http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/09/us/vermont-assault-rifle-ban-resolution/index.html?hpt=hp_t2 I love this quote: "But most people at Monday's city council meeting spoke out against the resolution, calling it too broad and unwarranted, according to CNN affiliate WPTZ. Burlington Police Chief Michael Schirling said most gun crime in the city involves handguns, not assault weapons, WPTZ reported." in other words, the will of the people means JACK SQUAT in Vermont! but my favorite is: "He said he was not looking to keep sportsmen from hunting and people from being able to defend themselves but rather wants to make sure what happened in Newtown did not happen in his city." because, you know, it would be impossible for someone OUTSIDE THE CITY to bring in a damned howitzer and point it at the school! I'll bet they aren't even able to enforce "running with scissors" laws in that town. Over reaction will result in stupid, ineffective rules.
