Open carry links

I was just wondering if anyone had any links to government or state websites that specifically outlines the legality of open carry in Maine? I would like to start exercising my right to open carry, but I want to do it completely legally. Thanks for anything you can come up with.

Laws make things illegal not legal. You won't find a statute saying you can OC. The of that statute makes it legal.

Plus you can't legally conceal a firearm even in the trunk or a gun case without a permit.
