Re: “The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

So I'm a year late to this article & discussion, forgive me:
I ask now though, what's the point of your exercise, exactly? Let me ask of you this, Mr. Heintz, where is your story reflecting the tragedy cigarette smoking wreaks on our state? Where is your admonishment of celebrities that pitch alcohol? Wouldn't a complete ban on cigarette sales accomplish a reduction in needless loss of life? What about a complete rewrite of laws that would prohibit alcohol sales? There are far more deaths in Vermont, and the nation as a whole, caused by cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption than there are firearm related deaths. Limousine liberals such as yourself that spew vitriolic nonsense about whatever your 'cause-of-the-day' happens to be, from the comfort of 'coffee shops, jamming out to Trey and the boys', is clearly unmotivated to achieve anything lasting in this community other than to make yourself appear relevant, and relevant, sir, you are not.
Have your opinion, Mr. Heintz, and continue to express it, but it express it fairly and in context. Don't attack one area of concern while simultaneously giving a pass to others that are just as important to your overall message. I interpret that your larger message is the health and welfare of all Vermonters, and if that is indeed the case, then the state's firearm laws are the least in need of attention at this time.
Thank you for your thought provoking article, Mr. Heintz, and keep up the writing.

Re: “Checkpoint Vermont: The Feds' Broad Reach Inside Our Borders

Border control and immigration is mostly a Federal matter. Remember Arizona during the Obama administration? Sanctuary regions only exist because the Feds haven't wanted to butt heads with state and local authorities and it was thought providing sanctuary was beneficial to law enforcement as well as protect vulnerable populations from crime.

Re: “Checkpoint Vermont: The Feds' Broad Reach Inside Our Borders

The collusion of our state law & local law enforcement with those working for the federal government is a slippery slope indeed, that doesn't get talked about nearly enough. Especially boarder enforcement working continuously so far away from the boarder & their continuous & wanton disregard of the 4th amendment. Thanks for shining a light on this issue.

The federal government knows that our individual rights are best taken away by a slow & constant erosion.
