There is so much bad logic and statistical crap in today’s Brattleboro Reformer editorial that I don’t even know where to begin. And since this is a holiday weekend, I won’t. Essentially the writer is parroting Gun Sense Vermont — which is funded by former NYC Mayor Michael Blowhard. Now, Gun Sense Vermont claims they only want “universal background checks” put into law in this state. As if criminals would submit to that. But here’s their slippery slope, real agenda:
As we’ve noted before on this page, the Reformer believes it’s time for common senses gun control in Vermont. We back Gun Sense Vermont’s call to require a background check prior to the transfer of a firearm between private parties and prohibit the transfer or possession of assault weapons, 50 caliber rifles, or large capacity ammunition magazines. We also back its call to require firearms dealers or purchasers to obtain a state license and the reporting of mental health commitments or adjudications for firearm purchaser background checks. The number of firearms that may be purchased at one time should be limited and a waiting period should be imposed to purchase a firearm. We also believe, as does Gun Sense Vermont, that junk guns such as Saturday Night Specials, should be banned and local governments should be allowed to regulate firearms. Finally, a permit and training should be required for anyone who wants to carry a concealed firearm.
Oh, is that all?
