I joined the NRA when I was 15, and I took to college a typewriter, record player and Ithaca 12-gauge shotgun. I shot my first deer two years later. I admire Maine’s hunting traditions and gun culture that are basic Maine values. But I believe that opposing sensible gun laws is the greatest threat to the future of those traditions.

The last time voters in Maine were asked about gun rights, they easily passed a constitutional amendment creating a right to own firearms that “shall never be questioned.” Three decades later, the state known for its hunting tradition will vote on whether to tighten restrictions on gun sales and transfers.
Maine is one of four states, along with California, Nevada and Washington, where voters will decide Nov. 8 whether to enact tougher firearms laws. In a change from past elections, there are no statewide initiatives seeking to expand gun rights anywhere in the U.S.

This is in response to your Post Journal Oct.26 front page article by A.J.Rao. Your article basically says that our neighboring States need stricter gun laws. In the article Mr. Rao says that between 2010-2015 there were 153 guns recovered in Chautauqua County. However your article fails to mention how many of these guns were actually purchased legally. Your opening sentence states that 55 stolen guns were recovered. The guns were stolen from a string of gun shop burglaries in Pennsylvania.

We aren’t toggling “whine” mode on exactly, but we are giving a little time to two pistols we don’t see very often at the range. Not only are both practical, soft and inexpensive-shooting rimfires that borrow on famed, Olympic-grade excellence, but they are so good in other respects that ignoring them borders on an outright mistake.


 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
...If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. Under the higher law, under the great law of morality and righteousness, he is precisely as guilty if, instead of lying in a court, he lies in a newspaper or on the stump; and in all probability, the evil effects of his conduct are infinitely more widespread and more pernicious. — Teddy Roosevelt - May 12, 1900
