Another thread was started with information but I am afraid it may be lost because the headline looks only interesting to those involved in the local Lewiston politics. This could not be further from the truth. I have many memories of this man as he held hands with Sarah Brady and Chuck Schumer and vowed to destroy our 2nd Amendment. The former Chief Laurent Gilbert of Lewiston walks in Lock-Step with these people and it is well documented. He should NEVER attain an elected office and I doubt he would have a chance if people knew his REAL background.
Here is a link to the original thread [url=http://www.asmainegoes.com/node/11351]Original Thread Here[/url] followed by a few "snippets" from it. Maybe Scott can combine the two so this important information stays front and center where it needs to be.
[quote="Bob Stone"]The election is a year away and papers cannot be filed until next July. Lewiston City Councilor Norm Rousseau has also indicated that he plans to run.
Larry is a former Lewiston Police Chief and US Marshall. He is a dyed in the wool liberal Democrat who has championed gay rights and gun control. Rousseau is a local businessman. I expect more entrants.

[b]Is this the same Chief Laurent Gilbert who used to work with Chuck Schumer and travel and speak with Sarah Brady in favor of gun registration and gun licensing, one gun a month purchasing limits, etc?[/b] If so, here is an interesting little link to a speech made by Chuck Schumer and Sarah Brady, and attended and supported by (in an official capacity) Chief Laurent Gilbert of Lewistion Maine. He was even a speaker at this particular event on December 8, 1993 advocating these things.
We can only pray that this is not the same gun prohibitionist and if it is, to educate everyone of his alliance with these anti-gun hate groups.
Here is a link directly to the speech with Chief Gilbert named as one of the speakers. I think it will make an interesting read and should be passed around to EVERYONE possible if this is the same guy. [b]If this IS the same guy he will need more than a name change to brush this little factoid under the rug[/b]. If not.......... PHEW!
