On this day, my "Constitutional Carry" legislation goes into law across the entire State of Maine.
If you have been following the push for Constitutional Carry, then you know this is a monumental achievement for supporters of the 2nd Amendment here in Maine.
For over 20 years, 2nd Amendment supporters in Maine have been advocating for this common sense protection of our constitutional rights, and finally---with overwhelming bipartisan majorities in the legislature---Constitutional Carry will now become the law of the land.
Of course, this event is not only to celebrate our accomplishments, but also to prepare for the future.
It is no secret that by standing up for limited government and our constitutional freedoms, I have earned the anger of certain entrenched, special interests groups.
Out-of-state billionaire financiers like Michael Bloomberg have already spent tens of thousands of dollar trying to oppose my efforts to restore our freedoms. There is no doubt they are prepared to spend just as much to kick me out of Augusta once and for all when I come up for re-election next year.
To be able to continue fighting for the freedoms of all Maine people, I am going to need your help in the challenges ahead.
I may not have billions in the bank like Michael Bloomberg, but with the support of grassroots Mainers like you, we can overcome the out-of-state billionaire financiers.
On October 15, I certainly hope to see you in Auburn to celebrate the first day of Constitutional Carry.
Thank you for all your support. None of this would be possible without you.
Senator Eric Brakey
P.S. Don't miss this historic moment.
October 15 is the first day of Constitutional Carry here in the State of Maine, and I hope you can celebrate with us.
