Restore Our Gun Rights

Dear Patriot,

Constitutional Carry (LD 660)–which would “legalize” the constitutional carrying of firearms in Maine–is currently in the Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee, and the Committee Chairs have not yet scheduled a public hearing for the bill.  Not scheduling a hearing is a way to kill bills without putting anyone on the record.

You must let all committee members know that not scheduling a hearing and having a roll call vote is the same as voting to kill the bill.

Contact the Committee Chairs immediately and urge them to schedule a hearing for Constitutional Carry (LD 660)

Currently, if you want to carry a concealed weapon in Maine, to defend yourself and your family, you need permission from the state….

Fingerprint databases.  Statist licensing schemes.  Hefty fees.  The never-ending bureaucratic application process.

Why does the state discourage law-abiding citizens from carrying a concealed firearm?

You and I both know that criminals do not ask for permission to legally carry a firearm!

These overbearing and UNCONSTITUTIONAL “regulations” and “requirements” undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time Maine’s Second Amendment supporters said, “Enough is enough!”

If you agree, I hope you’ll contact all the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and urge them to support Constitutional Carry (LD 660).

If passed, Constitutional Carry would restore the right of every law-abiding citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families - WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!

In short, if you’re legally able to own a firearm, you’re legally able to carry it.  Period.

This is the way it’s done in Alaska, Arizona, and Vermont–and most of Idaho and Montana.

And despite the hand-wringing of the gun-grabbers, the news media, and government bureaucrats, those states have not seen a rise in shootouts and vigilante justice since passing Constitutional Carry.

I know you’re not surprised.

After all, career criminals know that attacking a “victim” armed with a concealed firearm often results in early “retirement”!

One last thing–inside sources say that Sen. Garrett Mason and Rep. Aaron Libby will commit to call for a roll call vote of Constitutional Carry (LD 660).  Call them and remind them to do so.
