From the Vt Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs

Below is the agenda for the House Judiciary Committee for this week.  Note the amount of time set aside for gun control bill H.610.

The members of the gun owner community can make their opposition to H.610, which is not sound public policy and violates the “due process” rights of gun owner known at the public hearing in the state house starting at 5 PM, Tuesday, February 18. Arrival earlier to speak. Wearing orange is encouraged.
