Maine law does not require a locking device to accompany the sale of a firearm, although federal law applies. Maine also does not require firearm owners to lock their weapons. However, Maine law does require federally licensed firearms dealers to offer to demonstrate to every firearm purchaser the use of a trigger locking device.1 In addition, dealers must post a sign regarding firearm storage. For more information about the sign, see the Maine Dealer Regulations section.

See our Locking Devices policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
