A Novel Idea. Register non-gun owners

Subject: A Novel IdeaVermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S.Constitution, as well as Vermont 's own Constitution very carefully, andhis strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in NewEngland and elsewhere.Maslack recently proposed a bill to register "non-gun-owners" and requirethem 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 afee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gunMaslack read the "militia" phrase of the Second Amendment as not only affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clearmandate 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" bythe government as well as criminalsVermont 's constitution states explicitly that "the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State" and those personswho are "conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms" shall be required to "pay such equivalent." Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have aconstitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to "any situation that may arise."Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm would be requiredto register their name, address, Social Security Number, and driver'slicense number with the state."There is a legitimate government interest in knowing who is not prepared to defend the state should they be asked to doso," Maslack saysVermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the leastrestrictive laws of any state ..it's currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime ratethat is the third lowest in the nation"America is at that awkward stage.It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."This makes sense!There is no reason why gun owners should have to pay taxes to support police protection for people not wanting to own guns.Let them contribute their fair share and pay their own way.
