Gun Safety Day of Action

210 State St
Augusta, ME
Wednesday, January 3, 2024
9:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Mark your calendars for a Gun Safety Day of Action, when Mainers from across the state will descend on the State House in Augusta to demand that our legislators pass strong gun safety legislation this year. The League is partnering with the Maine Gun Safety Coalition to organize this day. 

Mainers are strong and resilient, and we will use our power to protect our communities. We need common sense gun legislation to prevent further tragedies and to protect our communities. We will urge our Maine legislators to support legislation that will:

  • Implement universal background checks 
  • End the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines
  • Put a REAL red flag law in place 
  • Establish a 72 hour waiting period for gun purchases

Maine can't wait for another mass shooting to happen before we pass gun safety bills that are vital to public health. The time is now! We'll see you in Augusta.
