The Maine Legislature has sent another pro-gun bill to Governor Paul LePage for his approval.
Legislative Document 1859, introduced by state Representative Michael Shaw (D-102), “An Act to Protect Firearm Ownership during Times of Emergency,” would clarify that, during any declared state of disaster or emergency, lawfully possessed, used, carried, transferred, transported, stored or displayed firearm or ammunition cannot be seized from law-abiding citizens.
This important legislation would protect law-abiding citizens of Maine from experiencing the violation of their constitutional rights such as occurred in New Orleans, Louisiana and Greensburg, Kansas where law-abiding citizens were stripped of their firearms by overzealous government officials. In New Orleans, the NRA was forced to file a lawsuit to stop this egregious violation of rights of people who were only trying to protect their families and property.
Please e-mail Governor LePage here and urge him to sign LD 1859 into law.
