Communities vote on gun control measures

Posted: Updated:
STRAFFORD, Vt. -

At least five Vermont communities approved measures calling for gun control.

The votes were in response to the Sandy Hook shootings in December. A resolution was drawn up calling for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as requiring criminal background checks for every gun sold and making gun trafficking a federal crime.

Strafford, Thetford, Hartland, Norwich and Woodstock approved the resolution. Bradford defeated it, but those results are being contested. And it was tabled in Vershire. Hartford will vote on that on April 6.
