Two U.S. senators said they have reached a bipartisan deal to expand background checks at gun shows and for online purchases, as the Senate is set to begin its debate on gun control. The compromise is a step forward in combatting gun violence, says Rachel Laser, deputy director of Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. “The faith community has played a tremendous role in driving the gun violence prevention debate across history, particularly since the Newtown shooting,” Laser said. “We know that it’s our moral responsibility to ensure that the momentum does not die down.”
