Maine Defeats a Universal Gun Registration Bill

On Thursday, Central Maine reported that the Maine House defeated a universal gun registration bill.

This bill would have mandated background checks for all private gun sales in the state of Maine.

The 66-80 vote put the nail in the coffin for the bill in the House, while the Senate voted 16-19 for the bill on Wednesday.

A red flag bill which would allow police to confiscate firearms from people who allegedly pose a threat to themselves or others, is still up in the air.

Maine voters rejected a similar registration scheme in 2016.

Thanks to the efforts of former Senator Eric Brakey, Maine has taken a more pro-gun direction over the last 5 years.

It’s passage of Constitutional Carry in 2015 has put the state on the map as an increasingly pro-gun state.

Brakey was able to boost his political profile by passing this law, and is now rumored to be a candidate for Maine’s 2nd district in Congress.

It appears that Maine is becoming a harder state to flip for the gun control crowd.

Maine is currently ranked 29th place according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most gun friendly states in America.
