Maine: ‘Constitutional Carry’ Bill Dies in Senate Due to Lack of Democrats Support

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Unfortunately, Thursday 3/27/14 the state Senate voted to indefinitely postpone the “Mason Permitless Carry Amendment” to Legislative Document 222 by a 19-14 vote.

Had it passed, Senator Garrett Mason’s (R-17) amendment would have provided a much-needed right-to-carry reform, creating a permitless carry exemption to allow a resident of Maine, who is not otherwise prohibited by law, from possessing a firearm to carry concealed without obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit.

The amendment came down to a party-line vote, with only one Democrat voting in favor of the measure.
