Contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support the permitless carry amendment.

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  Due to inclement weather, no action was taken this week by the Maine House of Representatives to amend permitless carry (“constitutional carry”) into Legislative Document 222, a bill which addresses the issuance of concealed carry permits in Maine.

Similar to last year’s narrowly defeated Legislative Document 660, the NRA-supported amendment would create a permitless carry provision 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 (“CHP”).

Current law allows any resident who can legally own or possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in Maine where lawfully permitted.  Since law-abiding citizens are allowed to carry a firearm openly without a permit, they should not become criminals just because they put on a jacket or place their firearm in their purse or briefcase.

The state legislature will return in session next week to consider this much-needed Right-to-Carry reform legislation.  However, our opponents are working hard to defeat this amendment.  Therefore, it’s critical that you contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to support a permitless carry (“constitutional carry”) amendment to LD 222 when it comes to the House floor.

  • One User comment to “Maine: House Vote Delayed on ‘Constitutional Carry’ Reform”

    1. We need the gun owners in Maine and the NRA to help Gov LaPage get reelected. He has been a true friend to Maine gun owners and has repeatedly stood up for our gun rights. Every major newspaper in Maine is against him. They constantly publish negative articles and bias reports on him. It is clear to me the newspapers and their out of state owners/controllers are not interested in reporting facts. Their only goal is to get him out of office and bring in one of their minions. The deck has been stacked against Gov LaPage and without our support he will loose. With more and more people moving into southern Maine from other states and bringing their anti gun views with them. Maine can not afford to loose A pro gun governor. Just look at the bear hunting resolution back up on the ballot again this year. Sportsman and gun owners in Maine are under attack from out of state interests and Gov LaPage is too. We can not afford to loose his support and he can not afford to loose ours!
