Last month Maine passed L.D. 35, a law that allows employees with valid concealed firearm permits to keep a firearm in their vehicle at work – so long as the vehicle is locked and the firearm is not visible.

Keep in mind, however, that the below answers are based on a narrow reading of L.D. 35 and only a viable “test case” can provide more definitive guidance.
