    Here, of course, I mean changes in regulation of gun ownership, manufacturing, concealed and open carry.

    Vermont has very lax gun use laws, doesn't it? Allowing concealed carry for children without parental consent? Do you support that, too?

      1. Be of age. In the state of Vermont, that age is 16 or older. You must be at least 16 years of age to legally purchase a gun and keep it loaded on your person in public.
      2. Obtain permission from a parent or guardian to carry a gun if you’re under the age of 16. Failure to do so may result in being deemed a delinquent child by the state.
      3. Have a clean record if purchasing a firearm. Things like felony convictions and dishonorable military discharge will show up during the federal instant check, and prohibit purchase.
      I'd make it 18, were it me. Other than that, in our state, we like our gun laws the way they are, and there is never any serious discussion about changing any of them.
      And in Vermont, we (Democrats) control both houses in the Legislature, and hold every major statewide office but one (Lt. Gov.)
