An act relating to firearms crimes and procedures

Subject: Criminal procedures; firearms
Statement of purpose of bill as introduced: This bill proposes to enact several measures related to firearms. The bill proposes:
(1) the following requirements related to firearms storage:
(A) to require that, when a firearm is not in a personís immediate possession or control, the firearm must be properly secured in such a way to render it inoperable by any person other than the owner or other lawfully authorized user and stored separately from ammunition and to set forth escalating penalties for violation of this provision based on the severity of the harm resulting from not properly securing a firearm as required by law;

[The end of self-defense in Vermont!]

(B) to require federally licensed firearms dealers to post a sign in the dealerís place of business that states the requirements for firearms storage under Vermont law and to provide firearms purchasers with written materials at the time of purchase that contain guidance for safe firearms storage;
[Most firearm manufacturers already include that, but the anti-gunners don't know anything about guns.]
(C) to impose criminal and civil liability on a person who violates Vermont safe storage requirements with respect to a firearm that is subsequently used to injure or kill another person;
[Prosecution for future crimes with stolen firearms, how Draconian of the Tyrants] and
(D) to make an appropriation for fiscal year 2024 that provides short-term funding to help Vermonters purchase safes, depositories, and other equipment for secure firearms storage;
[Take your welfare and shove it up your ass!]
(2) to permit a family or household member to file a petition for an Emergency Risk Protection Order;

[EXPANSION OF THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL RED FLAG LAW! We told you this would never end!]

(3) to require a 10-day waiting period for all firearms sales;
[End of the GUN SHOW!]
(4) to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm on premises where alcohol is licensed to be served;

[Notice it doesn't say the person has to be DRINKING, you go in to pick up your TAKE-OUT ORDER and go to JAIL!] and

(5) to prohibit possession of firearms by persons convicted of hate-motivated crimes.
[This section appears to bring the entire legal system of Vermont down on a single individual...]
