One Year Ago Vermont Gun Control Group Stated Agenda for 2015

 Saturday, May 16th the Vermont Legislature departed Montpelier. So, how did we do this year?
When you think of what the gun rights folks accomplished in 2015, remember well the Burlington Free Press 
article below from May 6, 2014.
"2015 will be the year," Ann Braden, president of Gun Sense Vermont, at a Statehouse news conference.
The group's singular focus next legislative session will be to pass a law requiring criminal background checks
for all gun transactions, she said.
"Universal background checks is our primary focus," she said.
For all of the hundreds of thousands of gun control dollars spent in Vermont, the Mandatory Background Check bill,
S.31, got dropped very quickly.
