According the NRA, LD 652 has was passed the by the Maine Senate 21-14. Moves on the House.


Anyone know what the support level is in the Maine House?

Dems have a slight advantage (78-69). It may come down to getting it out of committee. An anti chairperson may be able to desk drawer veto if so inclined. But I don't know Maine politics very well.

Edit: Over half the House is a co-sponsor. It likely WILL come down to getting out of committee. http://www.pressherald.com/2015/05/28/maine-senate-votes-for-permit-free-concealed-handguns/
