General Discussion / Re: Anyone Need Seamless Gutters? Save money...
« on: July 16, 2014, 10:56:54 AM »
My house is 2300sqft i think, but pretty basic.  Three different drip edges with gutters.  My sister and brother-inlaw had them put gutters on their 2200sqft house, and garage two years ago and think it was only $1100 or something too.  Also if you mention  you saw them at the st. albans homeshow pretty sure they give you a discount.  My price was w/o the discount.  The guy that does alot of the installs around this area is from highgate/sheldon area too I believe.

Senator Baruth is withdrawing the bill.

Great News, good way to start the week!  Must be Mr Baruth was sick of getting calls from the people that voted him into the power he thought he had.

Thor I agree with everything you say, you word it better than I do ;-)

I think it all comes down to two definitions.  "Crazy" & "Assault Weapons"  Like Thor said whatís crazy?  Whoís making the final call on who is "crazy" or "mentally ill"?  Like Thor said is it the individual that shoots every weekend and is well armed and a well practiced and experienced shooter therefore by nhibbards standard should be an individual that should have weapons?  I shoot a decent amount but I guarantee there were some people that read my first couple posts and their first thought was "wow crazy gun guy".  I disagree I think itís crazy to not have a firearm in your house for protection. I shoot enough to be good so if that situation ever arose I would feel confident not scared.  My wife and I lived on Suzie Wilson road when the Currier situation happened.  We use to walk by their house in the evenings.  Its a nice quiet peacefull neighborhood, and look what happened.  That was the final straw for me, I already owned my pistol but I went out and bought a pistol for my wife too.  She was hesitant to shoot it, it scared her.  I taught her how to use it, and how to be very safe with it.  She isn't scared anymore and is quite confident with it, and let me add sheís very good with it ;-)  Listen there is evil all around us, and I believe you owe it to yourself and your family to be able to protect yourself and your family.  Ever heard the phrase when danger is moments away law enforcement is minutes away?  I'll leave it at that.

Other definition, "assault weapon".  If they are trying to ban "assault weapons" they should be able to define it right?  So what is an assault weapon?  As Thor already posted the normal joe can't buy a full automatic firearm so thatís out of the question.  Is it the pistol grips?  I know a lot of turkey shotguns that are sold with pistol grips now. is it the firearms with a heat shield around the barrel? Is it the black firearms?  Thor it the nail on the head, itís the firearms that looks scary to the people that don't agree with firearms.

As for mandating smaller magazines.  I'm sure some of you read about the woman in Georgia recently that shot an intruder that came into her home looking for her or her kids.  She had a 5 shot revolver, shot all 5 times, hitting him 4 times (apparently sheís a decent shot).  She only had a 5 shot revolver so this doesn't necessarily pertain to her situation, but for the sake of argument letís say she had a firearm with a 5 shot magazine b/c Obama said thatís all she could have.  So she shoots all 5 times severely injuring this intruder then whoops she just realizes there are actually 2 intruders not one.  Now what?  I bet she would have wished she had at least one more round!  No body that wins a gun fight ever says "boy wish I didn't bring so much ammo".  So I ask why put these kind of restrictions on law abiding citizens when criminals aren't going to play by the same rules?  Do people actually believe by putting these restrictions out there itís going to stop criminals from using them?

I'll say just one last thing then I'll get off my soap box.  This is a free country letís keep it that way.  Full government control over everything is not a good thing and our founding fathers put certain things in place to try and protect us from just that . . . our government.

Couple quotes from a very smart man:

- When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty (Thomas Jefferson)

- The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. (Thomas Jefferson)

- My readings of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. (Thomas Jefferson)

With the utmost back to you Rod sitting around and caving and allowing the ones we vote in that are suppose to work for us, instead work their own agendas is the reason this country is in the kind of place it is.

Does the high capacity clips pertain to all firearms?  Correct me if I'm wrong again but in reading this does it say if your a have a pistol with a mag that holds more then 10 rounds you could go to jail for up to a year and/or be fined $500?  So I'd have to get new 10 round clips for my beretta!  Not gonna happen

Making it harder for Americans to own firearms, and making it so the honest can only have mags that hold so much ammo is not going to solve anything.  We do NOT have a gun problem in America, we have a society problem!    

I'm sorry but this is getting ridiculous when as a nation are we going to stand up and say no more?  Our government continues to pick away at the rights of the honest americans all while they passively let the criminals get away with murder.  Tax the hard working americans to the point they can hardly breath, but then allow millions of americans and non-americans live here while not trying to pull their weight in making this country a better place to live.

Tell you what I will do, I'll continue to go to work every day, pay my taxes, and pull my weight because thats how I was brought up.  I'll try my best to help out others in my community and try to make this place a better place to live because thats how I was raised.  But no matter what laws are put in place I'll be keeping my beretta with both 17 round clips loaded in my night stand to protect myself and my family because again thats how I was raised!  I wont stand by and let my government make me a victim of the society and culture we have created.

Can someone please dumb this down for me.  Is this article trying to say the state of vermont is trying to ban all firearms that are operated with a bolt, pump, lever, or slide action except the ones they listed?  And also trying to ban mags for pistols over 10 rounds, and over 5 rounds for other firearms?

I'm apparently not bright enough to understand the government lingo, and I just want to make sure I know the acts before I sound off

I personally don't mind them.  I see them every morning and every afternoon.  Its part of the day and age we live in now, it is what it is, like cell towers.  The people that don't like them what would you rather have?  Nuclear plants possibly damaging our environment?  Damming up the rivers and damaging the natural spawn of thousands of fish annually?  Solar panel farms?  Or continuing to be completely reliant on out of state/country power ex. HydroQuebec?

Do I love them? No   
Do I hate them? No

I guess I just except them for what they are.

General Discussion / Re: Fletcher Road Speed Limits
« on: July 26, 2012, 08:00:48 AM »
I think changing the speed limit on fletcher road aallll the way to the town line is probably a little much.  I think 40mph starting somewhere around rainvilles seems more appropriate.  If they are doing traffic studies for speed limits on fairfax roads maybe there are some other roads that should be looked at too cough cough buck hollow road cough cough.  In the first two miles of both roads there are actually more residents on Buck Hollow (74), then on Fletcher Road (69, also town garage, and the old milton bradley), and from meade rd to 104 being pretty much one long hill, cars get moving through there.  I do believe like fletcher road there is a small portion in the very beginning of buck hollow that is already 40mph but I may be mistaken.

I do agree with a previous post 40mph = 50mph which is fine as long as the sheriff that the residents of fairfax already pay to patrol the town don't make a living on locals going 48 ;-)

the real scary thing is probably 90% of the violent crime that you hear about lately is started from out of stater's.  These people from the inner cities are moving into our communities feasting on our Vermont innocence.  The days of leaving  your doors unlocked and trusting everyone is over.

I am glad to see that people are standing up for themselves and protecting themselves.  We'll see in a couple weeks if there is more to this story, if there is then the homeowner will lay in the bed he made, but if there isn't I hope this homeowner isn't charged and isn't put through the ringer too bad.  Again should this bring up the "Stand Your Ground" talk?  I'm all for it!  If someone forcibly enters your house you should be able to defend your family and property with force w/o the fear of going broke being dragged through the legal system.

Good Luck to the lady bullets tomorrow!  I hope a lot of fairfax fan make it down to Poultney.  I'm heading down to Poultney tonight to support a couple locals in the D1 game.  Should be another classic between Essex and St. Albans.
