By now everyone is aware of the Colorado church shootings where the 24-year old shooter killed four people at two locations before an armed, female security guard put him on the floor with lead. The shooter then did himself in.
This brings me to a question: Why are so many Maine church goers breaking the law every Sunday?
Maine law requires that shotguns be carried to church in case of Native American attack.
No, I’m not lying, Ranger Man wouldn’t do that. It’s a fact, an old blue law that’s still on the books today. I have YET to see ANYONE carrying their shotgun to church on Sunday.
I had an idea recently to bring attention to these criminals. I’d get a friend with a video camera to attend church with me some Sunday. I’d have a microphone and I’d start asking church goers where their shotguns are, I’d ask, “WHY are you breaking the law!?” After I harassed enough people I’d call the police (maybe they’d call them first). The police would show up, tell me to leave, when another friend shows up for church WITH a shotgun! We’d inevitably get arrested, it’d all be on video, and then we’d sue for being arrested when we were the only ones obeying the law. We’d YouTube the video, become famous and retire.

I ran this idea by an attorney I know . . . . . he advised against it.
If you’re in Maine, be a good citizen and call the cops on Sunday church goers. No one is above the law.
