    Maine attempting to limit magazines ot 10 rounds?

    I did not see this in any other post, sorry if it is discussed somewhere else, if so please delete. We need to write/call our elected officials and tell them we oppose this ridiculous bill. Any thoughts on whether or not it will become law?

    Sure does, he recently stated he would veto any anti gun bill.

    isn't it possible to still become law if it has overwhelming support in the house and senate?

    It won't garner enough support for a veto override this session.

    Good to know.. Thanks! I am going to have to stock up on high capacity magazines just incase this crap passes in the future. Seriously who wants to keep reloading while shooting targets. I got a 15 round mag and was still annoyed on having to reload the magazine every minute or two.

    I think the committee/panel voted unanimously that this "ought to not pass" a few days ago.
    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    It's been very difficult to get timely reliable information about this. WGAN seems to be reporting on it often, but it's really not clear what any of the bill's status is.

    I've been getting quick updates from the Gun Owners of Maine Facebook group. There's two different ones that I've seen, but on one of them there was a man who was apparently in Augusta and posting updates to the page. It's nothing official, but I trust someone who's there more than the news.
