A bill that would have required background checks for private gun sales in Maine was defeated in the Maine House Thursday.

The 66-80 vote against the measure is the latest in a series of gun control measures to be rejected by the Legislature, despite intensive lobbying efforts by gun safety advocates.

Still pending is a so-called 'red flag' bill that would allow police to temporarily confiscate firearms from a person who is deemed to be a danger to themselves or others as well another measure that would require people taken into protective custody to surrender their guns if they were deemed dangerous.

But earlier this week the Legislature rejected a bill that would have allowed municipal and county governments to ban firearms from public places, including polling stations. The Legislature has also rejected a bill that would have created a minimum 72-hour waiting period for the purchase of a gun and another that would have required gun owners to use trigger locks or gun safes on weapons stored at home.

Another win, this time in Maine https://www.pressherald.com/2019/06/13/maine-house-rejects-bill-requiring-background-check-for-private-gun-sales/
