Supreme Court hears second amendment arguments - Brattleboro Reformer

    What part of “shall not be infringed” do these people not understand? When we talk about gun violence in Vermont, I would like these gun-grabbers to quantify the numbers…how many ‘assault weapons’, and how many ‘high-capacity magazines’ have been used….EVER! We won’t hear from them, because the real numbers nullify their argument. Enough virtue signaling, already! Our constitution is there, and is valuable for a reason. Any attempt to change the constitution or nullify it should have a good AND valid reason.
