STERLING, Va. – Congressional candidates and constituents of VA-10 talked face-to-face about gun reform and school safety at “Town Hall For Our Lives” in Sterling, Virginia Saturday.

Organizers say about 160-175 people were in attendance, and some people had to sit in an overflow room.

Congressional candidates who attended included Lindsey Davis Stover, Julia Biggins, Paul Pelletier, Dan Helmer, Alison Friedman, Shadi Ayyas, and Jennifer Wexton.

The event was intended to be a bipartisan conversation, according to organizers.

Representative Barbara Comstock was not in attendance. However, a group called “Gays Against Guns” dressed up as Comstock characters and attended on her behalf.
