Gun control not off the table after all

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Gun control legislation is not off the table in Montpelier after all.

The House bill seeks universal background checks, limits on the size of ammunition magazines and other restrictions. Lead sponsor-- Rep. Linda Waite-Simpson-- said this week the bill does not have the votes to pass and it won't be brought to the House floor. But Wednesday afternoon following a meeting with the House Speaker, Waite-Simpson said it's possible some parts of the bill can still be salvaged. The Democrat declined to talk about the issue on camera.
