On Monday, April 26, the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee will hold a public hearing on Legislative Document 1138, which strengthens Mainers’ fundamental right to self-defense. Please act now! Contact members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and ask them to SUPPORT LD 1138.
Legislative Document 1138 would strengthen Mainers’ fundamental right to self-defense anywhere they are legally allowed to be. Victims of violent crime who respond with defensive force while protecting themselves or their loved ones should not have to face the additional threat of criminal or civil prosecution. If enacted, law-abiding citizens would no longer be required to retreat before defending themselves.
Again, please contact members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and ask them to SUPPORT LD 1138. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are also encouraged to testify or submit written testimony. You must be signed-up to testify remotely, 30 minutes prior to the start of the hearing.
