legislation would require a 48 or 72
hour delay on FFL dealers from transferring ownership of a firearm. H.159 is 72 hours
and S.258 is 48 hours.
How many people will come to a show where they cannot purchase a gun? How many
FFLs would rent a table at a show where guns cannot be sold?
Below is how you can help protect the Barre F&G Club Gun Show and the Lamoille Valley F&G Gun Show Wearing orange is encouraged.
Vermont: Your Attendance is Needed at Two Upcoming Statehouse Events
It is critical that Vermont gun owners have a strong showing at the Capitol during the next couple of weeks so that politicians under the gold dome take notice that their gun bans have widespread opposition. Our constitutional rights have been under constant attack in Montpelier, especially during the last three years. This relentless assault on your rights will continue unless gun owners say, “Enough is enough.” NRA members and gun owners in Vermont should mark their calendars for a pair of events coming up and plan to attend.
On Tuesday, February 11, the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs will be hosting its annual legislative mixer. The event will take place in the Capitol cafeteria at 5:00pm on the second floor of the Capitol. Guest speakers have been invited to address topics of concern. You are cordially invited to come hear speakers representing hunting, fishing, trapping and the shooting sports. Several legislators typically attend and the federation will provide snacks, coffee, tea and a cash bar.
The following week, on Tuesday, February 18, the House Judiciary Committee will be holding a public hearing on H.610 in the House Chambers from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. This measure expands the “red flag” law, and blocks firearm transfers on delayed NICS checks. For more details about the hearing, you can click here.
The committee will be taking public testimony, but even if you don’t wish to speak, your attendance will make a difference. Come stand in solidarity with other gun owners, and as always, please wear orange to both events so that legislators can easily see that Vermonters overwhelmingly oppose gun control!
