Tomorrow, May 27, the Maine Senate is scheduled to vote on constitutional carry legislation, Legislative Document 652. Sponsored by Senator Eric Brakey (R-Androscoggin), this NRA-backed “Constitutional/Permitless Carry” legislation would recognize the right of all residents of Maine who are not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing a firearm to carry concealed without obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP). LD 652 would also leave the current carry permitting system intact for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states.
Legislative Document 652 is under attack by anti-gun extremists such as former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who has been funneling tens of thousands of out-of-state dollars into Maine in an effort to defeat this measure. The time for action is now!
Please contact your state Senator and urge him or her to support LD 652 when it comes up for a vote tomorrow. Also, please click the above button to take action now!
