    Gun Owners of Maine was at the Bangor Gun Show this weekend, and we had a great time.  We got to meet even more of our friends from Facebook, our paid members and introduced ourselves to many folks for the first time.  Our raffle for the Windham Weaponry MPC AR-15 is all but sold out, as well.

    Thank you to all the volunteers who helped us man the table over the course of the show, and for everyone who stopped by to say hello.


    Nice crowd at the Bangor Gun Show

    Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Gun Owners of Maine table at the Augusta Gun Show! This was our first show, and it was great to meet so many of our friends from the Facebook group and those who have become paid members.  We sold a lot of raffle tickets for our Windham Weaponry MPC AR-15, and introduced ourselves to a lot of people for the first time.  

    In a couple of weeks, we'll be at the Bangor show on September 7 & 8. See you there!

    LD 345, Rep. Corey Wilson's Concealed Handgun Permit data confidentiality bill, was voted Ought To Pass, as amended, by the Judiciary Committee today by a 10-3 vote.  The amendment will permit the release of aggregate data while protecting individual personal information. The bill now moves back to the House and Senate for further action.

    CALL TO ACTION!

    Help us protect your privacy in Maine!
    www.gunownersofmaine.org

    What you can do:

    • 1.     Become a member and sign up for our free mailing list: Maine Alert.  The more members we have, the more influence we have upon our legislators, and the better we can lobby on your behalf! 
    • 2.     Tell your friends, we need to get everyone involved!
    • 3.     Call your elected officials right now!
    • ·        Your elected officials feel that this is not a pressing issue, let’s make sure they realize just how important it is to not make law-abiding citizens feel like criminals!  They have chosen to table the bill.  Let us show them the error of their ways!

    The concealed handgun permit privacy bill is: LD-345 Written by Corey Wilson (R-Augusta) This bill will:

    • ·         STOP people that will do anything to make your life harder, just because you choose to exercise your right!
    • ·         Protect your privacy as a law abiding firearms owner.

    1.) Email *and* call the members of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee. Politely express your support for LD-345, and urge them to vote in favor of LD-345 today! Email alone does not have the impact of a telephone call.
