Jared Golden reverses himself to back assault weapons ban after Lewiston shooting

LEWISTON, Maine — A day after deadly mass shootings in his home city, U.S. Rep. Jared Golden of Maine’s 2nd District said Thursday he supported the kind of assault weapons ban that he has opposed so far during his time in Congress.

It was a major reversal from the Democrat from a rural district won twice by former President Donald Trump. Golden’s opposition to gun control led the National Rifle Association to take no side in his 2022 election for a third term against former Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin.
