Vermont-
The City of Burlington is continuing a pattern of stonewalling and resistance to requests for documents related to gun ordinances being enacted in spite of state preemption of firearms laws in Vermont, a coalition of firearms rights advocates is charging in an email advisory sent out this morning.


“The … latest log of withheld documents was provided to us on Tuesday,” the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs advised. “This brings to 117 the number of documents that the city has withheld from public view.”


Gun Rights Examiner readers were informed of the city’s attempts to circumvent state law and of VFSC’s statutory information request in September. Since that initial report, the city at first rejected VFSC’s request, only to then agree to make documents accessible following a second request. As a subsequent report revealed, the city’s plan is to achieve what they can get and then come back and try for more later, with the ultimate and admitted goal of ending state preemption so cities can enact whatever anti-gun edicts they wish.


“Remember, this is not the prosecution of a criminal charge or the city being a plaintiff or a defendant in a legal civil action,” VFSC reminded its supporters in this morning’s email. “This is the city denying the public the ability to see how it is going about passing a law that will result in citizens being arrested, tried for a violation of this law, facing loss of freedom and property, paying fines and incurring legal defense fees and expenses."
