"Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has recently proposed a bill to register "non-gun-owners" and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.
Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm would be required to register their name, address, Social Security Number, and driver's license number with the state.
There is a legitimate government interest in knowing who is not prepared to defend the state should they be asked to do so," Maslack says."

After all, according to Pelosi, one reason her healthcare bill is so great is because it requires some of us to pick up the slack for those who refuse to. This Vermont bill just does the same thing in another area.
