The United States Constitution will always be challenged by someone, somewhere, somehow.
I think the 1st Article in the Vermont Constitution Is why I love Vermont
Hunting is Vermonts oldest tradition. CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF VERMONT
A DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE
STATE OF VERMONT
That all men are born equally free and independent, and have
certain natural, inherent, and unalienable rights, amongst
which are the enjoying and defending life and liberty, ac-
quiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing
and obtaining happiness and safety; therefore no person born
in this country, or brought from over sea, ought to be hold-
en by law, to serve any person as a servant, slave or ap-
prentice, after he arrives to the age of twenty-one years,
unless he is bound by his own consent, after he arrives to
such age, or bound by law for the payment of debts, damages,
fines, costs, or the like.
Article 16. [Right to bear arms; standing armies; military power subordinate to civil]
That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the
State--and as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought
not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to
and governed by the civil power.
I can go on and on about how or Why other states should observe and notice Vermonts State Hunting laws.
As recent as Oct. 29th 2007 the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources had a Press Release titled,
"Hunting is Safe and getting Safer in Vermont" < Click to View
Happy Hunting Ya'll !!!
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
