Maine: Firearm Liability Work Session Thursday – Email the Committee Today

Gun-control advocates are constantly seeking ways to destroy our firearms freedom. Legislative Document 1696 is another gun-control bill blaming the law-abiding for violent crime and disintegrating communities. LD 1696 creates a cause of action against the firearm industry for selling products “abnormally dangerous and likely to create an unreasonable risk of harm.” This bill stacks the deck against the firearm industry, and trial attorneys are on standby to bankrupt the industry.

This is gun-control extremism at its very worst. Anti-gun fanatics know that if they can’t ban law-abiding citizens from owning firearms, they can still sue the industry into oblivion with laws like these on the books.

On Thursday, May 25, at 1:30 p.m., in room 438, the Joint Judiciary Committee has scheduled LD 1696 for a work session and possible vote. Please use our Take Action button to email the committee urging them to OPPOSE LD 1696.

Lawful firearm manufacturers and dealers should not be responsible for crimes committed by third parties outside of their control. This bad policy is motivated by those who simply want to destroy the sporting community because they know that if the industry cannot engage in lawful commerce, hunters and sport shooters cannot hunt and shoot.
