    Our multi-partisan panel tackle Question 3 on Maine’s ballot this November, with a supporter and an opponent of the measure joining us to answer questions from the panel and callers.

    Question 3 is a citizen initiative that reads: “Do you want to require background checks prior to the sale or transfer of firearms between individuals not licensed as firearms dealers, with failure to do so punishable by law, and with some exceptions for family members, hunting, self-defense, lawful competitions, and shooting range activity?” (FMI: www.state.me.us/sos/cec/elec/upcoming/index.html)

    Panel: Trump supporter Thomas White; Libertarian/Johnson supporter Renee Trust; Democrat/Clinton supporter Ken Gleason; Green/Stein supporter Betsy Garrold; and “3rd degree Berner” now planning to vote for Stein, Tim Wilson.

    Supporting Question 3: David Farmer, the campaign manager for “Mainers for Responsible Gun Ownership” (responsiblemaine.org/)

    Opposing Question 3: Bruce Ashmore of “Gun Owners of Maine” (www.gunownersofmaine.org/)
