Police chiefs in Maine endorse ballot question for gun background checks

Some Maine police chiefs support Question 3.

SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE (Danielle Waugh/NECN) -- In Maine, some police chiefs are pointing to the Boston Marathon bombers as a reason to support tighter gun laws. A ballot question this November would require background checks for all gun sales, including private sales and transfers.
The gun the Tsarnaev brothers used to shoot and kill MIT Officer Sean Collier was purchased legally in Maine, but wound up in the possession of a Portland gang and eventually into Tsarnaev’s possession.
