October 14, 2018 -- Sean Casten, Sixth Congressional District candidate, participated in a March For Our Lives town hall last night with survivors of the Parkland school shooting, students from local Illinois high schools, and advocates for common-sense gun safety reform. Casten will meet privately with the Parkland students on Monday for a follow up discussion on gun control and other issues important to them.
"I'm grateful for the chance to join the Parkland students at the March For Our Lives Town Hall," said Casten. "It's criminal that the political pressure of a small group is standing in the way of the will of the majority of the country who are calling for common-sense gun control that will help keep us safe. Any weapon specifically designed to kill large numbers of people shouldn't be on our streets, period."
