Paintball hits Maine pol's home after gun voteApril 26, 2013 @ 11:07 am
BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - A Maine lawmaker who cast a critical vote on gun control legislation says someone fired a paintball at his home in an attempt to intimidate him.
Sen. David Dutremble broke a 6-6 tie Tuesday in supporting a bill to limit gun magazines to 10 rounds. The vote by the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee sent the bill to the full Legislature with a recommendation to pass it.
The following evening, police received a report of someone firing a paintball at a second-floor window of his home. It made a mess but didn't break the window.
The Portland Press Herald ( http://bit.ly/1829R9P) says Dutremble said in a statement that lawmakers should not be subjected to threats or acts of violence. Police are investigating.
