Second Amendment

Proposed Gun Restrictions Spur Firing Range To Ban Police

Go practice someplace else, control freaks


A gun range has banned a Vermont police department from training there in protest to the city council drafting legislation to ban assault-style firearms.

The Stowe Reporter reports that the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club decided to ban the Burlington Police Department because the executive board feels that the Burlington City Council wants to take away their Second Amendment rights.

We "can no longer support the City of Burlington with such a prejudice against our club and its members, and has voted to suspend the City's use of our range for its law enforcement. This action is effective immediately," Robert Boivin, chairman of the club's executive board, wrote in a letter, according to the Reporter.

  1. Ha,Ha, FU Pigs.

  2. There’s a SWAT raid in their future.

  3. I do not see the problem with what they have done. I think the biggest thing we need to realize about the 2nd amendment is it does not allow for a double standard as We the people are the people of the US not servants of politicians and officials. What I mean to say is that a ban on weapons for civilians but not cops or politicians will be defeated if challenged to the Supreme Court level. It will be contested that the government is putting themselves in a position to suppress civilians an put them in a situation where the government can overrun them and we will not be able to defend against tyranny.
