Maine Governor Signs Bill Outlawing Gun Registry

posted on June 14, 2017

Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage recently signed a measure outlawing gun registries in the state.

The measure, Legislative Document 9, sponsored by Republican state Rep. Patrick Corey, will prohibit a government agency or political subdivision of Maine from keeping a list or registry of privately owned firearms, or a list or registry of the owners of those firearms.

According to NRA-ILA, while federal law prohibits a universal national gun registry, there are eight states which prohibit state-level gun registries as well. Maine will be the ninth state to prohibit such a registry.
