A Question For All Maine Gun Owners

A theoretical but a very possible occurrence. You are a Maine citizen and a gun owner. You are on your way to a shoot. You find that you have to leave your pick-up truck for some reason. Since you cannot lock your pick-up, you stick your empty pistol under your belt. Some one notices the bulge and calls the police. The police officer who responds sees the bulge, and asks you what it is. You answer, showing him that the gun is empty, and explaining why you didn't leave it in the pick-up. You are arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.

In court, your attorney argues that you are not guilty because the Maine Constitution says: "Section 16; Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned." He tells the judge that you have never before been arrested and you have an immaculate record.

Question: Would you rather be judged by the judge, or, would you rather have a jury that could be informed that, as a fully informed jury, they had the constitutional right to judge both the law and the evidence and to bring a verdict according to their conscience?

Think about it.
