    Smile How did your state do?

    Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

    VT got a 6

    "Vermont has weak gun laws that help feed the illegal gun market, allow the sale of guns without background checks and put children at risk, according to the Brady Campaign."
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    I am very surprised that VT got a 6 but FL got a 5 . PA got a 26, that was not very good .

    I sent them an e-mail explaining how proud I was of our low rating.

    Yea I'm surprised as well. I'd say anything in the single digit is a plus though!

    So, this game is like golf...the lower the score, the better.....


    We're going to have to work hard to lower the 18 VA got...

    But our VCDL leadership and members are up to the task...
