Re: “Scott Pulls State-Owned Nazi Rifle Off the Market

This is an 8mm Mauser. There are thousands of them all over this country being used for deer hunting.You can buy ammo for them in many sporting goods stores in Vermont. It seems to me to be revenge that the firearm of the third reich is used for hunting deer in the USA. In the 50’s and 60’s most towns including my home town, had an army surplus store, many of them sold these guns. My uncle brought one back from Europe as a gift for my WWI veteran grandfather. My grandfather made a mahogany stock for it as he was dying. My father, a WWII vet, hunted with that rifle until he died in 2012.

Re: “How the State of Vermont Became a Firearms Dealer

Those two rifles with the small Nazi insignia on them are 8mm Mausers with a 4 shot magazine There are thousands of these rifles that were brought back by service men after WWII and are used for deer hunting across this country. I find it fitting that the rifle of the Whermacht is being used to hunt deer in the USA. You can buy Ammunition for this gun at almost any sporting goods place in the country. Do some research Paul.

Re: “As the VTGOP Sputters, Franklin County Republicans Build a Base

While, on the surface, it's true that Franklin county had a tradition of Democratic legislators, the reality is that almost all of those "Democrats" were indistinguishable from Republicans. the idea that some mossback like Francis Howrigan was a liberal is laughable to anyone who remembers him.

Re: “Drain the Swamp? Scott Wades Into State Wetland Dispute

The wetland is non existent because he filled it in. The law is pretty clear on all of this.
