Vermont Senator Jane Kitchell on Gun Control

Return to Gun Control Letters Page

Response from VT Senator Jane Kitchell to my email addressing my concerns about gun control and infringements upon 2nd Amendment rights:

February 3, 2013

Thank you for your e-mail regarding new gun legislation. There was a gun control bill introduced by Sen. Baruth which he withdrew  because there was so little support for it in the Vermont Senate. I did not support his bill and I would not support similar legislation. I do understand from Sen. Sears, Chair of the Judiciary Committee, that there are things that need to be done to make sure individuals with histories of mental health problems or criminal activity are reported to the national data base so that they would be identified when a background check is done. I think his committee may try to improve the reporting of individuals who should not obtain firearms. There simply does not appear to be support for broad gun control laws that would impact the thousands of law abiding Vermont gun owners.

Again, thank you for letting me know your views on this issue.

Jane Kitchell
