Maine voters give Bloomberg's ballot measure the boot

A campaign to expand background checks to include most gun transfers– paid for in large part by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg– was rejected by voters in Maine.

At first glance, the initiative should have been an obvious misstep for gun control advocates in a state that sank ballot measures by New York-based anti-hunting groups to curb bear harvesting in both 2004 and 2014 while adopting constitutional carry with broad support in 2015. Nonetheless, the New England state has voted Democrat in every presidential election since 1992, and with 2016 being the scene of another presidential turn out, the Maine chapter of Mom’s Demand Action started the ball rolling on the initiative last August.
