-- The Vermont House Fish, Wildlife & Water Resources Committee is currently considering legislation (H. 484) which could potentially ban the sale and use of virtually all ammunition in Vermont.
The bill would require the Secretary of Natural Resources to set up a program to identify and ban the distribution of certain toxic chemicals. During questioning before the House committee regarding the potential impact of H. 484, Department of Environmental Conservation Deputy Commissioner Justin Johnson said that it was foreseeable that the enactment of this legislation could outlaw the ammunition you use for hunting, plinking, or self-defense.
Following Commissioner Johnson's testimony, proponent Charity Carbine of the Vermont Public Interest Research Group (VPIRG), testified and did not challenge the commissioner's assertion that H. 484 could result in the banning of ammunition.
