Strimling proposes assault-weapon ban in Maine

AUGUSTA - A state senator wants Maine to activate an assault-weapons ban similar to a federal ban that expired in September.

Sen. Ethan Strimling's, D-Portland, proposal would ban manufacturing, transferring and possession of assault weapons in Maine. It would also ban .50-caliber rifles, but exempt antique weapons.

Strimling wants to give Maine law enforcement leeway to develop a system to identify new assault weapons and add them to the list.

Strimling said military-grade weapons are unnecessary and dangerous and he calls his bill a common sense approach to gun control. Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence supports his bill.

They all probably saw how "effective" the federal one was. The sunsetting of that one was a blow to the anti-gunners, because crime rates didn't change the way they predicted they would. No murders in the street, no armed rebellions, etc. "Common sense" and "gun control" don't belong in the same sentence.
