    The state of Maine became the sixth in the country to allow citizens to carry firearms without the need to obtain a permit on Wednesday.

    Gov. Paul Lepage (R.) signed Legislative Document 652 into law Wednesday, creating the state’s new permitless concealed carry framework. The permitless carry, commonly referred to as constitutional carry by gun rights activists, allows anyone over the age of 21 to carry a firearm so long as they legally own the firearm. Felons and other criminals are still prohibited from carrying a firearm.

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) celebrated the move as “another victory for gun owners.”

    “Maine now joins an ever-growing number of states in passing permitless carry,” executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action Chris Cox said in a press release. “Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the Maine legislature and governor stood strong for freedom. It’s encouraging to see a governor stand up for the rights of their constituents, instead of caving to the demands of an anti-gun billionaire from New York City.”

    Just imagine how much Maine's crime rate is going to spike. Total anarchy. I like imagine a world where all states have Constitutional carry...that's the world I want to live in.

    True, but at least we got the Castle Doctrine and they just passed a Shall Sign law into effect for NFA stuff. That's some good stuff!!

    This is a huge win, Maine has passed constitutional carry, New Hampshire has passed constitutional carry very recently and with Vermont (where I live) having never had any sort of gun control laws there are now presumably 3 connected states where you can travel freely with your ccw.
    I have always applauded Maine for their sensible attitude toward concealed carry, even back when Maine required a permit for carry, they recognized that Vermont residents did not and so Maine would allow Vermont residents to ccw with only a valid Vermont drivers license.... pretty awesome Maine.


    Edit: Don't quote me on the legality of traveling with your ccw between the 3 states, it is only my interpretation, I have not studied the laws at length but I believe you can carry in all 3 states. Vermont residents can carry in maine and vice versa, that much is certain.

    I have thought of moving out of Vermont at times because the cost of living is so high but I could never move to a state with ridiculous firearms restrictions. I have to be able to carry without submitting money and paperwork to the state asking for permission.

    All states offer reciprocity for commonly-accepted things like state-issued driver`s license, marriage license, etc. Now they need to do the same for 2nd Amendment issues, which are a constitutionally-guaranteed right.
