    Competing Bills Would End Concealed Weapon License Requirement

    I always marvel at how the liberal media makes us think mayhem will ensue from folk carrying legally. Dishonest folk will continue to carry illegally regardless of what laws are in effect. Passing a law such as this will give them a opportunity to wonder if that next person they are going to...

    LEO Encounter in Maine

    I just submitted my CCW application today. In Maine you usually submit it to your local police department. As a part of the application process they are required to take a photograph. After the officer had taken my picture and as I was leaving he said it was a pleasure meeting me. Then he...
