NRA-ILA’s Chris W. Cox Visits Maine To Fight Question 3

posted on August 26, 2016

In a Wednesday speech to the Heritage Policy Center in Portland, Maine, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox explained the dangers of the Michael Bloomberg-backed background check initiative, on the ballot this November as Question 3.

“[Michael Bloomberg] believes he should decide everything from how big a soda you can buy to how much salt you’re allowed to have in your food to what colors are acceptable for the new roof you want to put on your home,” Cox told those gathered. “Now Bloomberg’s pouring millions into trying to make the state of Maine just like New York City when it comes to gun control.”

Cox continued: “Whether or not you own a gun, you need to know: Question 3 would be a nightmare for all of you. Because it’s an unenforceable, unfunded mandate that won’t stop a single violent criminal from getting a gun. But it will turn law-abiding citizens into accidental criminals overnight. And it will cut another chunk out of your freedom.”
