Tell Sen. Brownie Carson: "No Red Flag Gun Confiscation!"

Senator Brownie Carson declared that he doesn’t want to hear from his constituents.

After delivering petitions from Maine people against Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, Senator Brownie Carson refused to accept the petitions from his constituents and said he didn’t want them. He is also a co-sponsor of the Red Flag bill.

He wrote on the envelope containing the petitions from his constituents, “Please don’t give me any more of this. -Brownie

But it is the sacred trust of all legislators to consider the wishes of their constituents and all Maine people, so lets DOUBLE DOWN.

Senator Brownie Carson says he doesn't want any more petitions, but it is the sacred trust of all legislators to consider the wishes of their constituents and all Maine people...

So let's send Senator Carson a message LOUD and CLEAR: he cannot ignore the Maine people. The right of the people to keep and bear arms "shall never be questioned!"

Petition to Senator Brownie Carson:
"No Red Flag Gun Confiscation!"

WHEREAS, you, Senator Brownie Carson, as a representative of the people in a constitutional republic, have a sacred trust to listen to and consider the will of your constituents; and

WHEREAS, you violated that sacred trust by refusing to receive petitions from your own constituents opposed to "Red Flag" Gun Confiscation, declaring that you didn't want any more of them; and

WHEREAS, you have co-sponsored LD 1312 to strip innocent Maine people of their legally owned firearms with no notice and ZERO due process through Gun Confiscation Orders; and

WHEREAS, upon taking office, you swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the State of Maine; and

WHEREAS, your proposal for Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders violates the Declaration of Rights of the Maine State Constitution, which states that "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law..." (Article I, Section 6-A), and "Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned" (Article I, Section 16); and

WHEREAS, a Gun Confiscation Order in the state of Maryland has already resulted in the death of an innocent gun owner, 61-year-old Gary Willis, when government agents came to his home early in the morning and demanded he surrender his firearms; and

WHEREAS, the State of Maine is currently ranked the safest state in America (with the #1 lowest violent crime rate) and also maintains strong legal protections for the individual right to keep and bear arms (including Constitutional Carry), "Red Flag" Gun Confiscation Orders and other gun control proposals are both unnecessary and potentially detrimental to the safety of Maine people;

THEREFORE, I urge you, Senator Brownie Carson, to publicly apologize for violating the sacred trust of the people by refusing to receive petitions from your constituents; and

THEREFORE, I urge you, Senator Brownie Carson, to rescind your support for unconstitutional Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders; and

THEREFORE, if you continue to violate your oath of office to uphold the Maine Constitution by trampling on the rights of the people, I urge you, Senator Brownie Carson, to resign from office.

    Dear Senator Carson,

    Your sir are a very disrespectful individual to the voices of the Maine people. You sir work for us the Maine people. As in you work for my brothers, my sister-in-law, my friends, myself and all who are citizens of this beautiful state. We do not work for you. You still work for us. We live in a representative Republic.

    In case you forgot what a republic is. A republic is a representative government. Which means all the people who are in office are voted in its for the People by the people and of the people. We do not live in a dictatorship. But a representative Republic. Don’t forget the people voted you in. So have some respect for the people that you work for. But i think you forgot that you paycheck comes from we the tax payers. Perhaps you should start listening to the voices of the Maine people again and not your own ego.


    Sincerely

    Shannon Brewer a proud Maine citizen!

    Listen to your constituents who voted you in. If you can’t take the heat, then get away from the fire. If you have an agenda that is contrary to the citizen, it is your duty to listen to them, unless you are the type that” it’s my way or the highway.” If so, then you don’t belong in an elected state government position and are probably a tool for a higher power.

    If you dislike hearing from the people you represent Retire!

    No more Red flag bills nor any more gun legislation bills. Maine has already voted on gun issues.

    One of the few ways your constituents can let you know how they feel about a given matter, and since YOU are supposed to be representing THEIR best interests — “be their voice” – is through petitions. Your refusal to accept petitions from the people YOU WORK FOR is a slap in the face of those hard working Mainers! This affects ALL Mainers, and it’s pretty arrogant of you to think you don’t answer to the people who put you in that office!

    When a person is elected to a Maine office, they are elected by the persons in the district he represents. Senator Brownie Carson, you are an unmitigated self serving jerk who apparently thinks he has been elected as King rather than a Rep to the Maine House.

    By rejecting petitions of his constituents Senator Carson has also violated his oath of office to uphold the Maine Constitution with regards to Article I, Section 15: Right of petition which states: The people have a right at all times in an orderly and peaceable manner to assemble to consult upon the common good, to give instructions to their representatives, and to request, of either department of the government by petition or remonstrance, redress of their wrongs and grievances.


    If you cannot uphold our state constitution, Senator Carson, you should resign from office.

    Senator Carson: Your oath of office was a promise to support the Constitutions of the United States and of Maine, and to discharge the duties of your office according to those Constitutions and the laws of the State of Maine. To refuse to consider the wishes of your constituents is a violation of one of your primary duties and, a violation of a fundamental principle of our republic.
