Maine: Gun Shop Closure Reversed!

Gun Rights

On March 24th, Governor Janet Mills issued Executive Order No. 19 to require all non-essential businesses to close their physical locations that allow “in-person” contact. As a result, Kittery Trading Post – a gun store – was shut down as a “non-essential” business. Yesterday, freedom loving Americans scored a victory when the Governor issued Executive Order 28, accompanied by a new list of essential businesses, that deemed gun shops “essential.”

This reversal was forced by a decision over the weekend from the Trump Administration – through the Department of Homeland Security – that firearm and ammunition dealers, shooting ranges, and manufacturers are part of the nation’s critical infrastructure and should not be shut down. NRA thanks President Trump for keeping his word to protect the Second Amendment and our freedom by issuing this decision.

This is breaking and developing news, and as more details become available, we will update NRA members further. Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org/coronavirus.
