Maine Legislature Will Hear Pro-Gun Measure This Week

posted on June 19, 2017

The Maine Senate will be voting on an important pro-gun measure this week, and support of gun owners could be critical to passage.

According to a report from NRA-ILA, the Senate will consider Legislative Document 988, which 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. 

In a nutshell, this legislation would protect law-abiding gun owners from inadvertently violating the law while dropping off and picking up their children from school.
