Damn, I mentioned this in another thread. It could have been my first thread!
Anyhow, here is a local news article that has a link to the letter written to the police department from the shooting range, as well as the response
from the police department.
Burlington Police Looking For New Gun Range
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.
I grew up close to Burlington (within walking distance), and I can't think of a single instance where an 'assault rifle' was used to perpetrate a
crime. Murders are so rare in Vermont that a homicide in any corner of the state is news in all parts of the state. There is a coalition of mayors who
have gotten together to discuss solving a problem that doesn't exist. I'm sad to say the mayor of my hometown is one of them. The Burlington City
Council's decision has to be approved by the state legislature before it can be made into law, and I'm fairly optimistic that it would receive a large
amount of opposition.
