The Joint Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety is considering two anti-gun pieces of legislation. LD 1579, if enacted, would ban certain semi-automatic firearms and .50 caliber rifles commonly used for competitive shooting and other sporting purposes. The proposal also would allow law enforcement to confiscate and seize your firearms without compensation.
LD 333, would virtually eliminate the private sale of firearms at gun shows by requiring all sellers of firearms to conduct a national criminal background check on the purchaser. In fact, a federally licensed collector would be restricted from selling or transferring firearms at a gun show under this proposal.
Your legislator may be considering voting for these anti-gun measures. Please contact your legislator at (207) 287-1122 and urge him or her to oppose LD 1579 and LD 333!
