Gun control legislation passes in Maine

Two Democrats initially voted against, but then switched their votes.  The bill provides civil penalties for selling a firearm to a prohibited person, with a background check as a defense from prosecution.

The governor will likely veto the bill, and support is thin enough to make overriding the veto difficult.

UPDATE: Veto upheld.
