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
WASHINGTON, DC —Today, as thousands of students across the country walked out of school to demand action on gun violence, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) joined other members of Congress for a National Walkout Day demonstration in front of the U.S. Capitol. At the Capitol demonstration, Pingree released a video message to students in Maine who had planned 40 walkouts—many of which were postponed due to Tuesday’s snowstorm—to say their concerns have been heard in Washington.
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.
