Five VT towns now face 2nd Amendment sanctuary activism – WPTZ

Second Amendment sanctuary movements are being proposed in five towns, in response to proposed legislation that would limit Vermonters’ gun rights.

"….Select boards in Newport Town and Irasburg have been approached by sanctuary advocates, and that arguments will be presented this week at board meetings in Barton and Holland. According to the leader of Gun Owners of Vermont, the goal of the resolutions is to create litigation that would protect gun owners' rights to bear arms. Cavendish, a town in Windsor County, has planned to vote on a nonbinding resolution to become a Second Amendment sanctuary town.

    There is already many bills in front of the Vermont State Congress that either are about gun control or have something in them about gun control as pork. I’m sure if they had a statewide vote (not just Burlington) on it they would see the majority of Vermont does not want gun control. Furthermore, they would just be unconstitutional laws. These sneaky gun Bills need to be killed now.

    Wrong. This is a purely symbolic gesture. Gun Owners of Vermont has NEVER said the goal was litigation, nor have they implied it. Please make the necessary corrections to this story.

    Vermont is one of the safest states in the country to live. Leave our gun rights alone. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!
