Gotta Love Vermont sometimes. Yes, we are the People’s Democratic Soviet Socialist Republic of Vermont from time to time. Okay, most of the time. But not all the time.
A shooting range in Morrisville, Vt. is no longer letting Burlington Police officers train there.
The Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club voted on the issue, saying it can no longer support a city that is threatening Constitutional freedoms.
More action such as this is exactly what needs to happen. If I were in LVFG at this juncture I would take copious notes regarding ANY interaction with Lamoille County or Morrisville or Burlington officials, especially law enforcement. If anything at all is not entirely proper and legal, I would begin building a case for harassment to go to the State’s Attorney. Because I don’t trust Law Enforcement that represents a city that legislates to infringe on my Constitutional liberties any more than I trust the city officials that do so.
This pathetic rejoinder from the Deputy Police Chief:
“It is unfortunate that this important and much-needed community dialogue regarding gun control currently under way in the city of Burlington and across the nation has resulted in this action,” writes Deputy Chief Andy Higbee.
Much-needed dialogue? Is that the part where the City Council infringes upon the rights of legal gun owners in some idiotic gesture of sympathy because of the acts of an evil man? THAT dialogue? You reap what you sow, buddy. It is very fortunate that the arbitrary, capricious, misguided, unconstitutional action of the Burlington City Council resulted in Burlington PD getting the heave-ho. Your City Council is comprised of jackasses, Deputy. That you call the Obama gun-grab “needed dialogue” makes you a bit of one, too.
I have seen how Burlington cops shoot. You better forward your mail to Ethan Allan range. And if I didn’t live a hundred miles away, and belong to three other ranges already, I would join LVFG in an instant.
