This doesn't seem to have made the MSM yet, but the NRA has sent out an announcement:
Anti-Gun Legislation Voted Down by Senate
Friday, June 16, 2017
Today, the Maine Senate voted to not accept the committee report of “ought to pass” on Legislative Document 351 with a 25-10 vote. Further, they postponed their vote on Legislative Document 988 until next week. It is vital that you contact your state Senator to SUPPORT LD 988!
Legislative Document 988 (http://legislature.maine.gov/LawMakerWeb/summary.asp?ID=280063964) would provide an important exemption for the possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle on public school property, or the property of an approved private school, while dropping off, or picking up, a student. This legislation would protect law-abiding gun owners from inadvertently violating the law while dropping-off and picking-up their children from school.
BTW, the ten (10) Senators whom supported that anti-gun bill:
KATZ of Kennebec
BREEN of Cumberland
CARSON of Cumberland
CHIPMAN of Cumberland
DESCHAMBAULT of York
DION of Cumberland
LIBBY of Androscoggin
MILLETT of Cumberland
MIRAMANT of Knox
VITELLI of Sagadahoc
