Rabid Anti-Gun Activist Nominated to Head Department of Public Safety.
Maine – -(AmmoLand.com)- Governor Janet Mills has nominated Michael Sauschuck, the former Portland Police Chief, and long-time opponent of gun rights who served as a board member for the Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence and the Maine Gun Safety Coalition. During his time as Portland Chief of Police, Sauschuck testified in opposition to Constitutional Carry, and appeared together with national gun control advocate Gabby Giffords to support the Universal Background Check initiative rejected by voters.
Sauschuck has apparently never heard of a gun-control proposal he doesn't like, and has publicly called for:
- Banning private transfers of firearms between law-abding citizens
- Banning scary-looking so-called “assault weapons”
- Banning standard-capacity magazines
- Empowering police to confiscate firearms without due process
As Commissioner of Public Safety, he would direct the Maine State Police, the chief law enforcement agency in the state, and the largest issuer of Concealed Handgun Permits. We must show the Mills Administration that Maine gun owners will not accept a committed enemy of our gun rights as the Commissioner of Public Safety.
