Pennsylvania Townhalls

Ask them anything!
My name is Joan, I am a concerned voting citizen not a paid protester.

Glenn Thompson, I'm very concerned about mass shootings that have not been mentioned here today. In the past, you have blamed mass shootings on mental health issues rather than on the availability of guns. So then why did you vote to nullify a commonsense rule that prevented the mentally ill from acquiring guns?

And while we're on the subject of guns, we also need to have very strong required background checks on all purchases on guns, even on the internet and even at gun shows.


This from a transcription of the 2/25/2017 State College town hall held by Congressman Glenn Thompson's constituents. The Representative was invited, but he did not attend. Links to the video are available here. The text has been lightly edited for clarity.
