Vermont Supreme Court Upholds Magazine Ban
« on: February 23, 2021, 01:28:53 PM »

Apparently the court sided with the judge who made the original ruling who just so happens to a member of the VSC now.
Be interesting to see if they try to take this to the SCOTUS

In 2018, the Vermont governor signed three gun control measures into law. One of those bills was a ban on any magazines over 10 rounds for rifles and 15 rounds for handguns. On February 19, the Vermont Supreme Court upheld the magazine ban as constitutional, calling it a “reasonable regulation of the right of the people to bear arms for self defense.”

Vermont Supreme Court Upholds Magazine Ban Dangerous Ruling

It’s telling that the Vermont Supreme Court chose to cite Justice John Paul Stevens’ dissent in Heller, which argued that the right to keep and bear arms was only connected to service in a militia. Even though a majority of Stevens’ colleagues disagreed with his judgment, the justices in Vermont use Stevens’ dissenting opinion as one of the primary sources for their own ruling.

The opinion goes on to say that historically, “bearing arms” was only used in conjunction with military service, again expressly ignoring what the Supreme Court has said. From the Heller opinion authored by Justice Antonin Scalia:

Apparently the media thinks this is relevant

The case before the court was State vs Misch. Max Misch is an Iraq war veteran whom the media has pegged as a “white nationalist.” He’s allegedly opposed to the LGBTQ community, Jews, and minorities, and makes no apologies for his views. He has described himself as an “internet troll.”

Unfortunately the current administration is going after magazine limits again like his buddy did before him.

As I said, if they can hold you to ten rounds, they can hold you to one.

If they can hold you to one round, they can hold you to none.
The funny thing is, people don't get mad at me because I'm wrong.  They get mad at me because I'm right.

Time to play by their rules. None whatsoever.
