Democratic Congressional candidate Kathleen Williams and her supporters set up a table and met students in front of the Griz Statue.

Williams, who is running for Montana’s Congressional seat this fall, is a gun owner and hunter. She said that assault rifles are not typical wildlife hunting weapons but she is not against them being used in a controlled environment such as a shooting range.
