Bill to Arm Forest Rangers Not Supported in Committee

A bill to allow Maine forest rangers to carry guns has stalled and may be carried over for consideration next year. Nearly 20 forest rangers testified in favor of the bill last month.

The rangers supported the bill to protect themselves while they patrol remote areas and confront people who might be breaking the law.  However, the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, the state agency that oversees the forest rangers doesn’t back the bill. According to the KJ, this was one of the lesser-known gun bills to come before the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee, which has held public hearings on more than two dozen gun measures.
