Gilbert, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- Vermont State Representative Patrick Brennan has introduced a Knife Rights requested bill H.128 that would enact Knife Law Preemption in Vermont. Rep. Brennan is Co-Chairman of the Vermont Legislative Sportsmen's Caucus.
Vermont already has pretty reasonable knife laws, but preemption prevents a patchwork of local ordinances more restrictive than state law which only serve to confuse or entrap law-abiding citizens traveling within or through the state.
Preemption ensures citizens can expect consistent enforcement of state knife laws everywhere in a state. Knife Rights has passed similar Knife Preemption Laws in Arizona, Utah, New Hampshire and Georgia and is also running Knife Law Preemption bills this year in Kansas and Tennessee.
If you live, work or travel in Vermont, please contact your Representative and ask them to support H.128. Click here to locate your Legislator and/or the Legislator who represents where you work or travel.
You Can Help Knife Rights Make a Difference
Every success we have in a state legislature helps us with the next bill we try to get passed. Success builds upon success. It's much easier to gain sponsors and supporters for a bill when we can point to other states where similar bills have passed and there has been no adverse impact. We all know these bills won't result in “blood running in the streets,” but its easier to persuade legislators when we can show them positive results to counter the scaremongers who oppose common sense legislation.
