LTE by Ellen Alderman: Background checks work, but dangerous people still can get guns in Maine

We live and work here. We raise our families, practice our faith, pay taxes and vote here. We are working hard to pass Question 3 for the sake of our families and our communities. We know that Question 3 will save Maine lives while preserving our proud tradition of gun ownership and the individual right to bear arms.

Under Question 3, Mainers legally entitled to guns for self defense, hunting and sport shooting will still have them, but some dangerous or disturbed people who mean to do harm will not. It’s the way life should be.
