    Vermont to Register Non-Gun Owners?

    [ame=http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d7b_1256904760]LiveLeak.com - Vermont to Register Non-Gun Owners?[/ame]

    Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont ’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some More..eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

    Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state.

    Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.

    Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals
    Hahah. Of course, I don't really agree with databasing and registering...well most anyone. So I really wouldn't support something like this. But I like the idea of it, makes me laugh. Why should the gun owners be the one's to register, we're just exercising a right. It's much better to register non-gun owners as they're the one's refusing to do their duty to the Republic and will be useless in a zombie fight.

    Umm...I also don't know why there's a video with that link, there's other links

    That is fricken hilarious. I love it!

    I especially love this:

    This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime rate
    that is the third lowest in the nation.

    Yeah...could also be that Vermont is one large suburb and there is not really 'any' crime to commit. You'd have to be seriously desperate to A) make the necessary drive to rob anything of value in Vermont or B) just plain dumb. It's kind of like how Nebraska isn't exactly known for murders. There's really nobody to kill.

    What would be the purpose in registering non-gun owners? So that when your non-gun isn't found at the scene of the crime, the cops will know you're innocent?

    I can't. This is important.
    What?

    And why does the state (or the public) have a compelling interest in that information?
