Mandatory Training Legislation Still Looming in Maine Legislature!

Friday, March 23, 2007


Legislative Document 778, introduced by State Senator Karl Turner (Cumberland-R) still looms in the legislature.  This measure would require all new applicants and renewing holders of a Right-to-Carry permit show documentation they have completed a firearms safety course that includes at least 6 hours of course work!  This bill also removes exemptions to current handgun safety course requirements for an applicant or holder of a Right-to-Carry permit who can personally demonstrate knowledge of the subject matter of the course requirements and also a person who received basic firearms training as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States!  

The following legislators have signed onto this measure:  State Representative Patrick Flood (R- Winthrop), State Senator Ethan Strimling (D-Cumberland), and State Representative Richard Woodbury (U-Yarmouth).
