Maine Action Needed: Anti-Gun Bill Still Looming in House

Legislative Document 351, the anti-gun bill that would allow municipalities to prohibit firearm owners from carrying during municipal public proceedings and in polling places, is still pending consideration by the full House of Representatives.  Infringing upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms at municipal proceedings and polling places would be a foot in the door for gun control advocates.  LD 351 would be the first step in eliminating Maine’s current firearms preemption law and allowing municipalities to create overbearing and burdensome gun control regulations.

It is imperative that you contact your state Representative and urge them to OPPOSE LD 351!  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Representative!

The anti-gun regulations set forth in LD 351 are the exact reason why the Maine Legislature enacted its firearms preemption law, which ensures that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.  Without “preemption” there would be a myriad of local firearm laws making compliance impossible for law-abiding gun owners.  In fact, gun owners would have difficulty even knowing about laws, much less understanding them.

Currently, individuals can lawfully carry a firearm into a polling place and other public buildings where it is not prohibited under state or federal law.  Legislative Document 351 seeks to remove one constitutional right while an individual is exercising another by prohibiting the carry of a firearm for self-defense while voting. 

LD 351 infringes upon your fundamental right to self-defense and violates Maine’s current firearm preemption law.  It is imperative that you click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Representative in opposition to LD 351!
