Wealthy Out-of-State Interests Announce Plan to Ban Private Gun Sales

24 Aug 2015 12:00 PM | Todd (Administrator)
On Monday, Augusta 24, 2015, famously anti-gun New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg's front organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, filed an application with the Secretary of State to place a question on Maine's November 2016 ballot which would ban private sales of firearms and usher in universal gun registration. Bloomberg succeeded in passing a similar measure in Washington State by referendum last year, and intends to use his money to first buy a place on our ballot, and then buy the votes to pass it with a massive media misinformation campaign.
Gun rights in Maine are under attack. Your help is urgently needed to defend against this very serious assault on our liberties by those who would turn us into another New York or Chicago. Don't allow it.

    How can Bloomberg place an anti-gun initiative on 'our' 2016 ballot?
    Didn't the State of Maine just pass legislation to stop this kind of thing from happening from outside influences?

      The legislation makes it more difficult for out-of-state interests to do so. Bloomberg can afford to pay to overcome difficulties.
