People are surprised by Vermont's new anti-gun laws because of their reputation for having such liberal gun laws, including the first state with Constitutional carry, but when I look at the numbers I'm surprised that their gun freedoms lasted this long since turns out Vermont is one of the most Democrat controlled states in the union.  The last time Republicans had the senate in Vermont was 1995 and the last time they had the house was in 2003. And today their senate is 23 Democrats & allies and only 7 Republicans and the house is 97 Democrats & allies and only 53 Republicans. So a 1/4 of the senate and 1/3 of the house and it's been that way for decades. Plus a whole 26% more people voted for Hillary than for Trump last November with only one state having a smaller percentage of Trump voters in 2016 than Vermont, and that's Hawaii, when even California had more Trump voters than Vermont.

So either Vermont didn't have as large a gun-owning community as was thought or a lot of them were voting Democrat. A few of the reasons their gun rights lasted this long without Democrat infringements is because Vermont literally has the lowest gun-homicide rate in the country and they've never had an indiscriminate public mass shooting according to MotherJones.
