Daniel Banyai said he is looking for “the proper constitutional attorney” to appeal a Vermont Environmental Court order that he dismantle all structures on the property that were built without permits in the town near the New York border. He has until May 5 to appeal. “We are not going to do that,” Banyai said when asked about the order during a weekend event at the center he calls Slate Ridge Vermont. “We have not done anything wrong, we haven’t done anything illegal.” Banyai describes his property as a safe and environmentally friendly place for people to discharge their firearms.
