Re: “Vermont House Backs Sweeping Gun Legislation

@Bob Frazier, I did some sleuthing, it took me a while but I narrowed it down to the most likely option. Stuarts said it happened in her first year at the Statehouse, and I found this news article which matches the location (Brattleboro) and the timeframe. "...the death of Leah Short, 16, a Brattleboro Union High School sophomore who shot herself with a type of gun that has not been specified by police." (Source: https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/aiming…) I'm still trying to look for more info, but I can't find much more than this.

There are two possible scenarios that I can think of. Either she bought the gun herself, (which at 16 you could do), or there was a gun in the house that she gained access to. If it was the first scenario, then this bill would have helped her, because she wouldn't have been able to buy one. But if it was the second scenario, then this bill would not have helped her, as she would have obtained the gun in her own house, and this bill isn't regulating guns within a family

Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

It's insulting that Governor Scott believes that by legalizing marijuana people will just start driving around smoking with their kids in the car... that's already illegal Mr. Scott. The vast majority of Vermonters are responsible with this drug, using it in the privacy of their own homes. No one's asking to legalize it so they can ride around stoned out of their minds, especially with their own children in the car.

You ask for a roadside test that simply does not exist, and that other legal states have found no issue with.

Vermont has had one of the highest prevalences of drug use in the country among younger age cohorts long before marijuana was even decriminalized here. You say you're concerned about the children, yet youth drug use has been shown to decrease in states that have legalized.

Your policy decisions are not based off of reality. I did not vote for you and I do not plan to next year.
