    The non-gun owners are always the first ones to call and request someone with a gun to protect them so they should pay for the privilege to have someone to respond to their needs.

    This would be awesome.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    "Liberals can decline or whine, but I will still carry and conceal mine." - Cold Warrior. Excellent quote good sir!

    That's just as idiotic as requiring gun owners to register their names and making them pay a fee.

    How about we try leaving all law abiding citizens alone?

    Nice idea. Only thing is, this is a story from 2000, and the state rep who proposed it is no longer a rep.

    Once a story is on the interwebz, it just keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    But they can't put anything on the internet that isn't true.

    I've heard this story a few times before, and while it is a somewhat ridiculous idea, it is almost explicitly authorized in the Vermont Constitution. Article 9 of the Vermont Constitution says, in its entirety:

    Article 9th. Citizens' rights and duties in the state; bearing arms; taxation
    That every member of society hath a right to be protected in the enjoyment of life, liberty, and property, and therefore is bound to contribute the member's proportion towards the expense of that protection, and yield personal service, when necessary, or an equivalent thereto, but no part of any person's property can be justly taken, or applied to public uses, without the person's own consent, or that of the Representative Body, nor can any person who is conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms, be justly compelled thereto, if such person will pay such equivalent; nor are the people bound by any law but such as they have in like manner assented to, for their common good: and previous to any law being made to raise a tax, the purpose for which it is to be raised ought to appear evident to the Legislature to be of more service to community than the money would be if not collected.
    Relevant text is bolded. However it appears the context of this article would be service in a militia, be it as a soldier or an unarmed medic. Nonetheless, I still think it would've been fantastic had the law been implemented.

    like they aren't already with people exercising personal responsibility? O:0
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
