Attn: Gun Owners - Immediate Action Needed on CCW Bill (Passed House and Senate)
Contact your state Representative Today!
This Monday, March 12, the Maine House of Representatives is expected to vote on Legislative Document 1603. This NRA-backed legislation, introduced by state Representative Dale Crafts (R-104), would allow a state employee, who has a valid permit to carry a concealed firearm, to store a firearm in his or her personal vehicle on state property as long as that vehicle is locked and the firearm is not visible.
Earlier this month, the Joint Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee majority report supported this legislation. In contrast, the Joint Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee minority report would repeal the current employee/workplace protection which was enacted last year and continue the parking lot ban for state employees.
Please call AND e-mail your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to SUPPORT the majority report on LD 1603 and OPPOSE its minority report.
Lobbyists for “big business” are still waging an aggressive campaign to defeat LD 1603; therefore your state Representative needs to hear from you now. Tell your state Representative that opponents should stop their attack on the Second Amendment by trying to micromanage the lawful contents of one’s private vehicle.
Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across Maine and urge them to also call their state Representative. Every state Representative in Maine needs to know that LD 1603 is what Maine’s law-abiding gun owners need and want to help preserve the Second Amendment.
