Thank you! But more action is needed!

Thank-You Vermont Sportsmen & Sportswomen!

On behalf of the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, it's member clubs and our allied organizations, I want to thank the sportswomen and sportsmen who AGAIN turned out in force to stand in solidarity and to speak out against gun laws that are un-needed in Vermont.

Estimates vary as to just how many Vermonters gave up their time and money to travel to Montpelier, but by our estimate we had approximately 1,200+ people there to state that should be No New Gun Control Laws In Vermont, which gave us better than a 10:1 advantage in turnout.  We flooded the statehouse with Orange, and we are truly a force to be reckoned with.  In point of fact, "they" ran out of speakers who had signed up to give testimony, while some of our people who signed up couldn't speak because the hearing ended at 7:30.


There are two more things we need you all to do however, please send an email with your thoughts/testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee at the address below, and please also consider contacting your own senator(s) and representatives by calling the Sargent-At-Arms.  Both are critically important and are easy to do.


Yours in Freedom and Liberty;

The Officers and Directors of the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs 






            MESSAGE:             When Vermont is consistently one of the safest states in the nation in regards to violent

crime, the legislature is wasting valuable time attempting to find a solution to a problem that does not exist here in Vermont.  Our existing laws work - No New Gun Control Laws


Talking Points for your email


·         2nd Safest State in the Nation for Violent Crime for 2016

·         Safest State in the Nation for Violent Crime for 2013-2015

·         Not a major source of guns for MA, NY or New England; VT is the 3rd Lowest source in US

·         High rate of Firearms in Households; 2nd Lowest Murder by Firearm in the US

·         Criminals will always try to evade any and all laws

·         Passing unenforceable and ineffective laws that can only negatively affect law-abiding citizens is ridiculous, and is a solution in search of a problem


ALSO:  Call The Sargent-At-Arms at (802)-828-2228

Armed with the names of your Senator(s) and Representatives, call the Sargent-At-Arms and ask that they relay a simple message to each of them:  "No New Gun Control Laws In Vermont".
