I continue pushing Congress to take meaningful action to address the national crisis of gun violence. Watch this page for updates on my efforts.
More on Gun Violence
Congresswoman Chellie Pingree released the following statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas that has claimed 58 lives and injured more than 500.
Each time there’s a mass shooting, citizens across the country have a conversation on how to keep the next one from happening and how to keep guns out of the hands of people who want to commit violence.
Congresswoman Chellie Pingree is headed back to Washington today where she plans to join colleagues in pushing for a vote in the US House on common sense bills to reduce gun violence in America.
"Gun violence has taken a huge personal toll on the lives of so many families in this country," Pingree said. "We can do a lot more to keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them and this week Republican leaders in Congress should let us vote on two bipartisan pieces of legislation that have the overwhelming support of the American people."
