Re: “Vermont Inmate No. 144711 Is a 90-Year-Old Veteran

What kind of eldercare facility allows one of their residents to be taken out in handcuffs just for getting agitated?

Re: “Up in Arms: Bill Would Let Cops Take Guns in Domestic Violence Cases

Good Article Terry though you missed what legislative council said, that it had a "trifecta of constitutional problems."
So didn't the Defender General saying it circumvented the judicial and due process.

@Norm Blais,
How many times was your license to practice law suspended? O.o Bad advice to your client? BTW How come you didn't run again for city council?

" received overwhelming support at the polls when Burlington voters" Yea polls. Remember when California banned Marriage Equality via referendum? Hmmm ? Polls don't always lead Constitutional Laws. In Fact, they have a very poor record of Constitutional protection. That is why Vermont is a Republic.

No the NRA didn't stop your bill. Blame the "boogie man" all you want, but the legislature council did. Shall I quote the minutes?
The NRA spent roughly $7K according to the VT SEC State's office, BUT the Gun Sense VT and Everytown Spent over $254K .

17 states have laws similar. 4 have not been enforced, 3 are on judicial appeal and 5 are being challenged in court.
Yea. Due process. What do you know about it?

Re: “Up in Arms: Bill Would Let Cops Take Guns in Domestic Violence Cases

Folks may remember that such a provision to temporarily remove weapons from the domestic abuse scene was one of the measures that received overwhelming support at the polls when Burlington voters proposed such a change to its charter several years ago. This support at the polls was in the face of a significant effort by NRA-types to defeat the measure. Hopefully members of the legislature have more spine now than they did when they refused to allow the Burlington measure to become law.
