    Personally I think they need to deny the use of the range to all agencies, and this should be done on a state wide basis where ever our rights are being threatened. This puts the pressure on the .gov through the enforcement chain and can be another very useful tool to persuade those who presume to rule instead of govern.

    I brought this up at the last sportsman's club meeting and received a mixed reception but I will continue to bring this up and intend to start contacting other clubs in my area.

    Flame away if you want but I'm not going to sit back and presume somebody else will stand up for me.

    I have frequented the Lamoille Valley and Waterbury fish and game clubs many times while I lived in Vermont. Great clubs that rarely get involved in politics, like most of rural VT: your politics are your business. I am really glad that Lamoille stood up and said no to Burlington PD. Vermont has much bigger issues to worry about such as rampant political corruption, illegal drugs such as meth and heroin, and drunk driving. With the third lowest violent crime rates in the nation and some of the loosest gun control laws, firearms should be the last on the state's to do list.

    Given that Baruth withdrew his assault weapons ban bill last week, in the face of serious opposition in the statehouse (not to mention people pointing out that it would have violated the state constitution), I predict that Burlington will not get permission from the state to violate the preemption established in State v. Rosenthal (1903).

    They can go at it all they like, but they're swimming up a waterfall in VT.

    Not even Gov. Shumlin backs an AWB in the state.
