GunSense VT Candlelight Vigil
Thursday, November 2nd
Pliny Park, Brattleboro
5-6 pm

GunSense VT is holding a candlelight vigil in Brattleboro this Thursday, November 2nd at Pliny Park, 5 p.m. in support of the people of Lewiston, Maine, banning assault weapons, and passing common sense legislation to save innocent lives. It is one of several that are planned for the same day around the State.

As GunSense VT board member Laura Subin, whose daughter was in lockdown at Bates College in Lewiston last week, said, "The chilling proximity of the tragedy in Maine shatters any illusion of safety we might have previously felt here in Vermont. It is a harrowing reminder that no community is immune to this sort of heartache."

GunSense VT remains committed to advocating for common sense gun laws that can save lives and reduce the risk of such tragedies. A full ban on semi-automatic assault weapons, a priority for the 2024 legislative session, has been a long standing tenet of the organization and gun safety advocates.

Local GunSense VT volunteers who are organizing the vigil encourage everyone to join in this show of support. Bring a candle or just yourself. Candles will be available.

GunSense Vermont is a grassroots, non partisan organization working to ensure that all Vermonters are free from gun violence. It is part of a growing movement nationwide to stem the epidemic of gun violence.
