Maine Governor Wants Gun Owners to Help Rid the State of Drug Dealers

Maine governor, Paul LePage, became headline news when he talked about bringing back the guillotine to use on drug dealers. He's now talking about guns.

On Wednesday, LePage told reporters that Mainers are allowed to carry concealed handguns. He also said, "Load up and get rid of the drug dealers." He did say he wasn't suggesting vigilantism.

The governor is frustrated by out-of-state drug dealers that he blames for creating Maine's heroin epidemic. In addition, he said he supports charging them with homicide if their drugs are linked to an overdose death. He added that Maine should bring back the death penalty.

Critics have gone after him for saying things such as dealers come to Maine and impregnate "white girls."
