In a work session for the Maine Joint Standing Committee on Judiciary, LD 1696, "An Act to Create a Civil Cause of Action for Persons Suffering Damages Arising from the Sale of Abnormally Dangerous Firearm,” was voted OUGHT NOT TO PASS. This marks a significant victory for all Mainers who support our Second Amendment rights. The bill will still move to the floor for a vote in the future, but is now positioned to fail thanks to the advocacy of gun-rights supporting Mainers.
NRA-ILA thanks all of our members and other second amendment advocates who contacted committee members to voice concern over this bill, as your input helped lead to this recommendation. The fight isn't over yet though! Please stay tuned to the NRA-ILA website and your inbox for future updates as this situation progresses.
