Maine Gun Sales Up As Permitless Carry Date Approaches

posted on August 21, 2015
With a loosening of restrictions for carrying concealed handguns coming soon, Maine residents are gearing up for the new “permitless” carry law set to go into effect this October.

According to a report on NECN.com, handgun sales are up substantially around the state as the effective date for the law, which no longer requires citizens to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm, approaches.

John Reid, owner of JT Reid’s Gun Shop in Auburn, Maine, told NECN that his gun sales are up at least 50 percent compared to last summer, and holster sales are also booming. “It’s all because of the new law,” Reid said. “More people will be carrying.”
