    Exclamation FIRE MISSION: MAINE - LD345 (CWP Confidentiality)

    Attn Mainers:

    The Bangor Daily News is requesting the names, addresses and birth dates of ALL Maine CWP holders under the FoAA, apparently to publish their own listing in the fashion of the Journal News in NY.

    The NRA-ILA link below has details and contact info for the Representatives and Senators who need to hear from you TODAY.

    NRA-ILA | Maine: Concealed Handgun Permit Holders at Risk

    Here's a copy of the message I sent to the listed legislators... feel free to use, modify, etc.

    <-snip->

    Dear <legislator>,

    Recently the Westchester County Journal News published an interactive map of licensed gun owners in several New York counties, providing criminals with an accurate list of defenseless homes that would be "safe" to attack. It also provided a list of homes where criminals can be sure to find and steal these legally owned firearms while the owners are at work.

    Now the Bangor Daily News is using the Freedom of Access Act to collect the names, addresses and birthdates of ALL Concealed Weapon Permits holders in the State of Maine, ostensibly to publish this information in a manner similar to the Journal News. If allowed to do this, would be criminals will certainly use this information to their advantage and the citizens of Maine , both CWP holders and non gun owners, will realize an increased risk of crime.

    I urge you to support immediate passage of LD-345, "An Act to Ensure the Confidentiality of Concealed Weapons Permit Holder Information", joining the 31 states that have already enacted Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws and the 10 other states that are pursuing such legislation this year. The people of Maine deserve no less that the protections that LD-345 will provide.

    Respectfully,

    <-snip->

    Do it today!

    Done...

    Whoppo, I also called John Tuttle the democrat for district 3 to make sure he knew which side of this would help him keep his "a" rating with the NRA. He said he would support this bill.

    UPDATE:

    Maine's Governor, also a CWP holder, submitted emergency legislation to temporarily protect the personal information of Maine's Concealed Carry Permit holders. The bill passed 129 to 11.

    Great day for us yesterday! Victory is ours!!

    Also, I spoke with David Trahan and it was just a procedural vote that got the magazine cap moved out of committee... the vote was a 6-6 tie... the chair has to vote party lines and that is how the item is sent to vote. It will get voted down, maybe not the same ratio as the CCW data but it will be down none the less!
