VT – COURTS – Reasonable limit or overly broad? High court looks at high-capacity magazine ban

For the second time in less than six months, Vermont’s highest court heard a challenge of the constitutionality of a state law banning high-capacity ammunition magazines. In June, in a criminal case, attorneys for white nationalist Max Misch argued the law should be thrown out on constitutional grounds. Prosecutors countered that lawmakers have the authority to pass laws that address public safety. On Tuesday, the Vermont Supreme Court heard arguments in a civil action brought by gun rights supporters against the authorities who enforce the law. Those arguments closely mirrored those in the earlier case. The high court is now expected to issue written decisions in both cases, though it’s not clear which case will be decided first, or if both cases will be decided at the same time. “It is the same question in both cases,” Vermont Solicitor General Benjamin Battles of the state Attorney General’s Office said Tuesday. He argued both cases in support of the law.  “It’s up to the court,” Battles said, “how they want to address whether they issue both decisions on the same day.” Vermont has a reputation for having the most permissive gun laws in the country.  Both cases before the high court focus on gun control measures approved by the Democratic-led Legislature and signed into law by Republican Gov. Phil Scott more than two years ago. Those measures came in response to an alleged school shooting plot thwarted by police in Fair Haven in early 2018.  The issue in each case is the state law limiting magazine sizes to 15 rounds for handguns and 10 rounds for long guns. The law exempted larger magazines already owned by people in Vermont, and law enforcement officers can also use them.  [full article]
