Cynthia Dill on Gun Control

 


Responsible gun ownership but not assault rifles or AK47s

I support the Second Amendment and favor responsible gun ownership for hunting and protection of property.

I do not support the National Rifle Association, a divisive, extremist group. In 2004, the NRA lobbied for the Stand Your Ground law used to justify the killing of an unarmed black youth in Florida. It is lobbying for similar legislation in other states. It stopped the renewal of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994. It's a divisive, extremist group that's out of step even with pro-gun Mainers. My campaign will not seek nor accept their support.

We're talking about unregistered assault rifles, machine guns and other munitions modified to escape regulation, not rifles, muskets, handguns and other firearms used by Americans for legitimate uses like protection of property or hunting. I don't believe every teenager should be allowed to buy an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle at a gun show.

I battled attempts to put more guns in hands of teenagers

In the Maine Legislature, I have battled attempts to insert government into the sacred doctor-client privilege, but also to weaken child labor laws, prohibit unions in women-dominated child care, shift income taxes to the middle class and put more guns in the hands of teenagers.
