In this age of politicization, neutral is not a color. Time to $hit or get off the pot.
Vermont is a crazy state with a lot of explicit socialism — but they are also a Constitutional Carry state, and there are not that many of those. The City Council made a bad vote, and the gun owners don’t like it.
>Deputy Chief Andy Higbee said officers will train more at the Ethan Allen Firing Range in the mean time.
A shame the Ethan Allen folks don’t put a stop to that too.
What a mess!
As much as I am all for sending of messages, I hate to see rank and file cops suffer. My experience with the police has been that most of the madness resides at the top. The guys on the beat have to put up with a lot of crap, and I don’t like seeing them penalized because the voters have elected idiots.
The PD Deputy cheif said:
“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,”
I wouldn’t let the sonsabitches on my range either, if that is their attitude.
The whole lot of Neo Europa should be purged from America. There is simply no need for those states any longer.
People don’t want to believe the police would lie at Sandy Hook, but they don’t realize cops in New England are just another leftist bloc.
Who are the people still privileged to use that shooting range?
Let them train elsewhere.
The dogs in Burlington will sleep better at night.
I think that the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club could make this even more amusing by sponsoring a fun event for “LEOs who support the 2nd Amendment”.
That is, throw a party for all the other police who show up, and not invite the Burlington PD.
The Burlington Police Department is staying out of the debate, but did release a statement.Dialogue??? The time for any dialogue is before a vote is taken, not after. The vote is a monologue - politicians vote for a ban; their subjects submit to it.
"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.
This follows a Burlington City Council vote earlier this month to ban semi-automatic rifles and large-capacity magazines.What did the cops have to say when the ban was under consideration? Did they support it?
I read this the other day, and I never get tired of reading it. Thanks for posting!
Well no, the problem is your bosses on the council decided to strangle "dialogue" by passing the stupid ordinance. Piss be upon you. May Ethan Allen Firing Range see the light and let your dog-shooters practice at the gravel pit like the rest of us.
What does Burlington need police for, anyway? Them weenies has banned all the guns!
