State takes Vermonter’s gun rights by recategorizing misdemeanor into felony – True North Reports

Realizing that close proximity with his ex-girlfriend wasn’t permitted, he left the grounds. However, the incident was reported and Bates was charged with violating his abuse prevention order — a misdemeanor.

    Chip, chip, away at the stone ! One gun law at a time? Hell if we let them, they’ll take them one gun, one person at a time. Don’t believe the B.S. that all they want is this or that one concession. They won’t be happy until the only ones left with the ability to protect themselves are the bad guys and the cops.
