You are all basing your points on your opinions, or at best, misunderstood facts.
Briefly, one more time...
Fact: There are no gun laws in Vermont. No waiting periods, no permits. The only restrictions are that i cannot carry a firearm on federal grounds or public school property. That's federal law.
Fact: Vermont has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the nation, per capita.
Phil, trust the government?
Are you familiar with Orwell's 1984?
Think for yourself, take care of yourself, because big govt would LOVE to herd the people like sheep.
Btw, all you "city slickers" who insist there is no need for guns in civilian hands..
1. Not everyone lives in a city. Again, Vermont as an example, is the Green Mountain State
, not tge drab concrete state. I can think of only four places here that I would consider cities. That leaves a lot of rural.
2. Wildlife management. Believe it or not, human kind has made a mark on this planet, and it affects every living thing. Without hunters harvesting animals, deer being an excellent example, their population would outgrow their habitat, food would become scarce, disease would spread, and they'd suffer. Btw, are you aware there are programs to donate deer meat to shelters?
Thank hunters for their service to man, and animal kind.
3. You only speak of firearms used in defense against another armed attacker. When I was a teen in New York state, I was cornered outside my house by three large dogs that had excaped from their owners property and had worked themselves into a craze with their freedom. I was fortunate that they became distracted and instead of attacking me, turned on one of my pets, tearing it to pieces. Had I been legally allowed to carry a handgun in NY, I would have been able to stop them from hurting anything... or potentially anyone. I have four younger siblings.
So, in regards to any of the facts, or situation I've presented, what is your argument against
