St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office

Vermont’s ‘taking game’ and universal background checks

Vermont took title to land for highways and railroads with court review and fair payment. It took more than the market value of thousands of Vermonters’ guns with zero court review while imposing fees and paying nothing in compensation. It took sickly Vermont pot smokers’ right to ever purchase a gun again, without paying a cent or even enduring the discomfort of providing an explanation.
