Vermont House District Franklin-5

H.133

H.133 An act relating to emergency relief from abuse orders and relinquishment of firearms – Click Here

I chose to vote NO on H.133 in keeping my promise to my constituents to not vote for or support any new gun legislation. This legislation opens up the door for seizure vs relinquishment which poses a dangerous or even deadly situation for law enforcement and citizens.

As it stands in Vermont statute now a judge can order relinquishment and if the person does not comply they can be held in jail for contempt of court. This bill would promote seizure first.

I believe over all this bill poses a large threat to constitutional rights and is not necessary to be added to Vermont law.
