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.

24 V.S.A. § 2295. Authority of municipal and county governments to regulate firearms, ammunition, hunting, fishing and trapping

§ 2295. Authority of municipal and county governments to regulate firearms, ammunition, hunting, fishing and trapping
Except as otherwise provided by law, no town, city or incorporated village, by ordinance, resolution or other enactment, shall directly regulate hunting, fishing and trapping or the possession, ownership, transportation, transfer, sale, purchase, carrying, licensing or registration of traps, firearms, ammunition or components of firearms or ammunition. This section shall not limit the powers conferred upon a town, city or incorporated village under section 2291(8) of this title. The provisions of this section shall supersede any inconsistent provisions of a municipal charter. (Added 1987, No. 178 (Adj. Sess.), eff. May 9, 1988.)
Section 2291(8): (8) To regulate or prohibit the use or discharge, but not possession of, firearms within the municipality or specified portions thereof, provided that an ordinance adopted under this subdivision shall be consistent with section 2295 of this title and shall not prohibit, reduce, or limit discharge at any existing sport shooting range, as that term is defined in 10 V.S.A. § 5227.

I have noted from a story on WCAX that you have chosen to politicize a tragedy to push the anti-freedom agenda of the gun grabbers. I sometimes go through Barre on my way to hunt and fish. I can promise you I will never give anyplace in Barre another dime of my money until you are thrown out of office by the voters of that city. I will also remind you that contrary to your beliefs, you have zero authority to regulate, restrict or in any other way discourage the sale or display of guns. Towns and cities may merely prohibit the discharge of firearms by ordinance. You can be certain your city will face lawsuits if you attempt to cause any trouble for legal gun owners.
