Maine: Pro-Gun Legislation Signed by the Governor!

Yesterday, Governor Paul LePage (R) signed Legislative Document 9 into law.  Sponsored by state Representative Patrick Corey (R-25), LD 9 will 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.  Maine will be the ninth state to prohibit a state-level gun registry.

Your NRA-ILA would like to thank state Representative Patrick Corey, Governor LePage and the all state legislators who supported this bill throughout the legislative process.
