Maine Gun Safety Coalition (501c4) works to prevent gun violence by advocating for personal responsibility, practical legislation, enforcement of laws, and increased manufacturer responsibility. We are dedicated members of the Coalition for a Safer Maine: No More Newtown's! Our current objective is to pass Universal Background Checks at the state level.
Maine Gun Safety Foundation (501c3) is focused primarily on gun safety and education. Since its inception in 2000, our organization has distributed over 25,000 trigger locks through our Gun Lock Giveaway project in partnership with Maine police departments, sheriffs, and community health centers. In addition to the Giveaway project, MGSC has also promoted and held gun safety training courses. We educate about issues around guns in suicides, domestic violence and on college campuses.
