Vermont Mayor's and Gun Control Campaigns (Voting is important)

                                         Votes are Vermont Resident/Tax Payer Voice and Every Vote is Important 

The mayors of Barre, Burlington, Montpelier and Rutland have long been members of the Bloomberg's gun control group "Mayor's Against Illegal Guns"
which is a subset of another Bloomberg gun control group "Everytown for Gun Safety" which spent $77,567.90 in Vermont in its 2015 gun control campaign.
Everytown for Gun Safety registered itself with the Vermont Secretary of State as having the address: P.O. Box 4184, New York City, New York 10163.

Like or not like a candidate, should the mayors of Vermont's cities endorse a candidate in a partisan state-wide candidate for election?
This mayor's organization has long supported gun control positions and Burlington Mayor Weinberger concedes it uses tax payer dollars from the member cities

Weinberger conceded that the group is financed by small contributions from member cities, but he said those totaled no more than "in the hundreds of dollars."

Firearms Owners and Gun Rights Advocates Respond To VPR Poll

Vermont gun control advocates and the politicians who support them have pushed gun control as a top priority issue
in this election.  But, Vermonters have little interest in the issue because Vermont is consistently such a safe state.
Vermonters are concerned about the economy, a balanced state budget and their tax burden.  Vote, Vote, Vote!
Firearms Owners and Gun Rights Advocates Respond To VPR Poll

Response to Vermont Public Radio polling released October 19, 2016 – why Vermont needs no more new gun laws. On behalf of the organizations listed below:

"Lawful Vermont firearm owners should be encouraged that the poll revealed one major fact about Vermonters sentiments at this crucial moment in the 2016 election cycle. Vermont voters see no need for new gun laws. Vermont voters clearly want politicians of all stripes and at all levels of state government to concentrate on the myriad other issues at the top of their minds like taxes and the economy. Despite being provided an open question as to their priorities this year, barely 1% suggested "guns" as a top issue priority.
