74, Vermont doesn’t allow individual Towns to create their own gun laws either. Our biggest city (Burlington) passed local initiatives banning guns from anyplace that serves liquor, requiring safe gun storage, and allowing police to confiscate guns from suspected domestic abusers. Such initiatives are expressly prohibited by State law and the Legislature wouldn’t give them an exemption. It never even made it out of committee. Burlington and its surrounding communities are the part of VT that is Socialist Blue vs Libertarian Blue in the rest of the State. Fortunately the Burlington area doesn’t come close to representing a majority of the population. If they did, you might as well rename Vermont and call it North Massachusetts, or East New York. The leftists in Burlington look to those States and wish we could be more like them.
