Guns in Schools in Maine

Posted on July 16, 2015

Maine law prohibits possession of a firearm on public school property.1 In 2010, Maine adopted a law extending this prohibition to the property of approved private schools.2

No law in Maine prohibits possession of a firearm on the campus of a college or university, however, colleges and universities may regulate the possession of firearms on their property.3
