Friday, April 8, 2011

This Monday, April 11, at 10 a.m. in room 436, the Joint Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to have public hearings on several bills of interest to Maine gun owners.  Below is a list of the bills that are scheduled to be heard.  No action is needed at this time and the NRA will keep you posted on the status of these bills.

 

LD 35, introduced by state Representative Richard Cebra (R-Naples), An Act Relating to Concealed Firearms Locked in Vehicles, would prohibit an employer from allowing an employee with a valid concealed firearms permit from keeping a firearm in the employee's vehicle as long as the vehicle is locked and the firearm is not visible.

 

LD 446, also introduced by state Representative Cebra, An Act To Allow Law Enforcement Officers from Out of State To Carry Concealed Weapons, would allow a law enforcement officer or retired law enforcement officer who is a resident of another state to carry a firearm in Maine without a permit to carry a concealed firearm.

 

LD 578, introduced by state Senator Roger Katz (R-Kennebec), An Act To Allow Municipalities To Restrict the Possession of Firearms in Certain Circumstances, would provide a municipal legislative body with the authority to adopt an ordinance that restricts the carrying of firearms in the municipality's essential municipal offices and places of legislative assembly just as the State imposes those restrictions in its capitol area.

 

LD 658, introduced by state Representative Dale Crafts (R-Lisbon), An Act To Modify the Requirement of a Permit To Carry a Concealed Weapon, would allow persons to carry concealed without a permit in certain locations.

 

LD 932, introduced by state Representative Crafts, An Act To Allow Concealed Weapons in the State House, would allow a person with a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm to carry a concealed firearm in the State House.

 

LD 1176, introduced by state Representative Cebra,  An Act To Enhance Reciprocity Agreements Regarding Permits To Carry Concealed Firearms, would allow reciprocity with more states by removing the requirement that an applicant for a concealed firearms permit demonstrate that the applicant is of "good moral character."

 

LD 1232, introduced by state Representative Aaron Libby (R-Waterboro), An Act To Enhance Self-defense by Removing Restrictions on the Carrying and Use of Weapons, would allow a person who is legally allowed to own and possess a firearm to carry concealed without having a concealed carry permit.

 

LD 1347, introduced by state Representative Cebra, An Act Relating to Locations where Concealed Weapons May Be Carried, would eliminate the prohibition on concealed carry permit holders carrying a concealed firearm in state parks and historic sites, premises licensed for the consumption of alcohol, state property under the jurisdiction of the Department of Public Safety and the Legislative Council.
