What Is CAP Law For Vermont?

CAP = Child Access Prevention from firearms

CAP Law is about safe gun storage, prevention of unauthorized access by children, and protection of children from firearm mortality.

On January 21, 2011, the Vermont House introduced a bill H.83: An act relating to negligent storage of a firearm, as a result of the tragic death of Aaron, a vibrant, kind, intellignt, talented, and warm-hearted 15 year old Vermont boy.

This bill, in Aaron's memory, is similar to CAP laws that currently exist in 28 states, but not in Vermont.  This bill requires gun owners to securely store firearms at home when children are around, and proposes to make it a crime for a gun owner to negligently leave a firearm accessible to a child. 

CAP Law for Vermont is about safe gun storage, about common sense, about protecting children, and about public health.  It is not in conflict with the Second Amendment. 

Having CAP Law in Vermont will save lives of many Vermont children like Aaron's.
