Firearms training facility in crosshairs of neighbors, media, feds - VT Digger

Neighbors say they are scared of so-called “militia” activity at a Pawlet firearms training facility. Slate Ridge’s owner and supporters of the facility say the neighbors have been unfriendly and unaccepting. Public Safety Commissioner Michael Schirling says Slate Ridge hasn’t done anything illegal. Dangerous activity, or anti-gun witchhunting?

"Social media profiles of people who have trained at Slate Ridge say they are members of local militia and anti-government groups. Photos posted publicly on Slate Ridge’s Facebook page show underground bunkers full of machine guns and enormous piles of ammunition. While it is unclear whether the Facebook images were taken at Slate Ridge, federal authorities say Banyai is believed to be unlawfully in possession of a large cache of firearms and ammunition."

    Maybe they should go back to their home state, we did ok
    before they moved here……..
