Governor Peter Shumlin indicated that he planned to sign S.141 into law when it came to his desk. This historic moment is the first time that new gun legislation in Vermont has been signed in decades, and is the culmination of immense amounts of dedication, work, focus and optimism by the tenacious grassroots volunteers of Gun Sense Vermont and the brave legislators who introduced and fought for this commonsense improvement to current law.
