Default Vermont. . . Michigan. . . Wisconsin Updates . . . . FBI Background Checks

Vermont - Governor Phil Scott held a very public signing of S. 55 on the front steps of the capitol building which bans Bump Stocks, raises age to purchase firearms, Universal Background Checks, Magazine Bans for long guns and handguns and more. Except for the ban on Bump Stocks the rest of the bill took effect upon the Governor’s signature. You can read the bill here: https://legislature.vermont.gov/asse...20Official.pdf Or at
http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/V...Bill%20S55.pdf

Michigan – Effective Immediately HB 5220 now states you can carry up to 18% Oleoresin Capsicum Sprays and they can have Ultraviolet Dyes in them. Old law only allowed 10% and no other ingredients. You can read the new statute here. http://www.legislature.mi.gov/docume...7-HCB-5220.pdf

Wisconsin - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that a permit Wisconsin issues or honors is required to carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle in Wisconsin. Wisconsin Statute 167.31
Wisconsin Legislature: 167.31 section (c) states: (c) Except as provided in sub. (4), no person may load a firearm, other than a handgun, in a vehicle or discharge a firearm or shoot a bolt or an arrow from a bow or crossbow in or from a vehicle.
(End Statute) The court stated that section was added when Wisconsin started their concealed carry permits and that it only pertained to those with a permit. Pro-Gun groups took it to the upper court when lower courts ruled against a man for carrying a loaded handgun in his glove box without a permit and the upper court agreed with the lower court rulings.

Here is a link to the FBI showing the number of Background Checks by month for the last 20 years. March 2018 set a new record for the most Checks in one month.

This particular incident is no indication at all of the world having gone mad, unless you count people doing stupid things.

These two sterling examples of American youth (we have another name for 'em down here) were firing their high-powered semi-automatic rifle in the direction of occupied dwellings. That's illegal, not to mention incredibly dumb and dangerous. That's why they were arrested, charged with wanton endangerment, and their weapon seized. I know you don't need me to tell you that rifle was going to be seized as evidence whether it was equipped with a bump stock on it or not, and it's certainly no infringement of their Second Amendment rights.

No one's Second Amendment rights were being denied them by this action.

This happened March 29th. If you read any of the several news stories about this, you'll note that the guy, an army veteran named Jerron Smith, had been arrested and charged with attempted murder before the order was signed to confiscate his weapons. He refused to relenquish his guns when law enforcement went to collect them. So they were seized...and justifiably so. He was also arrested (again) for refusing to give up his gun(s). His bail was set at $100K.

He fired shots into the back of a guy's car who was driving away from him after returning his cell phone. The man was supposedly his friend. Now news reports have to use the term "allegedly" in regards to the shots fired, but we all know those bullet holes didn't just magically appear in the other guy's car, don't we?

Smith committed a crime. Why should anyone be surprised or upset that his guns were confiscated/seized as evidence? He may or may not be convicted, but if you go outside and shoot at someone because you're mad at them, the cops are gonna take your guns away and you'll most likely get a free ride down to the jailhouse. And you'll probably stay there a while. You might or might not get your guns back.

In 2017, Smith had threatened to shoot a woman who was a passenger in a car that was in his driveway. In 2016, he threatened someone with a knife.

The guy's shown a propensity for violence, particularly with a gun on at least two occasions.

It wouldn't bother me one bit if he was never allowed to own another gun in his life.

Since no one else has said it, I'll say it:

Thanks so much for posting this information. It's nice to see these updates and links consolidated into one post instead of strung out over several different threads.
