Tragedy was narrowly averted this week in Decatur, Georgia when a young man entered a school armed with a gun, 500 rounds of ammunition and "nothing to live for". In this instance tragedy was averted, but it brought to mind the shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School and reignited the simmering debate about the National Guns Laws. Rabbi Brad Hirschfield says that this isn't a time for division and that whichever side of the debate you are on, the best results are achieved by all sides coming together. "When it comes to the issue of curbing gun violence in this country, we need everybody at the table, and we need every possible solution on the table."
