Re: “Senator Plans Push for Gun Bill Despite Slim Prospects

From his political safe space in Chittenden County, again Professor Baruth sets forth to harass gun owners and take us away from our homes and families to defend our rights against his attacks.
Philip Baruth, you are a bully and a coward.

Re: “A 'Witch-In' Targets Trump [SIV465]

I bet not ONE of these women is a Wiccan. We. Do. Not. HEX. If we did, I'd hex these hags for defaming my religion. I resent this, and not just a little bit - and shame on you, Seven Days, for promoting this bigoted crap.

Re: “Shumlin Announces He Won't Seek Reelection in 2016

Re: “House Panel Smacks Down Burlington Gun Rules

And nowhere - NOWHERE - in this article is it pointed out that these proposals not only violate, but declare Burlington to be exempt from, state law.
Pretty sloppy reporting, if you ask me.

Re: “Burlington's Gun-Control Charter Changes Unlikely to Pass in Legislature

" A 1988 state law prohibits municipalities from regulating firearms 'except as otherwise provided by law.' "

Which is the ACTUAL intent of these proposed charter changes: to attack that very law. Read the bills. The first sentence of each declares Burlington to be exempt from that state law.

Sorry, no.

Re: “Long Shot: A Mother of Two Keeps the Gun Debate Alive

Egmatic, I'd need to see a cite on that 45%. Not buying that; I say it's a lot more. Just like the money GunSenseVT put into this nonsense is a lot more than the national NRA, who basically did NOTHING here but send a guy named Darin Goens to sit and watch, and shoot off his mouth at exactly the wrong time.

Re: “Long Shot: A Mother of Two Keeps the Gun Debate Alive

"After the initial Statehouse meeting, Braden said, "The bullying really started ratcheting up."

No, Ann, YOU are the bully. YOU started this. YOU are the one who began with a laundry list of attacks on the rights of good and decent Vermonters. We haven't forgotten Burlington, and we do not need or want your "help."

"She also endured being called a liar, an out-of-state interloper and a gun grabber who won't rest until she has confiscated every last firearm."

You're being called those things, Ann, because they are true.

This, however:

"Braden said she has no interest in confiscating guns. 'I'm not anti-gun,' she said."

is a lie.
