As reported earlier, the Vermont legislature is currently considering gun control legislation, and according to an article in the Vermont Free Press, it has Vermonters dressing up like competing rallies in Ulster: Orange against the bill, green in favor. The Free Press also quotes Senate President Pro Tempore John Campbell (who shows the same dedication to civil liberties that characterized such fellow Dems as Orval Fabus and Stephen Douglas) saying “the bill would provide another tool for stopping drug dealers who possess guns in Vermont.” . . .
If the objective is to thwart drug dealers in Vermont, Mr. President, here’s a suggestion: perhaps Vermont could just make dealing in illegal narcotics against the law? Wouldn’t that be just as effective? What? It’s already been done? Oh well.
