First, I truly hope everyone is having a nice summer. It’s great to see so much energy and so many people getting out in their communities across our beautiful State. Be happy friends!
I want to be clear, I SUPPORT YOUR 2ND AMENDMENT & ARTICLE 16 CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS! Our Federal and Vermont Constitutions are paramount to me, and your rights embodied in these two scared documents are too. I will fight hard to protect and preserve them! That is why your endorsement to me as “WE THE PEOPLE” is what is driving me, my campaign for Vermont’s Lieutenant Governor, and so many other great conservative principles that I’m fighting for our rights.
I am Pro Firearm ownership, Pro-2A & Article 16, and Pro Carry, Period!
My entire life I have supported the 2A and Article 16, including my public service time as a City Aldermen in Rutland. I have written about my Pro Gun ownership in public articles, talked about it a lot on the campaign trail, I have supported it many of my speeches around the State, and my support is on my campaign literature.
I have visited 15 plus Gun Shops across Vermont and I have attended 4/5 gun shows. I adamantly proclaim my 100% support for your rights to own and carry a firearm.
In my research, I believe that some gun laws should be repealed that are currently on the books. Also, I believe that Middle and High School aged students should have the opportunity to take classes in school to learn about the ownership, use, responsibility, and the maintenance of a firearm in the curricula.
During one debate in June, they asked if I would support a law for gun owners to lock up their guns in their homes? I answered, absolutely NO. People have a constitutional right to have guns. With over 5,100 Facebook members, The “Vermont Gun Owners” group is supporting my candidacy.
My fellow Vermonters, I am Gregory Thayer, candidate for Vermont Lieutenant Governor, a Constitutional Conservative Republican, and I support your Firearm ownership, your right to own and carry a gun 24/7! Please share this truth with your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers and every gun owner you know.
Thank you, God bless you and Vermont!
Gregory M. Thayer
Candidate for Vermont Lieutenant Governor
