just because i value my rights and you don't , yes i am hysterical that a minority fringe of communist whakos want to end my freedoms and are more concerned with the need to pointing out capital letters than their right being violated,how pathetic
people i know do not support this ending private sales of firearms. talk about infringement of our rights, this obliterates them in the most basic of terms innocent till proven guilty. the members of the legislature need to review their purpose of being in augusta. they are supposed to be protecting our rights not stomping them out. from now on they should have to pass a test to make sure they understand the constitution but the majority have probably not even read it. this is feel good legislation that probably is supported by a poll in communist portland but the leaves out the opinion of of the state. residents should not agree with this and should send their representative a scalding letter for voting for this un american unconstitutional nanny state BS.ALL sales now will have to go through a dealer be recorded in a NICS check, and wham backdoor gun registration in maine disguised as a background check bill and a new tax paid to a dealer so much for free state and uninfringed gun rights
How many of these people would be alive if they had a gun to defend themselves? more liberal biased "news". How about running an article of guns saving lives Mr.costello
The problem with liberals they always try to tell everyone how to live there lives. conservatives just want to be left alone and for everyone to mind their own business. You havent lived here for a long time maine is just fine without opinions like yours
what makes you think she wouldnt commit another. Hitler made these same points to disarm germany.
How about some real news instead of this slanted editorial of an obviously misinformed liberal antigun reporter... and you wonder why circulation is down..
maybe the govt should approve speech too! NOT TO BE INFRINGED does not mean it you approve of it. the words mean OFF LIMITS dont tread on it. the government does not allow you your rights hey are your rights.
What area was polled Portland I dont know this 79% maine people will not be swayed because people in portland dont like guns. The rest of the state does not agree with the loud mouth radical whiners and liberally slanted media. If they can restrict the 2nd amendment whats next limits on free speech guaranteed by the 1st . Each man is responsible for his own actions period. The fate of the state or the nation should not be decided because you denied me my rights so you would FEEL better. the constitution is a system of checks and balances not to be infringed by the communist and marxists that have taken over the government.
all able bodied men are militia members,no sign us just show up with your equipment to defend the CONSTUTION.
If everyone was armed america would be a very civilized place
