The Development Review Board on Thursday heard an application to allow a home-based firearms dealer

LYNDON — The Development Review Board on Thursday heard an application to allow a home-based firearms dealer. The applicant, Travis Bailey, was quick to address public concerns. He said it would be a small, private operation serving family and friends only and selling “between zero and five guns a month.” There would be no walk-in customers, no retail counter, no signage, no inventory, and no advertising. “I want to be as low profile as possible,” he said. “Most people in town, unless they know me, won’t even know it’s going on there. He called it a “hobby” and said he required DRB permission for home sale in order to retain his federal firearms license, which allows him to purchase guns through auction. “To keep my license, I need to have the ability to resell a firearm if I needed to,” he said.
