Gun rights clash with safety concerns in Rutland

RUTLAND, Vt. -

Milton resident Joshua Severance says he was visiting his father in Rutland City and it seemed like a typical Monday. The 26-year-old was walking down Summer Street to get to his father's apartment.

"There was a cruiser sitting there parked, and it saw me. I had my firearm on my side, had my shirt off because I was hot, minding my own business just walking along, cops saw me," Severance said.

Severance says the police then stopped him and began asking him questions about the 9 millimeter semi-automatic handgun clipped to his belt. He says he was expecting questions about the gun he legally owns, but wasn't expecting to be handcuffed and detained.

While the police ran background checks, the National Guard veteran says he felt disappointed at the way he was being treated.

Why pay for a background check when you can have it done for free by simply walking down the street minding your own business?

There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.
