Maine: Committee Will Vote on Extreme Red Flag Bill Tomorrow

Gun Rights

On Tuesday, April 9th, the Joint Standing Committee on Judiciary will hold a public hearing and work session on LD 2283, also known as Speaker Talbot Ross’ Red Flag bill. This bill allows the government to strip an individual’s Second Amendment right with no due process and ignores the independent commission’s unanimous finding that the Lewiston tragedy occurred because existing laws were not enforced. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are urged to contact committee members NOW and request they oppose this extreme gun control bill. 

LD 2283 is a last-minute submission by Speaker Rachel Talbot Ross (D-Portland) to replace Maine’s Yellow Flag law with a more extreme Bloomberg-style Red Flag law. This Hail Mary attempt by anti-gun lawmakers in Augusta has prompted major push back, including Sen. Matt Harrington (R-York) calling the tactics “absurd” on the Senate floor. If passed, LD 2283 would remove protective barriers and streamline the process for government officials to strip you of your Second Amendment rights without due process. 

Please stay tuned to the NRA-ILA website and your inbox for updates as this situation progresses.
