For the second time, Michelle McCabe was awarded the 2020 Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction. McCabe also received the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction in In 2018 and was one of only two candidates in Connecticut to be endorsed by Everytown for Gun Safety.

“I am proud to once again be a Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America​ Candidate in recognition of my unwavering support of strong gun safety legislation,” said McCabe.

McCabe continued, “With gun violence on the rise, we need elected officials we can count on to consistently support policies that keep us safe. My opponent, on the other hand, voted to lift the ban on concealed weapons in our state parks. As your state senator, you can be assured that I will be a champion of gun safety.” 

On average, more than 100 Americans are shot and killed every day — and twice that many are wounded. This issue impacts every community, including those in the 28th Senate District. 

“While Connecticut has the fifth lowest rate of gun violence in the United States, there is still much work to be done to reduce gun homicide rates, reduce the flow of illegal weapons, and ensure that our gun laws protect all members of our community, including people of color,” McCabe said. 

Michelle McCabe is a long-time resident of Fairfield, Conn. where she lives with her three children. She is the Director of the Center for Food Equity and Economic Development (FEED) at The Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport.
