Vermont State Police: Turn in those illegal bump stocks now

Authorities are not offering to pay for the now-banned devices, but those caught with them could risk up to one year in prison and $1,000 in fines.

With Vermont’s new law banning the sale and possession of bump stock is set to go into effect Oct. 1, the State Police announced Monday that they will offer an anonymous collection program for the devices.

“In compliance with that law, the Vermont State Police will allow members of the public to voluntarily surrender their bump-fire stocks anonymously at any of the 10 VSP barracks in the state,” Capt. Timothy Clouatre said in a release. “People may turn in the devices during regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.”

The devices were outlawed in the state after lawmakers approved S.55, and sent it to Republican Gov. Phil Scott to sign in April. The sweeping anti-gun law placed a limit on magazine capacity for handguns and rifles, upped the age to buy all guns in the state to 21, and outlawed bump stocks and similar devices. Those who have the devices after the law takes effect in October will be liable to as much as a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. There is no path to legal ownership and no reimbursement program for the forfeited property.

The ban has triggered a lawsuit from state Second Amendment groups who describe the prohibition as unconstitutional when it comes to protected gun rights. Similar lawsuits have been filed in Florida and Maryland, states that have also outlawed bump fire stocks.

Or not. Rubber bands, belt loops and severed fingers also gladly accepted! :warning:

Skimmed over an article last night that MD had banned even super slick gun oil under it's bump stock ban? Anybody see anything about that?

I should feel sorry for the folks in Mass (as well as those in similar places), but I just can't work up the concern. They got what they wanted via the Ballot Box. Tough cookies.
Yep. You get what you elect.

All in the name of (being seen as) "doing something."
