Vermont Governor Signs Three Gun Restriction Bills

Cheers and boos all mixed together outside the Statehouse in Montpelier on Wednesday, as Vermont Gov. Phil Scott signed three groundbreaking gun restriction bills.

Scott’s critics had plenty to say. 

Shouts of "traitor" and other insults were heard during his remarks, but, he stood his ground.

The bills expand background checks, raises the age for purchasing a gun to 21 and also bans bump stocks. 

Scott says it was a teenager's plot to shoot up a high school in Fair Haven that sparked his decision to back the measures.
