MAINE DUMPS CONCEAL CARRY PERMIT SCHEME: Merges With “Constitutional Carry” States

Published on July 9, 2015

Maine is tossing out their conceal carry permit law in favor of the Constitution.

AUGUSTA, Maine —Maine Gov. Paul LePage has signed a bill that will allow residents to carry a concealed handgun without obtaining a permit.

Maine will become the sixth state in the country with such a policy when the law goes into effect 90 days after lawmakers adjourn later this month.

Supporters of the bill signed Wednesday say permits are a burden on responsible gun owners and don’t prevent bad people from carrying firearms.
