Maine Senate Passes Bill To Outlaw Gun Registries

posted on June 10, 2017

While history is full of warnings about the dangers of gun registration, over the past several years Americans have watched as firearm-registry laws have been passed within our own borders. After these registries enabled California lawmakers to realize their goals of confiscation, is it any wonder that some states, led by more freedom-minded lawmakers, have chosen to go in the other direction?

The latest example is Maine, where Legislative Document 9 just passed unanimously in the state Senate. Sponsored by Republican state Rep. Patrick Corey, this bill would outlaw the establishment of a list of firearms, or a list of firearm owners, by any government or political subdivision of the state of Maine. Since nationwide registries are already prohibited by federal law, LD 9 would give Mainers the reassurance of knowing their rights, including the right to privacy, are protected at every level.

LD 9 now returns to the Maine House. We will keep you up to date on this measure as it progresses.
