Maine’s Concealed Carry Rights in Jeopardy Again!

Friday, November 12, 2010

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

 

On Monday, November 15, the Portland City Council will hold a public hearing and vote to consider a resolution asking the legislature to prohibit legally-owned firearms in certain public facilities.  This resolution would be the first step in an outright attack on your concealed carry rights and the measure also defies Maine’s Constitution which states, “Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned.” 

The meeting will be held on Monday, November 15 at 5:15 P.M. in the City Council Chambers, located at 389 Congress Street in Portland.   

Please attend and make your voice heard!  Respectfully urge council members to oppose any changes to state law which would create victim zones in Maine.  Remember to tell them that crime does not stop at the front door of a public facility and the right to defend yourself and family shouldn’t either.  If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the City Council and voice your opposition to this resolution.  Contact information can be found below.
