At the Jewish Council for Public Affairs Plenum this week, Hadassah was proud to co-sponsor and support a policy resolution that called for limiting access to the most dangerous weapons and ammunition, waiting periods, volume sales restrictions, background checks, diligent enforcement of regulations, efforts to improve access to mental health services, and a conversation about violence in media.
