    Concealed Carry In Your Own Place Of Business

    Hello,

    After doing a lot of research on this forum and reading the Maine laws I have come to the following conclusion and would like to make sure I am understanding everything correctly.

    1. Am I correct in believing that I am legally allowed to Conceal Carry INSIDE My own house as I walk around.

    and

    2. Am i correct in believing that I am legally allowed to Conceal Carry INSIDE my own business? I own the Retail Business but I am renting the building space. The renter has no information in the lease about guns, and there are no signs posted around the building. Its basically a strip mall type building, 4 businesses in all, which all have exterior doors.


    Tank you.

    If you have a concealed carry permit, then yes. If you do not have a concealed carry permit then, since Title 25 Sec 2001-A does not have any exceptions for private property, you would not be allowed to carry concealed.

    Really? I did read the section but I would question how they can have jurisdiction inside your house? Its looney if they do.

    You can drive a car on private property without a license, no?

    Anyway, as the law is worded, it would be illegal to CC on private property (but difficult to enforce). A business, however, is not entirely private property. The public has access to it, and current case law makes it look like you don't have the same rights in your business as your home.
