Re: “Gun Groups Sue to Strike Down Vermont's New Magazine Limits

Penelope,
Name another country that has the same constitution as the U.S. with the same rights and protections. That will answer your questions.

Re: “Woman Shot After Man Opens Fire Into Crowd Outside Burlington Bar

I love Politians and people spouting off that don't know how the criminal court works or the current state statute s or U.S. Code.
So what laws would have prevented this..
These are just his Conditions of Release(COR) which he violated:
-Not to enter any establishment with a liquor license
-Not to possess or have a firearm(s)
-Not to be under the influence of or possess alcohol
-Not to be under the influence of or possess a controlled substance
-Not to associate with other felons
-Participate in rehab.- I take it Nectars has qualified therapists.

City Ordinances, State and federal laws(to name a few) that he violated:
-Felon in possession of a firearm. F/S
-Reckless endangerment
-Public intoxication
-Assault with a deadly weapon
-Possession of a controlled substance
-Possession of narcotics
-Illegal firearm transfer, AKA "Straw purchase"
-Discharging a firearm in BTV city limits
And those are just the beginning.

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: “Senator Plans Push for Gun Bill Despite Slim Prospects

" 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.

Re: “Vermont Democrats Slam Scott's Corporate Cash, Defend Their Own

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. :)

Re: “Letters to the Editor (6/1/16)

Edit~
The calculation I come up with for what Hunters and Fisherman provide to the Dept is 91%, not 94%
