Baruth gun bill won’t stop gun crime, Defender General says - Vermont Daily

Well-intentioned gun control bills like S30 don’t actually do much to stop gun crime, Defender General Matt Valerio says.

“Baruth opened a Wednesday, Jan. 20 hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee by explaining why he proposed S30: the “unprecedented” threat posed by gun-toting Americans upset by political opponents and mask-wearing policies. Last year, intimidating citizens brought firearms into state houses, Baruth said. “The pandemic intensified that. Anti mask protests began to merge with armed groups. People in daily life who ask others to wear a mask are being routinely assaulted and threatened…. We’re in an unprecedented time.”"
