Portland anti-gun rally: No little guns or big guns mounted on warships - they all kill kids!

Bob Klotz reports from the Saturday March For Our Lives protest in Portland where he and others went to make connections to LD 1781:
The powerful solidarity associated with the international March For Our Lives was clearly evident with the over 3,000 people in Portland, Maine -- and was all the more reinforced with engagement around opposition to L.D. 1781. Bob Klotz and Sarah Lachance distributed 300 informational fliers and, along with Paul Cunningham, had numerous conversations with March participants about the issue. People were familiar and supportive and unfamiliar and interested. The family-friendly event amplified the family/people-unfriendly nature of this bill, with many acknowledging that $60 million is needed by the people of the state, not an obscenely profitable multi-national corporation.
