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.
