I agree in principle with everything that's been said by almost everyone. And from what's been presented about the facts, you have every right to stand on principle.
You certainly have the right to subpoena everyone remotely connected to the case, challenge the legality of the traffic stop, contest everything in the officers' reports, cross examine the prosecution's witnesses, call expert witnesses of your own to give testimony regarding Maine statutes and the Second Amendment, etc, etc, etc. And spend thousands in the process.
Or you can simply go in with a local attorney and tell your version of events to the judge in a humble and sincere fashion - and probably get a dismissal.
I didn't mean to imply that you had to literally or even figuratively kiss anybody's posterior. Many times it just boils down to having a good attitude with the judge.
But hey, it's only money........

Gentlemen, there is no point in further discussion of the jurisdiction issues in this case. Bline's friend has been charged and will have his day in court.
When his friend's case is adjudicated, Bline is free to start a new thread telling us of the outcome, if he so desires.
This thread is now closed. Thanks to all who contributed.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
