Gun Control bill H.422 on the House Floor

H.422 is on the floor of the Vermont House of Representatives on Tuesday.
You can read H.422 on the House Action Calendar for Tuesday.  It is on page 383.

To oppose H.422 in the vote on the floor you can contact your legislator by calling
the Sgt-at-Arms Office at 802-828-2228 and ask to leave the polite message
"No to H.422 and all other gun control bills" for your your Representative.  

If you do not know who is your Representative, the person answering the phone will ask 
your  town/city of residence and they can tell you the name of your representative.  If you
encounter a message to call back, stay the course and keep calling.  It is worth the effort.

If you wish to send an E-mail to your Representative, you can use this link:


When H.422 passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on a 7-4 straight party vote,
it did so after after nearly two weeks of hearings proved the bill had  serious problems.  

So much so that during the hearing last Wednesday morning the comment was made
that the more the committee worked on the bill, the more problems they identified.
So, they should stop working on the bill and just vote on it.    

This commentary came from the ranks of committee members who voted to pass the H.422.

That standard of quality probably makes you glad they did not design or build school buses.
