Constitutional Carry needs your support!

Dear Patriot,

I have some good news…

State Representative Aaron Libby (R-Waterboro) has introduced Constitutional Carry again this year!

Constitutional Carry means if you can legally possess a gun for self-defense, then you can carry it without having to first beg for government permission

It was recently signed into law in Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming. And just a few miles away in Vermont, it’s ALWAYS been the concealed carry standard.

As you may recall, this bill was introduced in Maine last year.

Unfortunately Republican Representative Gary Plummer (Windham) and Republican Senator Garrett Mason (Androscoggin) killed it.

Evidently some in the Maine Legislature think your Second Amendment rights are less valid than those in Vermont.

Fortunately, Rep. Libby has re-introduced the bill again!

This year it’s LD-660, and it needs your help.

With the assault on your right to keep and bear arms moving forward in Washington, passing this important piece of legislation is more important than ever.

LD-660 by Rep. Aaron Libby would:

*** Remove the prohibition on concealing a dangerous weapon so that law-abiding citizens of Maine may carry their firearm concealed for self-defense without having to first obtain government permission;

*** Remove the prohibition on having a loaded firearm or crossbow in a motor vehicle;

*** Leave Maine’s Concealed Carry Permit system intact for those who choose to get the optional permit — for reciprocity reasons or other reasons, and;

*** Repeal the ban on discharging a firearm from your vehicle in the defense of life or property.

I have to tell you, this is the kind of thing that makes me proud to be an American.

Working in politics, not a day goes by that I don’t see some politician assaulting the freedoms of hard-working Americans.

It’s a refreshing change to see a lawmaker like Aaron Libby fight to advance and protect your gun rights.

Unfortunately, without your help, Constitutional Carry will be at the mercy of anti-gunners who would love nothing more than to kill it.

Insiders have warned me that radical left wing lawmakers — and even some Republicans — do not want to see ANY pro-gun bill pass the legislature this year.

In fact they may even move forward with anti-gun legislation instead.

But sometimes the best defense is a strong offense.

As a Maine resident and patriot, your lawmakers need to hear from you!

That’s why I need your help!

Here’s what you can do right now:

1.) Contact the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee. Urge them to schedule a hearing for Constitutional Carry — LD-660.

Insist they pass LD-660 immediately and reject any and all anti-gun legislation this session.
