Gun Owners of Maine Statement on
Executive Order 19 AN ORDER REGARDING ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES AND OPERATIONS
March 26, 2020
Effective immediately, all business named as “Non-Essential”, without specific exemptions, are required to cease operations. This current Executive Order is set to expire at Midnight on April 8, 2020. Depending on the current status of COVID-19 this may be extended, or in the best case scenario, allowed to expire. The Federal orders have been implemented in this case. After reaching out to the Governor’s office for clarification, working hand in hand with the National Rifle Association and Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, we have been told that gun shops in Maine are not listed as “Essential Businesses” by name. Larger stores, primarily known as “Box Stores” who also sell firearms and ammunition are allowed to remain in business under this Executive Order.
While we understand, and are sympathetic to the concerns with virus transmission, we feel that not allowing citizens to access firearms, ammunition and other items related to self-preservation, sets a dangerous precedent. There are plenty of avenues to reduce viral transmission that are being implemented by other businesses which DO qualify as “Essential” and have protection from closure. Some of these exemptions include convenience stores and hardware stores. While we see the value in both, we also can’t overlook the importance of access to items of critical, Constitutionally protected items such as firearms and ammunition, which rise well above “convenience” items.
Gun shops are important centers for training, repair, refinishing, and resupply for Law Enforcement, Security Personnel and citizens in their respective area. Allowing the closing of gun shops would put every community at a severe disadvantage with respect to safety and security, and would be magnified several times over during a crisis situation. Local police officers and their departments are serviced by their area gun shops. Closing these vital businesses down leaves them as unprepared and vulnerable as the citizens they serve and protect.
Far beyond “convenience”, firearms, ammunition and their accessories are a primary tool of many Mainers, and necessary to participate in hunting, predator and animal control.
While we understand that drastic measures may be necessary to assist in curbing the transmission of COVID-19, shops that sell constitutionally protected items, such as firearms, ammunition and accessories cannot be logically overlooked, especially while exempting stores that carry items primarily for convenience. For millions of Americans, firearms are considered a NECESSITY, playing an enhanced role in times of public discomfort, crisis and unrest.
We are disappointed that gun shops haven’t been initially named as an exempted “Essential Business” and can’t overlook the strong sentiment across the nation for their necessity. Areas that are MUCH less friendly to firearms ownership have had their initial Executive Orders modified to specifically allow them to reopen and remain open to serve their community.
We urge you to contact Governor Mills and respectfully request that Gun Shops be added to the list of “Essential Businesses” as soon as possible.

Attention Federal Firearms Licensees:
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) recognizes the essential role that FFLs perform in keeping the public safe, and we greatly value your cooperation. ATF encourages you to secure your inventory and your required records should you be required to cease in person operations at your premises pursuant to a state mandate. If you anticipate needing to move your required records from your licensed premises, please contact your local ATF office for further guidance. You are also encouraged to notify your local ATF office should you re-locate your inventory.
For useful information on steps that can be taken to reduce your vulnerability to theft or burglary, please refer to ATF P 5380.1, Loss Prevention for Firearms Retailers, https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/guide/loss-prevention-firearms-retailers/download.
FFLs who discover the theft or loss of firearms are required by law to report the incident within 48 hours of the discovery to their local law enforcement agency. A separate report must be made to ATF by calling 1-888-930-9275 (a toll free number) and by completing and submitting by email, fax, or mail ATF Form 3310.11, Federal Firearms Licensee Theft/Loss Report, https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/form/federal-firearms-licensee-theftloss-report-atf-form-331011/download.
Any time you spot suspicious activity related to your FFL business, please contact your local and/or State law enforcement agency. FFLs are additionally encouraged to contact your local ATF field office in the Boston Field Division should you have any questions regarding this notice. Thank you for your continued cooperation and vigilance.
I will be closed until April 8th 2020 in compliance with the executive order stating that all non essential businesses must close. I called the state yesterday and talked to them via email and over the phone. They said they would allow me to transfer those firearms that were held by delay and the process the transfers I have in house. These transactions must be conducted outside, in a safe manner, with limited contact, social distancing, and disinfecting any handled items. Any of those that are effected please contact me via email to schedual a time for picking up your items. I am accepting CASH ONLY for transfers. I will be available by appointment from 9am-Noon Mon-Fri this is only for those that need to pick up items such as transfers. NO NEW SALES. Fyi - many individuals are being delayed.
I must show that I am closed to the public by a closed sign on the door, and by posting on my website, Google, Bing, and social media. Anywhere business hours would be posted. I cannot conuduct any new business. They have a list of businesses that are not complying to the executive order. There are those that are checking to see if non essential businesses are closed and are reporting those that are not. They have a list. Since I did not want to be on "the list" and did not want to deal with the consequences of defying that order I will comply as much as I do feel that I am an essential business. I will probably be busy doing my projects and those that the wife has lined up for me for the next few weeks. I have many shipments coming in and I will have good stock when I reopen.

FYI - Some mornings I may open 15-30 min late due to processing of firearms. Our shipments come very late, sometimes after we close. So please check here or Google (Google should be the first choice) as we will try to post to atleast one or all if we are opening late or have changes in hours. Usually Google https://g.page/mainegundealer is the best place to look.
STORMS - Some mornings I may open late due to SNOW STORMS I maintain my own driveway so I will be behind due to plowing. I will post hour changes on Google and the website if there are any changes in hours. Google is best. I will be plowing during the day when there is a snow storm. I will be closed when I am plowing the driveway which could be at anytime. It can take a half hour to an hour to plow using my ATV. I will not open until I am completely done plowing. I cannot have customers and delivery vehicles stuck in the driveway because I stopped in the middle of plowing. Sometimes I will close during a snow or ice storm if the driveway is bad and not safe or not passable. Always check this page and Google before making the trip.
SCHOOL - When school is in session I may open late or close early. I have to take my youngest daugher to a Christian School that has no buses for transportation. Me and my wife take turns taking her to school every other week. This causes me to be late opening on some days. I still have shipments to process, paperwork, and errands to do and since I lose almost 45 minutes or more some mornings just taking her to school. I will open late on some days. When school is in session you may want to show up at 9:15 - 9:30 just in case. I cannot update this website remotely. Since I maybe driving I may not be able to update hours on Google but I do try to update Google Hours when I am not driving. Things happen that are beyond my control.
SPORTS - Some days she has sports activities week nights or on Saturdays. Soccer, Cheering, or Softball seasons. Sometimes she may need to be picked up early from school which may cause me to close early or mid day for a short time. Generally I know ahead of time when this happens. I will try change hours on this page and Google if this happens. Always check this page and Google before making the trip.
If you arrive and we are closed look at the sign on the door for expected opening time which may be off by a few minutes. (See Below)
Changes in hours: See this page, Facebook, Twitter, or Google https://g.page/mainegundealer. Circumstances beyond our control can happen that may cause us to open late or close early. Google is usually best place to look.
Unexpected closure (not a normal occurance) - IF FOR SOME REASON I AM CLOSED WHEN YOU GET HERE. CHECK THIS SIGN ON THE DOOR FOR MY TIME OF RETURN. I might be back a little sooner or later than the time posted. I might be in the shop but I may have something that came up that does not allow me to wait on customers (computer issues, bathroom break, family emergency, gone to the house to get lunch ....) and since I am a firearms dealer I must be 100% available in the retail area for the door to be unlocked and the sign to show open. I have no one to take my place or cover for me. If the sign on the door shows closed the door will be locked. I have a security system with cameras and I will know you are there but I will not open until around the time shown on the door sign. I cannot open until I am ready to handle the retail flow. I have customers that drive in and see the sign shows closed but they to not realize the time is posted on the door and I might be only closed for a few minutes. This is not a normal occurance but I did want to mention it.
