  1. Concealed handgun permits up 167% in maine over 2011

    Sunday, June 24, 2012

    Editor's note: Applications for gun licenses have increased nationally and in Maine, with a growing interest by women contributing to the surge. Lewiston-based writer Jaime McLeod was among those who recently took a pistol safety class to learn more.

    Crime isn't skyrocketing. Look at the latest fbi stats.

    rdm in my city it's up 80 percent and many other cities it is in fact skyrocketing as unemployment rises so does crime
    perhaps with all the new gun owners and folks standing your ground the crooks may think twice before doing their crimes not to mention the government is our most dangerous criminal syndicate and getting worse by the day it seems
    lolz

    And Michigan just did away with the "permit to purchase" requirement. You had to get a permit from local law to purchase and take a B.S. test. Now they'll just rely on the background checks. Still need a license to carry (concealed) but this should encourage more homeowners to buy if interested.
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

  7. The main reason for this uptake is the current administration. With the fear of not being able to buy a firearm more are buying them and many are exploring carrying one.

    Excited to say we are working with some folks now in the northeast to establish an indoor range that will capitalize on the significantly under served need for a clean / safe experience.
