Re: “Walters: In 2018 Governor's Campaign, Scott Sets the Fundraising Pace

Donna.. I couldn't agree more with everything you said..
We were lied to by flip-flop Phil Scott...

My father always taught us that a man is only as good as his word... guess we know where that leaves flip flops Phil Scott

If he violates the the people that fought so hard to get him elected he will violate anyone who backs him

You can never trust a liar..

We will make Keith Stern our new governor and we will have an honest man under the golden dome in Montpelier

Re: “At UVM Event, Second Amendment Advocates Decry Gun-Control Measures

Our governor is letting the people in this state down by not keeping his word to the gun owners in Vermont and by not doing anything to keep our kids safe for in the schools...

What he is attempting is to give a warm fuzzy feeling to those that are screaming out for something to happen..

What is being proposed in this state does absolutely nothing to resolve the problem of school shootings…

Re: “'Shame On You': In Milton, Pro-Gun Crowd Slams Vermont Politicians

A_Trout... you are the biggest smoke screen on this page because you and I both know that these guns you call weapons of war are no different than any other gun being sold.

If you don't understand that then you should not be up here making the ignorant statements that you continue to make.. talk about a smoke screen.. you are either ignorant about what these guns are or you just want to carry out a false narrative.

We both know that teens texting and driving are killing more people than any of these guns... we both should know because I know the fact I'm not sure you care about the facts..

My suggestion to you is go read about the actual facts before you make responses on this page.

I think the children should be allowed to speak up too.. but not until they are educated on our constitution and understand both sides of the story about guns about the facts about guns and how more guns equals less crime because that is a fact as well.

I really admire the student from Florida where the shooting took place that actually is defending the Constitution and the right to bear arms... obviously he took enough time to learn the truth

Re: “'Shame On You': In Milton, Pro-Gun Crowd Slams Vermont Politicians

A_Trout... why is it you refuse to show everyone who you are

Are you really that embarrassed by you're comments?

I asked you previously to drop the pseudo name so we know who we are talking to.

Whatever excuses you make we know the problem is drugs and what it is doing to our teenagers because of their easy access to it now and it will be even easier after marijuana legalization takes place

We know and their formative years it destroys their minds and it leads to many of the things that are taking place in America today because of drugs

We can say it is guns or knives or cars or anything we want to point the finger at but it is obvious you will never own up to the truth.

Re: “'Shame On You': In Milton, Pro-Gun Crowd Slams Vermont Politicians

If anyone that was really interested in this debate took the time to check the fax they would see that these semi-automatic rifles that they would like to call weapons of war are no such thing

It is also a fact that these rifles kill less people then teens who are texting and driving and possibly under the influence of marijuana.

Are these the same legislators that just legalized marijuana that will increase the break-ins into homes by teens who will steal guns and whatever is available to have money to go buy more marijuana putting more guns on the street in the hands of criminals..

I am saddened that these lawmakers have no common sense approach to anything and have not thought out the whole process that they have instituted that will only lead to more crime in America

It is time to get drugs out of our schools and off our streets..

No I am not saying we need to pass another law because we have passed how many laws that have not stopped the drug problem we have that is so extreme in Vermont

The common sense approach is to take the steps where they are needed and that is not by adding more gun laws or taking guns away from the hard-working law-abiding tax-paying gun owners in the safest state in the nation

The good gun owners of Vermont have offered many resolutions that offer a common sense approach to ending the violence in our schools but the gun grab lawmakers with the help of Michael Bloomberg don't want to hear them it does not fit in with their agenda

Re: “Media Note: David Moats Out at Herald, Times Argus

It was my understanding the David mounts leaned so far LEFT he fell out of his chair and could not get back up so they removed him

For years he helped to destroy the local paper that so many people grew up with and enjoyed reading until the Socialist agenda started the destruction of not only the Rutland Herald but the state of Vermont.

We now get to enjoy on a bigger scale a governor who has flip-flopped on the real issues facing the state and is now supporting destroying our constitutional rights in this state

People need to stand up and support not only the Constitution of the United States but the constitution of the great state of Vermont

Do not let the current government under the golden dome steal your rights

Re: “Vermont Senate to Debate Raising Legal Age to Buy Firearms to 21

We would not be going through all of this is Governor Phil Scott had not lied about his intentions to veto any new gun laws in the state of Vermont

I think if we are going to impose penalties on young people who are not committing crimes with guns that we must take away their rights to drive until they are 21 because the teens in the cars are the ones that are killing people not the responsible teens who own guns.

If you want to save lives take action against the teens were texting and driving and killing others don't punish the hard-working tax-paying law-abiding gun owners in Vermont.

Phil Scott you will go down in history as the most disgusting Governor we ever had and state of Vermont.

A man is only as good as his word Phil...
