+

+I’m+not+a+worrier+by+nature;+I+don’t+spend+much+time+thinking+about+how+safe+their+

+

+

While+action+towards+sane,+rational+gun+legislation+has+shamefully+ground+to+a+halt+at+the+national+level,+in+ April+2013,+partly+due+to+Pozner’s+efforts,+Connecticut+passed+the+strictest+gun+control+laws+in+the+nation,+ including+a+ban+on+the+sale+of+gun+magazines+with+a+capacity+of+more+than+10+rounds.+ You+can+view+a+powerful+four+minute+video+about+Pozner+at+http://video.forward.com/video/VeroniqueI Pozner.++The+video+begins+with+her+arresting+words:+“If+there+isn’t+some+type+of+change+in+the+national+ consciousness+by+six+and+seven+year+old+children+being+gunned+down+in+the+sanctity+of+their+school,+then+I+ think+we+have+lost+true+north+in+this+country.+Our+compass+is+broken.”+ +

In+the+weekly+parsha,+we+just+read+the+words+of+Joseph,+who+upon+revealing+himself+to+his+brothers+says,+“Now+ do+not+be+distressed+or+reproach+yourselves+because+you+sold+me+hither;+it+was+to+save+life+that+God+sent+me+ ahead+of+you.”+(Gen.+45:5)+In+a+few+months+we+will+read+the+words+of+Leviticus+19:16,+“Do+not+stand+idly+by+the+ blood+of+your+neighbor.”+And+a+few+months+after+that,+the+words+of+Deuteronomy+30:19,+“I+have+put+before+ you+life+and+death,+blessing+and+curse.+Choose+life—so+that+you+and+your+children+may+live.”+ The+extraordinary+availability+of+guns+in+our+country,+particularly+the+availability+of+assault+weapons+and+large+ capacity+magazines—whose+clear+purpose+is+to+kill+as+many+people+as+possible+as+quickly+as+possible—strikes+ me+as+one+of+the+most+lifeIdenying+elements+of+our+culture.++ +
