Maine Votes On Mandatory Firearm Ownership

On NBC News today, Maine is expected to vote on whether or not firearm ownership should be mandatory.

This isn’t something we haven’t heard from other parts of the United States, and it seems to be catching on.  Residents of a town in Maine, Byron, will vote today.  This town of 140 residents already has at least one gun per household however this move would accomplish something another Maine town, Sabbatus, failed to do.  Last week Sabbatus, Maine attempted to pass a similar requirement however it was voted against by the majority of town residents.

Georgia has also been in the news recently as Nelson, GA is expected to vote on April 1 for the same requirement.  Nelson has a population of approximately 1,300 people and employs only one police officer.
