    Default Burlington police looking for new gun range

    Hopefully we'll see gun ranges all across the country do the same.

    BURLINGTON, Vt. -A firing range has announced the Burlington Police Department is not welcome to train at its facilities any longer.

    Last week the Burlington City Council voted to ban semi-automatic rifles and large capacity magazines in the city limits.

    The chairman of the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club explained in a letter that it cannot support the city with such a prejudice against the club, and has voted to suspend the city's use of the range for law enforcement officers.

    Burlington Police Chief Michael Schirling says it will affect how and when officers train with their firearms. The weapons ban still needs to go before lawmakers and voters.

    RE: Response to the notice prohibiting use of the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club, Inc.:

    It is unfortunate that this important and much needed community dialogue regarding gun control currently under way in the City of Burlington and across the Nation has resulted in this action.
    It reads like a politician wrote it.
    "The State, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing."

    I might have to check out their club after reading this. Good for them. Ranges are few and far between in this state, so this probably will hurt the police somewhat.
