Maine: Senate Unanimously Passes Pro-Gun Bill

Yesterday the Maine Senate unanimously passed Legislative Document 9.  Sponsored by state Representative Patrick Corey (R-25), LD 9 would prohibit a government agency or political subdivision of Maine from keeping a list or registry of privately owned firearms, or a list or registry of the owners of those firearms.  While federal law prohibits a universal national gun registry, there are eight states which prohibit state-level gun registries as well.  If LD 9 is enacted, Maine would be the ninth state to prohibit a state-level gun registry.

LD 9 will now return to the House for enactment.  Stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on this bill. ​​
