Maine Gov Addresses Gun Rally Supporting 2nd Amendment

Gun control opponents rally outside the Maine State House in support of the Second Amendment.

Largely absent from the Maine political stage since his unsuccessful primary bid in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, Blaine Richardson stepped to the microphone outside the State House, as the snow blew sideways, and took a moment to reflect on divine providence.

“If we could just take a moment to thank God for bringing us together here, to protect our God-given rights,” Richardson said. “We’re here particularly for the 2nd Amendment today. Let’s find the strength to carry this message across the state of Maine.”

The Maine gathering is part of a national movement to stand up to gun control legislation being crafted in Washington, and at the state level, in response to proposed gun control measures in the aftermath of the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Protestors carried the yellow tea party Don’t Tread On Me flags and a variety of signs.

“My sign says, ‘More laws by misguided politicians make us victims.’ My daughter’s sign says, ‘Gun-free zones make her a target,'” said Maria Solorzano, of Jefferson.

Solorzano says the rally was a clarion call to all freedom-loving Americans. “Because the Second Amendment is imperative to us staying a free nation, I think when you start taking apart any of our amendments, that’s a slippery slope and when is it going to stop?” Solorzano said.
