WHAT YOU CAN DO                          

Contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to pass Senate Bill 31 out of committee when the legislative session resumes in January, 2022.

CALL: 802-828-2228 (Sergeant-at-Arms)

SAY: "I would like to leave a message for Senators Sears, Nitka, Benning, White, and Baruth. Please ask them to take up Senate Bill 31 and pass it on to the full Senate for a vote." Please feel free to add anything else of importance to you about waiting periods, but keep it brief.

You can also leave a message for your Senator(s) at any time telling them that you support a waiting period for all gun purchases.
