Maine Wardens Opposing Question 3

posted on October 12, 2016

The Maine Warden Service is speaking out against Question 3, the punitive Bloomberg-supported ballot initiative that would drastically expand background checks for virtually all private sales, loans or transfers of firearms.

In a statement released Tuesday, the Warden Service expressed worry that the law would make criminals out of responsible firearm owners and would be impossible to enforce. According to the Portland Press Herald, the wardens are particularly alarmed about requirements that people would have to get a background check before loaning a gun to someone else, a common practice among hunters. 

“The Warden Service also has concerns about the enforcement of Question 3,” the statement said. “It would be difficult for a law enforcement officer to prove actual ownership and where the transfer occurred unless the transfer was actually observed by the officer. A routine interaction with a hunter would not generate that line of questioning unless there was reasonable suspicion that an illegal transfer had taken place.”
