Maine: Private Transfer of Firearms Under Attack in Augusta!

Thursday, March 26, 2009

Please Contact the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee!

Two anti-gun bills are pending action in the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.

LD985, introduced by State Senator Nancy Sullivan (D-4), requires that a federally licensed gun dealer facilitate all sales, transfers, and loans of firearms.  Dealers could subject these transactions to a fee that cannot exceed $10.


LD814, sponsored by State Representative Anna Blodgett (D-56), requires that a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check be performed by a federally licensed gun dealer prior to the sale or transfer of a firearm at a gun show. Under this bill, gun show promoters are responsible for any failure to perform the required background check and would be subject to a fine of up to $10,000 for each failure. LD814 also requires gun show operators to post signs notifying attendees of the background check requirement.  Unlicensed sellers must be provided access to licensed dealers to undertake the required background checks.

Please contact the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose LD985 and LD814.  Contact information can be found below.
