LD 267 burdens law-abiding citizens by mandating background investigations for all firearm transfers performed by occasional sellers at gun shows.
LD 380 repeals important provisions necessary to protect your inherent right to self-defense.
LD 997 bans standard capacity magazines.

Tuesday, April 9 at 1:00 p.m.
LD 265 repeals an important employee protection measure enacted in 2011, which prohibits an employer from banning an employee with a valid Permit to Carry Concealed Firearms from keeping a firearm in the employee's vehicle as long as the vehicle is locked and the firearm is not visible.
LD 1173 repeals an important self-defense measure that allows individuals who have obtained a Concealed Handgun Permit to carry a firearm in state parks and historic sites.

Wednesday, April 10 at 1:00 p.m.
LD 724 mandates the destruction of firearms used in certain crimes. This prevents law enforcement agencies from selling these firearms to licensed dealers in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition—something that would help agencies when budgets are strained.

Friday, April 12 at 10:00 a.m.
LD 189 creates an online database of individuals who hold a valid Permit to Carry Concealed Firearms. This is an arduous and costly process, and will ultimately place law-abiding citizens at risk to criminals who may target their home to steal firearms.

If you are unable to attend these public hearings and speak in opposition to these anti-gun measures, using the contact information provided below, please contact members of the Joint Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and urge them to oppose any legislation that would impede your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
