This Saturday, December 14, marks the anniversary of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. For many of us, the sadness has only been deepened since that tragic day by the utter failure of our representatives on Capitol Hill to take any meaningful gun safety action, despite the almost unprecedented level of public support. Faith leaders nationwide have taken leading roles in this movement, which has now gone far beyond our borders. Rabbi Joel Mosbacher of Temple Beth Haverim Shir Shalom in Mawah, New Jersey, joins Welton on State of Belief this week from Brescia, Italy, where he and other faith leaders from diverse religious backgrounds have traveled to raise awareness about the impact gun manufacturers based in Europe are having on the bloodshed in America’s streets – and our schools.
