Tough new Vermont gun laws have already prevented a potential shooter from getting weapons

Just one day after Vermont's governor signed new gun control measures into law, one of the regulations has prevented a shooting plot suspect from possessing weapons.

Jack Sawyer, 18, was put under an “extreme risk protection order” by a superior court judge, saying that he poses an extreme risk of causing physical harm to himself and others and preventing him from having access to guns.

The judge was presented with evidence showing that Sawyer had made extensive plans about conducting a shooting at a nearby high school, and even had a diary he titled “Journal of an Active Shooter.”

Republican Governor Phil Scott, who signed the new restrictions into law on Wednesday, said his stance on gun control changed after he read the affidavit in the Sawyer case.
