Maine: Secretary of State Assigns Bloomberg Gun Control Initiative, Question Number 3 on the November Ballot

by NRA-ILA  |  published on June 28, 2016

The Maine Secretary of State announced that the Bloomberg gun control initiative will be Question 3 on the November ballot. Question 3 would make common firearm transfers illegal unless conducted through a federally licensed firearms dealer, absent limited and narrow exceptions (so-called “universal” background checks).

This November, Mainers will have the opportunity to vote down this unnecessary and unenforceable proposal. Bloomberg’s NYC propaganda may say this is a “gun safety” measure, but we all know that this measure has nothing to do with safety or addressing crime and would only impact law-abiding Mainers. It’s important that Mainers stand up for their rights and not let New York City money influence the future of Maine!

    This ballot measure is a bad idea. When someone looks to get rid of a gun they would be forced to sell it to a gun dealer for a fraction of its value. People looking to buy a used gun would have to purchase it at an inflated price from a gun dealer. I can see how this will help gun dealers but it isn’t clear how this will help consumers.

      Along with putting everyone buying and selling on the National List. That is the real elephant in the room with this proposed law. Can anyone say put us on the list so you can take our guns when you finally clear the social hurdles to disarming the country?

      • CharlieSeattle

        Exactly, The list is required for gun confiscation later.

    Maybe the first question on the ballot should be, “should the state keep criminals locked up for their full sentence plus 5 years”?

    • CharlieSeattle

      followed by….”should the state raise taxes, as required, to pay for it?”

      • Luke

        Well put them on bologna and water and cut off all and any perks, after all these people owe society, not the other way around..
        Working people pay enough taxes to house these sorry people, very little money should be spent on them while in jail..

        • CharlieSeattle

          Ahh, a liberal that thinks prisons are free too! Hahhaahahahaa

          • Luke

            Are you that liberal, I’m certainly no liberal and nothing I have said could be said to be liberal gibberish

            I never said prison was free, I said you do not have to raise taxes to house more of these criminals, cut spending on them, put them in a tent if you have to or we can give them your home address….

    Yes siree, all the criminals will go to a licensed gun dealer when they want to sell a gun. The stupidity of liberals is astounding.

    • TeaPartyPatriot

      I’m sure the thugs are willing to have the serial numbers on the guns they have stolen checked and approved for sale to the felon that is willing to pay the highest price.

      Carol Snyder: I agree. but it is not stupidity that is pushing this law, It is an attempt to make owning a firearm more difficult and discourage US citizens from owning guns.

      • carol snyder

        Oh I agree with you. I’m just glad all of ours were bought in Az. So none of them are registered. Now that I’m in the totally unfriendly gun state of Ct. I don’t want anyone knowing what I have

    • CharlieSeattle

      When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns!
