This week the Maine Safety Committee will be addressing several bills. Two in particular are absurd and need our attention. Call a representative and let them know how you feel.

LD778 will eliminate all previous exemptions for who is NOT required to take a safety class in order to obtain a concealed weapon permit. It also will require all new applicants to pay more fees, take more classes, even submitting to classes to help us better understand "the moral and ethical issues facing gun ownership". :puke:

The second is LD1111. This is the result of kids in a middle school in the Portland area, while under the brainwashing direction of anti-gun groups, came up with a bill to require trigger locks on ALL guns.

I have more information here. You can read the entire text and get contact information.

In case you get to this thread before you see my other post in the "Announcement" forums, I have created a copy and paste email address CSV for the Joint Standing Committee of the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Here's the link to that list.

So now, anytime you want to contact the committee, just go there, copy the list and paste it into your emailing address window.

There was debate about this bill because it was essentially devised by a bunch of middle school kids in Portland, or course spurred on by a bunch of antis including Strimling.

Do be honest I didn't listen to the debate so I don't know what happened. Anybody got an update on this?

response

My representative responded to my e-mail today. This is what she said.."I will be watching for these bills to appear in the House and suspect that they will go down in smoke, so to speak." Sounds like some relief, even if only temporary. Does anyone have any information about what happened or is going to happen with these ludicrous bills?

Ok, quickly here's what I know according to the Maine gov site.

LD778 is still in committee - nothing yet.

LD111 says this about it, if there are any lawyers among us.
03/08/2007 - Taken from the table by the President ProTem REFERENCE to the Committee on CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SAFETY Ordered sent down forthwith for concurrence
Seems as though I might have jumped the gun here. After this action by the Senate, this action by the House.
03/13/2007 - Bill REFERRED to the Committee on CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SAFETY.
In concurrence. ORDERED SENT FORTHWITH.
So it sounds like it too is in the committee.

Can't these idiots just write: We're working on it and it should be voted on by so and so on such and such date.??? Damnit man, dispense with the gobble-dee-**** text that says to me: We're trying to do stuff so you don't know what we are doing so you won't do anything about it.

Oh, and Ethan Strimmling is an ASS!!!!!

heehee...

The vocabulary and word usage the state government uses only makes it more difficult for the average citizen to understand what the hell is going on. Not only that, but when and why something is going on, such as a bill. If I didn't belong to this forum, I wouldn't have even known they were voting on such bills as this. It's scary because it almost gives them a way to pass absurd laws without you knowing it!

You know mintmainer, that is exactly what they are hoping for. Maine isn't unlike a lot of other states but they sure have their share of those trying to slip a fast past voters.

Unfortunately they are successful too often.
