Moss Skipped Candidate Forum To Talks Guns With Teens

Mar 8, 2018

Democratic candidate for Congress Lynda Moss made a campaign stop in Kalispell Wednesday night. She chatted with a half dozen voters over craft beer at a fundraising event at Kalispell Brewing Company.

Moss talked about her background working in collaborative grassroots projects, like Leadership Montana, and serving two terms in the Montana senate.

She was noticeably absent from a candidate forum hosted by the Gallatin County Democrats two weeks ago. Moss says she instead attended a meeting about gun safety hosted by high school students and the gun-control advocacy group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

"I wanted to meet and hear from 16-year-old high school students that are concerned about their safety, that are concerned about violence they see happening in schools across the country," Moss said.

Moss says she will join students for the national school walkout on March 14 to protest congressional inaction on gun safety legislation.
