NRA Praises Vermont Superior Court Decision on Magazine Bans

Recommended Posts

Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association applauded a decision by the Vermont Superior Court yesterday to allow a lawsuit challenging the State's ban on standard capacity magazines to proceed. 

“The National Rifle Association is pleased the court has allowed law-abiding gun owners to challenge Vermont's unconstitutional ban on standard-capacity magazines,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Magazine bans do not deter criminals or improve public safety. Instead, they unconstitutionally burden the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”

 At issue in the lawsuit is one of the measures signed into law by Gov. Phil Scott on April 11, 2018 which bans the possession, sale, purchase, or transfer of long-gun magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds and handgun magazines with a capacity greater than 15. 

 “The only people impacted by this ban are the law-abiding citizens who will be forced to defend themselves, their families, and their homes from violent attack with sub-standard ammunition magazines. Wednesday’s ruling is a step in the right direction. The National Rifle Association will continue to fight for the rights of Vermonters to protect themselves,” Cox concluded.
