Not AR-15, but umbrella to blame for Montpelier Capitol lockdown - WPTZ

What witnesses THOUGHT was a long gun turned out to be an umbrella - a potentially dangerous instrument in the hands of a skilled secret agent, but not reason enough to cause the afternoon-long lockdown of the Vermont Capitol District August 30. Less paramilitary, and more parapluie. 

"Instead, the report says both witnesses saw an individual enter the Department of Taxes building at 133 State Street carrying a "long, black umbrella with a wooden handle.""

    I’ve been told that it is not unusual for humans to see human faces in things like clouds, rocky out croppings, etc. but it must be horrible to go through life so scared that you see an AR everywhere you look !

    Just another screaming Liberal, again knowing nothing about a firearm.
    But they want you to lose your right to have one, even though you know
    the difference between a firearm and an umbrella ……… they know best.
