Letter: Rally for Gun Rights March 9

To the Editor:

There will be a rally put on by the nonprofit group Gun Owners of Vermont on the steps of the Statehouse in Montpelier tomorrow (March 9) from 12 to 3 p.m. This is a pro-firearm event opposing all proposed anti-gun and ammunition legislation. (A reminder that firearms are prohibited on state capital grounds.) I am attending because of anti-gun and ammunition bills currently proposed in Montpelier, and think that all citizens interested in preserving their firearm rights should be there to show their opposition.

Vermont is a great state that has very few gun laws and very little firearm-related crimes. That being said, there is no need for any new firearm laws. New gun laws would only affect law-abiding citizens, not criminals and would not make Vermont safer, as some would have you believe. For further information, go to www.gunownersofvermont.org or visit their Facebook page.
