WCAX Reports:

Less than a week after proposing a gun control bill that would have banned assault weapons and high-capacity magazines statewide, Vermont's Senate Majority Leader says he's now planning to withdraw that bill.

State Senator Phil Baruth tells Seven Days Newspaper that it's "painfully clear...that little support exists in the Statehouse for this sort of bill."

His statement comes just a day after hundreds of gun rights activists rallied at the Statehouse in opposition to his proposal.

That is good news, but the Rutland Herald article said they are still going after magazines and background checks.

Sounds like the high cap provision is there for bargaining room only.

God I hate politicians.
