Gun control legislation has stalled, but gun rights advocates still want their message heard.
Two gun control bills proposed in Montpelier won't be voted on this year.
Despite that, gun rights advocates started a petition and say it's important to deliver the nearly five thousand signatures to the Governor's office.
"We had spent a lot of time and energy in the last six weeks collecting all these signatures and many letters signed, and we thought we owed it to the folks that put the energy into doing that to deliver these. It's that simple, nothing more complicated," says Johnson resident William Moore.
Governor Shumlin reiterated Thursday that any gun law changes should come from the federal level in order to apply to all 50 states.
