(Stowe Reporter) The Burlington Police Department last week found itself in a crossfire between the Burlington City Council and the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club.

The club’s Morristown shooting range is no longer allowing the police department to train there because its executive board feels the city council is infringing on Second Amendment freedoms.

The Burlington City Council voted 10-3 earlier this month to direct its charter change committee to draft a ban on assault-type firearms and large-capacity magazines. The measure would reach voters by March 2014 at the earliest. It would require approval by the Vermont Legislature.
