Gun Owners of Vermont Free Speech Forum

Some time ago, I was booted off of the Gun Owners of Vermont Facebook page by Ed Cutler, that organization's president, for speaking freely about Voluntaryist philosophy.  
 
 
More recently, Cutler actually tried -- and succeeded -- in censoring me once again in another Facebook forum that wasn't even his while I was discussing interstate firearms laws.
 
 
Somewhere in between, I'd started my own Facebook page, Vermont Free Speech Gun Talk, in order to be liberated, with others, from the authoritarian and censorious mentality of Ed Cutler.  This page existed for quite some time without much fanfare.
 
 
Just recently, on a whim, I decided to change that group's name to Gun Owners of Vermont Free Speech Forum.  This has evidently incensed Ed Cutler -- and his cohorts Eddie Garcia and Bob DePino -- to seemingly no end.  They have, to date, already tried to get Facebook to remove the page, convince its members to abandon the group...and they have even reputedly petitioned the VT Secretary of State to try and have the page shut down.  They allege that I'm attempting to "steal their trademark," while simultaneously contending that my resistance to their censorship and hatred of speech beyond their control is somehow "subverting" their efforts to fight gun control in VT.
 
I'll let you judge for yourself:

Recapping STR in Defense of Vermont Gun Freedoms

To: Rebecca Balint, Jeanette White, and Emily Long:

 

As I am unable to attend Tuesday's scheduled event in Montpelier, I thought to write all of you in advance with regard to my position on S. 6.  And let's be candid right from the outset:

 

*  It is one more in a series of relentless and unending Bloomberg-funded attempts to begin the process of dismantling Vermont's long-standing tradition of unimpeded gun freedom -- even though VT is ranked as THE safest place in America.  Even though Vermonters have consistently and repeatedly shown we DO NOT WANT more gun laws.  Even though Phil Scott -- not Sue Minter -- was elected governor.

 

*  It will do NOTHING to fight or stop crime.  You already KNOW this.

 

*  UBCs/S.6 can ONLY be implemented if a gun registry is also implemented.  The very first step -- ALWAYS -- in eliminating gun ownership altogether.  And you know THAT, too.

 

I have nothing further to say.  I would like to think you will oppose S.6, but I already know you won't. To not do so would be to turn your back on both the agenda and dogma of leftist thinking -- which none of you are about to do.

 

In closing, this 2015 essay was directed towards Ms. Balint, but the principles apply equally to all of you:
