Maine Campus-Carry Bill Introduced

posted on April 17, 2017

Maine has become the latest state to join the fight for campus-carry rights. A new bill, titled “An Act to Enhance Safety on College and University Campuses by Allowing Firearms to be Carried on the Campuses of Public Colleges and Universities,” was introduced this week in the state legislature, where it is awaiting assignment. 

HP 949/LD 1370 would enable gun owners with a valid concealed-carry permit to bring their guns onto campus, instead of losing their rights when they cross campus boundaries. Current law allows for schools to determine campus policy regarding guns. 

Republican state Rep. Richard Cebra has expressed his support of the bill. Cebra is quoted in the University of Maine student newspaper as saying, “Gun-free zones, also known as Disarmed Victim Zones, have been shown time and time again to be magnets for bad people to do bad things to good people.”
