Bloomberg Probing our Defenses in the Green Mountain State

I was concerned when it looked like Bloomberg was moving in on Vermont, and trying to get some gun control momentum in the Green Mountain State. Vermont can probably best be summed up with “armed hippies.” Fortunately, even the Dems seem to be saying no. Probably the best argument Vermont has is that there’s basically no crime, so what problem are you trying to solve, exactly?

That’s not to say the threat is over. Vermont is taking in a lot of people from states that have severely curtailed the Second Amendment rights of its citizens, and that will bring anti-gun attitudes. Additionally, you never know when our opponents may find an appropriate tragedy to exploit. The fortunate thing for us is that there is no ballot in Vermont, so Bloomberg’s tactic of rounding up his fellow billionaires to outspend us 10:1 in order to sell his trojan horse to voters is not an option for him.

UPDATE: More ground prep here.

    How many of those left specifically due to curtailment? I’d say this makes the 2a a better sell in Vermont, and weakens the anti’s position.

      I hope you’re right about that, but I fear you’re wrong.

      Here in PA we get a lot of New Yorkers moving in for the cheap real estate. Once they get here they lose their freaking minds because Pennsylvania is not New York with cheap housing. Guns are a particular hot-button in many of the recent transplants that I’ve met.

        This is why we need to break everything west of the Alleghenies off from the rest of PA. One thing I’ve noticed living in Pittsburgh is that a lot of my fellow New Yorkers don’t venture this far out into the hinterland. Must be the lack of Wawas.

          Sure… throw me to the wolves ;) Or Wolf, I guess, these days.

          That strategy is untenable in the long term.

          Today you move the border 10 miles west of it’s origin, and tomorrow the same leftists will move 20 miles west of the original border and lose their minds again. Lather, rinse, repeat.

      My wife and I moved to VT because of the 2A freedoms! Well that and the fact that the taxes, schools, roads, and individual freedoms had all gone to shit in CT.

      • LoveVTfreedom says:

        Lol. Welcome :)

        And our roads and taxes haven’t gone to shit. And now they are trying take our freedom.

        At least the schools here are still good

    Vermont is nothing but white people who drive Subaru and Volvo station wagons. They’re SWPLs on stilts. There is absolutely no reason to even have police there. It’s heaven on Earth.

    I grew up in ‘Jersey and eventually moved to Vermont.

    Feel safe up here…not so in gun-free Jersey every time I visit family. I would love to bring protection when I travel through NY and NJ knowing the draconian gun laws down there are making things unsafe for me. Even taking a knife is enough to get you thrown in jail, depending on the cop’s mood.

    BTW: don’t feel too comfortable with how VT’s politicians are currently leaning. That can change in a flash depending on how they perceive it will help their careers. Everyone needs to stay alert, motivated to keep our laws the way they are, and willing to vote the garbage out of office.

    Keep up on all the gun rights activity in Vermont, here:

    All who are concerned with this should come to the State House on Tuesday January 27 from 2-7pm. Wear an article of orange clothing to show why you are there. No weapons are allowed in the State House. Be polite, be articulate. Find your legislators and tell them why you are there.

    I don’t see the problem,why would an anti gunner want to move there? Unless it were for other reasons.
