Hearing on guns canceled at Vt. Statehouse

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

There will be no hearing about guns next month at the Vermont Statehouse.

This comes after the Democratic Senate majority leader dropped his bill pushing an assault weapons ban in Vermont. Sen. Phil Baruth, D-Chittenden County, introduced the bill last week. It would have banned assault-style weapons and magazines larger than five bullets. But now Baruth says there is not enough support to pass it.

There was going to be hearing Feb. 7 at the Statehouse. But now the chair of the judiciary committee, Sen. Dick Sears, D-Bennington County, tells WCAX News he has canceled the hearing because there are no bills related to gun legislation now pending in the Senate.
