Maybe the TV news people left something out that would make things a little more clear but the way it’s spelled out now Mayor Kiss doesn’t make a lick of sense:
“From the perspective of being mayor,” he said, “I haven’t looked at public safety in terms of whether there are initiatives we would like to take. At least an element of that is that we’ve had two recent shootings in which handguns were involved.”
Kiss said it was possible that Burlington might seek a charter change related to guns or a member of the Legislature from the city might propose a bill.
Despite the likelihood of opposition, Kiss said it was timely to talk about handguns, given the recent shootings. “We could see where that went, without prejudging the process,” Kiss said. I don’t want to be afraid of bringing up issues that are sensitive.”
He doesn’t want to be afraid of bring up issues that are sensitive? Okay then Mister Mayor, why don’t you bring up reinstating slavery? Never mind that should he start pushing for such a thing I would probably be among those looking for a clear shot to put a .30 caliber hole in his cranial vault. That is if he wasn’t almost immediately impeached and unable to get any job with a higher status than shoveling pig manure. It would make about as much sense. Vermont has one of the lowest crime rates in the country and among the most relaxed gun laws. Why would he want to change what is working well?
I have Just One Question for you Mayor Kiss.
