ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — Vermont lawmakers are asking residents for their feedback on three bills regarding gun legislation.
The Caledonian Record reports the Senate Committee on Judiciary will host a public hearing next week on two Senate bills and one House bill.
The House bill would allow law enforcement to confiscate firearms where a person is arrested or cited for domestic assault.
One Senate bill supports a universal background check for all firearm transactions. The other Senate bill would allow police to identify a person they believe should not have a gun and petition the court to seize the firearm.
