The National Council of Jewish Women encouraged tougher gun control laws in response to the deadly shooting spree at Virginia Tech. “As the toll from gun violence mounts, we feel compelled to ask, how many more tragedies will it take to spur lawmakers to take decisive and effective action to address this problem?” NCJW President Phyllis Snyder said Tuesday. “NCJW supports laws and policies to restrict and regulate guns and urges Congress, the president, and state lawmakers to act expeditiously on this issue.”
