Not perfect, but better than what we've come to expect in some jurisdictions! Maybe there is hope. The details could be interesting.
The Burlington police department website contains the following "purpose statement:"
"Our purpose and why we exist is to build trust, reduce crime, and see justice is served, while being a valuable resource to our community. To defend citizens Constitutional Rights and protect people from harm."
So perhaps they take the "defend Constitutional Rights" portion of that seriously. Or maybe that individual just was lucky to get the right LEOs on the scene. Unfortunately Burlington is one of those municipalities that continues to carry a preempted ordinance on the books:
"Except as provided in Subsection B(3), it shall be unlawful for any person to go armed with any firearm on or about his or her person within the City of Burlington, unless the firearm is both unloaded and enclosed within a carrying case."
