Hell Yes!!

I received this in an e-mail today. I hope its legit, and i hope it spreads.

All states should adopt this standard .
If all the sissy men , liberals , do not want to do there part to keep our country free , then they must PAY up so the rest of us can keep it free .

Here's a guy that has it right!

Vermont State Representative, Fred Maslack, has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (as well as Vermont 's own Constitution) very carefully. His strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England -- and, elsewhere.Maslack 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.Maslack read the "militia" phrase of the Second Amendment as not only affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a "monopoly of force" by the government -- as well as criminals.Vermont 's constitution states explicitly that "the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State" and those persons who are "conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms" shall be required to pay such equivalent. "Clearly," says Maslack, "Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves. They should be capable of responding to any situation that may arise."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.Vermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least restrictive laws of any state. It's currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This combination of plenty of guns, and few laws regulating them, has resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation."America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards," Maslack continues. "This makes sense: there is no reason why gun owners should have to pay taxes to support police protection for people not wanting to own guns. Let them contribute their fair share and pay their own way."

If you aren't will to defend and protect, then you should pay for those who do.

For those who disagree, "Here's your sign!"

The pic didn't transfer very well, so here is the text:
