Gov. Lepage concerned for safety of gun owners and non-gun owners

Gov. Paul LePage displays his concealed weapons permit

Governor Paul R. LePage released today the following statement regarding news that the Bangor Daily News is requesting the names and addresses of concealed weapons permit holders from law enforcement agencies across the state:

“If newspapers would like to know who has concealed weapons permits, then they should know the Governor has his. I have serious concerns that BDN’s request will incite fear among gun owners and non-gun owners alike regarding their safety. There is no reason why these records should be public and I encourage the Legislature to act quickly to make this personal information confidential.

As I have said, the rights of law-abiding citizens to own firearms will not be questioned while I am Governor. That is especially true for those who respect the law enough to go through the process of obtaining a permit to carry concealed.”

    Another Political stunt conducted by a biased news outlet. Will they also be collecting and disbursing personal information on ALL law enforcement personal in the state who also are giving special licenses to carry concealed guns? Lets see how that goes over!
