If you're looking for "I Spys," dating or LTRs, this is your scene.
If you're looking for full-on kink or group play, you'll get what you need here.
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.
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?
" he has six cosponsors in the Senate for the background check bill"
5 of those Senators are from the 6 pack which they have nothing to fear and one of those Senator's "former" lobbying firm is representing Gun Sense, no conflict there.
"Baruth pointed to a rally held last summer on the Statehouse steps as an indication of growing support. All three Democratic gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial candidates were on board, he said."
And out of those 6, only one, Dave, made it and Sue lost by 9 pts!
Vermont doesn't need UBC Phil.
Nothing to brag about Phil.
And the website is STILL up. Once BS was exposed by Paul, great job!, the best thing the VDP should have done was take it down and admit they were wrong.
Leaving it up only makes them laughable. :)
The calculation I come up with for what Hunters and Fisherman provide to the Dept is 91%, not 94%
RE Jennifer Lovett,
As an avid reader of 7-Days, I enjoy most commentary but yours caught my eye. Not for the subject but a rather bold claim.
You said, “In fact, recent studies demonstrate that 94 percent of total funding for wildlife conservation and management comes from the nonhunting public.” BIG statement there, please provide a citation of said “study”. 94%?!
As a I love to critique state budgets and spending, I am quite familiar where money comes- in and goes – out in this state.
To keep it short, here is the VT Fish and Wildlife Budget for the current, 2015 and 2014 year.
I will keep it to the rough numbers…
For the 2016 year
General Fund: 5,162,155
Federal( Pitman/Robertson/Dingal): 8,991,856
Motor Fuel; 885,000
Motorboat Reg; 200,000
In house; 197,500
Now lets break that down…..
General Fund- used to offset salaries and spending to cover “non-dept mission- work” personnel, e.g. Studies for ACT 250 Permitting Process and Wildlife impact studies.
Licenses- pretty self explanatory.
Federal( Pitman/Robertson/Dingal): excise taxes on hunting, fishing and archery equipment
Motor Fuel; goes to non-game fund along with boat launch maintenance
Motorboat Reg, goes to boat launch maintenance, can
In house and misc.- who knows.
Well crushing the numbers using what applies to the “hunting and fishing” mission, I come up with 94%!! I think your read your “study” WRONG!
If I include the “General Budget” supplement, it only lowers the value to 78.2%
So your statement is backwards.
Well we talk studies, I can provide several that says, moon is made of cheese and that the Earth is flat.
Then what is the purpose of becoming a "citizen"?
The power to vote is the most powerful and sacred right an American "Citizen" has. That is the purpose of citizenship, else there is no law.
Say it isn't so!
Do I have to take you to school again like I did for the CAP Bill 5 years ago?
Where are you getting your info? Using % to fudge the numbers AGAIN?
Here is some light reading
The Boston Globe reported on April 24, that Massachusetts is the source of 46 percent
of the handguns in Boston that were traced back to the gun's state of origin. In spite of
the extremely restrictive Massachusetts gun control laws.
