    but I guess Vermont voters may conflate hunting rifles with handguns and assault rifles, the latter two of which are the ones most in need of regulation.  I was particularly surprised to see, though, that he voted in favor of the bill to restrict lawsuits against gun manufacturers.  That's not so much upholding the second amendment as it is infringing upon the first amendment, the right to petition the government for redress of grievances.  I'm sure he took a very different tack when the government granted telecom immunity in the FISA bill, when it comes to the question of can plaintiffs go to court and probably lose.  

    The study of law was certainly a strange discipline. -- Yukio Mishima
