Constitutional Carry Progresses in Maine

Very cool.

AUGUSTA — A bill that will allow Mainers to carry a concealed handgun without a permit moved another step closer to becoming law Monday when it cleared a key vote in the House of Representatives.

The 83-62 vote increases the likelihood that Maine will join only seven states that allow individuals to carry a concealed handgun without a permit. The bill has the backing Republicans and Democrats, including 13 Democrats in the House. The bill has 96 co-sponsors, more than half the members of the Legislature, and the blessing of some members of the Republican and Democratic leadership.

Notice the bi-partisan support.

    I’m starting to wonder if either party has any backbone left. Is this a case of if you can’t bet them join them or is it really bi-partisan support. Either way, just glad to see it happen. How many states left to go?

    Why can’t everyone get on the guns in church, guns in schools , guns concealed , guns in in plain view platform ?
    Because if this is American Exceptionalism , we are a sad , scared
    Lot indeed .
    We love our Religion and guns .
    We look like fools to the rest of the world , and in these cases, they’re right

    You could just not visit Maine if it gets you that excited.

    I’m going to put Maine on my visit list now.

    our country”s desire to return to the Wild West concerns me .
    Wannabe Cowboys with small male appendages and a big compensation factor concern me .
    Maine does not concern me .
