Burlington Council to take up gun measure

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Burlington City Council will discuss a proposed gun control measure Monday night.

The proposal from Democratic councilor Norm Blais  would prohibit possession of military-style rifles and high-capacity magazines within the city.
   
Vermont law prevents cities from passing gun limiting legislation by ordinance. Blais' proposal would involve amending the city charter, a process that would require approval from voters and the legislature.
