MAINE ALLOWS CONCEALED CARRY WITHOUT PERMIT
Maine Gov. Paul LePage has signed a bill that will allow residents to carry a concealed handgun without obtaining a permit.
Maine will become the sixth state in the country with such a policy when the law goes into effect 90 days after lawmakers adjourn later this month.
Supporters of the bill signed Wednesday say permits are a burden on responsible gun owners and don't prevent bad people from carrying firearms.
