Vermont Gun Control Politics on Vermont This Week

Crossover was yesterday and the political community and media in Vermont
is discussing the status of all proposed legislation but the gun control issue
has been one they have discussed as a huge issue this session.

Vermont Public Television has the show "Vermont This Week" in which the 
moderator Stewart Ledbetter has three members of the media as guests on
a panel to discuss political issues and events of the week. 

The show airs on Friday evenings at 7:30 PM  and is rebroadcast on Sunday
mornings at 11:30 AM on VPT Channel 33  (See video down below)
This week they closed with about 3 minutes on gun control in the Vermont
State House.  In recent months it was more likely they would open on gun
control legislation.   Notice how Mr. Ledbetter puts the count in the gun control
press conference at as high as 150 people.  The press said 100 on Wednesday,
put from the 50 or so who were there and it has jumped to a 150 by Friday.  By
next week the Vermont Press could be reporting a bigger turnout than Woodstock.
