Thread: Portland Looks to Regulate Firearms~ 11/1 Agenda

  1. NRA Statewide Alert

    Maine's Concealed Carry Rights in Jeopardy Again!

    Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!


    On Monday, November 15, the Portland City Council will hold a public hearing and vote to consider a resolution asking the legislature to prohibit legally-owned firearms in certain public facilities. This resolution would be the first step in an outright attack on your concealed carry rights and the measure also defies Maine's Constitution which states, "Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned."

    The meeting will be held on Monday, November 15 at 7:00 P.M. in the City Council Chambers, located at 389 Congress Street in Portland.

    Please attend and make your voice heard! Respectfully urge council members to oppose any changes to state law which would create victim zones in Maine. Remember to tell them that crime does not stop at the front door of a public facility and the right to defend yourself and family shouldn't either. If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the City Council and voice your opposition to this resolution. Contact information can be found below.

  3. Regarding Portland Gun Ban Legislation

    Hi Paul,

    With a Republican House, Senate and Governor, this is an exercise that is going nowhere.

  4. Portland Gun Ban resolution passed 6~1.

    Dead in the water in Augusta.

  5. "Skolnik said during Monday's hearing that no gun owner has a good reason for carrying a loaded weapon into an event at the Merrill Auditorium, the Portland Expo or the Cumberland County Civic Center."

    Now -- remember this? SOURCE


    Juvenile suspect arrested after police lock down Expo
    Police called for a lockdown at the Portland Expo during a middle school track meet at 7:30 p.m. Saturday after a witness outside reported a person wearing camouflage was pointing a gun at the building.The witness said the suspect entered a Park Avenue residence. With the help of residents, police located a juvenile and found several rifles that looked realistic but were determined to be toys. No firearms were found in the home, police said.
    The juvenile was charged with terrorizing. The Exposition building was in lockdown for about an hour.

    I was there, and felt absolutely foolish. I had a number of serviceable handguns AT HOME. I had a permit. I had none with me, and the "guards" at the expo were NOT armed. We were defenseless, and all the "guards" could / would tell us is to stay away from the glass in the lobby.

  6. Our View: Portland's gun resolution empty answer to non-issue

    Open-carry of firearms is not a public safety problem that deserves so much attention.

    One thing you can say about Portland City Council's resolution calling for a state law to ban the open carry of firearms in any publically owned facility where mass gatherings are held is that it was appropriate.

    The Council took a non-problem and responded with a non-solution.

    I feel the same way about CCW Badges.

  8. Default

    Every person in opposition spoke of Article 1 Section 16 of the Maine Constitution. Every Councilor failed to address Maine's Constitution in their opposition.

    Any sponsor of this "Resolution" will be brought up on House Ethics charges for sponsoring unconstitutional legislation. PjM

    To quote an O'Riley Auto Parts Commertial, "{SLAP** Now that's using your dipstick." Those Councilors who can't use their dipsticks instead of being one, need an O'Riley slap.

  10. Skolnik charged with criminal driving with suspended license


    PORTLAND Former Portland City Councilor Dan Skolnik faces a criminal charge of driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over Wednesday afternoon on Chestnut Street.

    An officer responding to an unrelated call saw Skolnik driving past his cruiser in a silver VW Beetle and recalled that his license had earlier been suspended. He confirmed Skolnik's license was still suspended and issued him a summons to appear in court June 13, police said.

    The summons alleges a misdemeanor crime rather than just a civil infraction because of a previous charge of operating after suspension. Skolnik also was issued tickets for driving an unregistered, uninspected and uninsured car, police said.
