The City of PortLand has a few Preempted Ordinances that are still Codified under Thier Laws.
The Ordinances are: PortLand Code 17-42 through PortLand Code 17-47.
Maine Law 2011, Chapter 252-A, Part 5, of Title 25 Preempts these Ordinances.
Is The City of PortLand Aware of this?
Unless I am Mistaken..., The City of PortLand is Anti-Gun..., Correct?
Good, PortLand is NOT above State Law!

Why not take Him up on His Offer, and Sue Him, and His Department, in Court thereafter?
Besides..., Maine should Enact Remedial Collateral Consequences, Finacial and otherwise, for Preemption Violations that give so called 'Teeth' to Local Ordinances that are Inconsistent with, or otherwise or Stringent than, Maine State Law on this Regard.
Another unenforceable Portland ordinance relating to bringing firearms into cemeteries.
Sec. 7-138. Firearms, fireworks, weapons, etc., prohibited.
The bringing of firearms into any cemetery, except by a military escort, is prohibited. The discharging of, or carrying, offensive weapons of any type, or the hurling of rocks or pellets, or the discharging of fireworks therein is strictly prohibited. This is not to be construed as prohibiting ceremonial volleys with blank charges by properly supervised honor guards as a tribute to a deceased person if such ceremonial undertaking has been previously scheduled with the superintendent of cemeteries.
(Code 1968, § 502.2(b)(16); Ord. No. 591-75, § 1, 11-3-75)
Cross reference(s)--Fire prevention and protection, Ch. 10; weapons
I saw on here once about a rule prohibiting firearm possession at the airport. I have searched the forum and the code and can't find it. Does anyone know what that is?
The Augusta State Airport is owned by the State of Maine thus falls under the CAPITOL AREA RULE under the authority of the Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Capitol Police.
