VT: Vermont House Gives Final Approval To Bill Imposing Waiting Period For Gun Purchases
Submitted">Mark A. Taff

A new era for gun control is continuing in Vermont. The Vermont House has given final approval to a bill that sets a waiting period for the purchase of handguns and sent the measure to the governor.

S.169 received preliminary approval Wednesday in the Vermont House on an 82 to 58 roll call vote and on Thursday morning a voice vote provided final approval of the measure.

Although it's disgusting that any so-called "gun safety" legislation passes at all, the 24hr wait isn't that controversial.

For example, Pennsylvania has had a 48hr waiting period between purchase and delivery of handguns since Shep was a pup. It was in place when I bought my first handgun in 1967, and had been for quite awhile before then.

Waiting is a pain in the butt, but such laws are not unheard of, not even in gun-friendly states like PA.

Waiting period laws become egregious, however, when they extend to 10, or 15, or 20 or more days. They can't be rationalized by "cooling off" or "background check" nonsense, and their purpose is specifically to harass gun owners.

But 24hrs? A mere hangnail.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
