Maine: Maine Senate Shoots Down Universal Background Checks
On Tuesday, the Maine Senate held a floor vote on LD 168, legislation that would institute a Universal Background Check law in Maine. Thanks to the strong support of NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, the bill was defeated. NRA-ILA would like to thank all lawmakers who defended the Second Amendment for law-abiding citizens in the Pine Tree State.
LD 168 would have required background checks for all private sales of firearms, including those at gun shows or resulting from advertising, with very limited exceptions. It also would have required background checks on all private sales between two parties – including friends, neighbors, and co-workers, regardless of where the sale took place. All such transfers – even if the seller knew the recipient was not a prohibited person – would have to be conducted through a federal firearm licensed dealer (FFL), with extensive federal paperwork, payment of an undetermined fee, and approval from the U.S. government.
Again, thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their lawmakers in strong opposition to this anti-gun bill.
