If Burlington should pursue the proposed gun ban any further, I shall never give your city another penny of business. I am not the only person with this opinion by any stretch either.
The U.S. Supreme Court in D.C. v Heller has declared any arm in common use at the present time is protected by the Second Amendment. The arms this proposal would ban are among the most popular firearms in this country. This gun ban is unenforceable and unconstitutional. Anyone who votes for it is unworthy to hold any office in our Republic. I suggest you instead try to ban hammers, as more people are killed each year with hammers than by rifles of any kind (FBI statistics). Moreover, following the advice of Henry David Thoreau who pointed out that disobedience is the foundation of liberty, when driving up route 7, I shall continue to carry my 9mm pistol with its standard 12 round capacity magazines. I will not obey fascist nonsense.
That's not all. Barre Mayor Lauzon is trying to get a gun show to restrict so-called "assault weapons" and he wants plainclothes police to stop sales outside of the shows between private sellers. I had the following interesting exchange with him:
You are. Ask Rutland how well it went when they tried to cause problems for gunowners some years ago. They lost the lawsuit. More people are killed each year by hammers and clubs than rifles. Go down to New Jersey if you hate freedom so much.
