Congressman announces Ridgefield student as State of the Union guest

4th District Congressman Jim Himes has announced his guest for Tuesday's State of the Union Address.  He invited Ridgefield High School student Lane Murdock to join him in Washington D.C., as a way to make a point on legislation he intends to introduce.  The 16-year old organized a national school walkout last spring in response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.  The gun safety group she co-founded came from an online petition for a day of protest and solitary.  The announcement from Himes came the same day he brought forward a bill to incentivize companies to market biometric guns, firearms that can only be fired by their rightful owner.
