and they're too damned stupid to find out if the law can even be carried out before they vote on it...
As part of a sweeping package of gun control measures that became law
this year, legislators moved to expand background checks to private gun
purchases, in addition to sales at gun shops, or through other licensed
But in a memo sent to legislators last week, the department found that
Vermont’s law enforcement agencies, unlike federally licensed firearm
dealers, are not authorized to request the FBI to run checks through its National Instant Background Check System (NICS).
Bloody stupid, ignorant bastards.
