Maine: State Senate to Reconsider Important Permitless Carry Legislation Tomorrow

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Today, the Maine Senate killed important permitless carry legislation, LD 660, on a party-line vote.  However, this measure will be reconsidered by the Maine Senate tomorrow, giving LD 660 another opportunity to advance in the legislative process.  If passed and enacted into law, LD 660 would allow a person who is a resident of Maine and is not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, to carry concealed without first obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP).

Please call AND e-mail the following state Senators in support of LD 660, as they will be the key votes in determining the outcome tomorrow of this vital piece of legislation:
