Glover pens op-ed for BDN about gun violence in Maine

Robert Glover, associate professor of political science and honors at the University of Maine, wrote an op-ed for the Bangor Daily News about the prevalence of gun violence in Maine. “Gun violence is here. It is costly. It is devastating. There is no cultural or social protective bubble rendering us immune from the grisly murder we saw unfold in Texas last week. If we don’t take action, a mass killing such as this will be inevitable in our future,” Glover wrote. Glover co-directs the Maine chapter of the national Scholars Strategy Network, which brings together scholars across the country to address public challenges and their policy implications.
