Maine: Efforts Being Mounted to Have Park Carry Prohibition Reconsidered in Committee!

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

Efforts are underway to have LD1737 reconsidered by the Joint Standing Committee on Criminal Justice.  

The federal law, which allows the carrying of firearms in National Parks, went into effect earlier this week.  If enacted, LD1737 would nullify this important federal law within Acadia National Park, by disarming potential crime victims.  This bill also defies Maine’s Constitution which states, “Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned.” 

Please contact the members of the Joint Standing Committee on Criminal Justice as well as your State Representative and State Senator TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose LD1737.  Remember to tell them that crime does not stop at the park gate and the right to defend yourself and family shouldn’t either!  Contact
information for the committee can be found below.  To find contact information for your State Representative and State Senator, please click here.
