As synagogue shooting trial approaches, anti-gun violence advocates meet in Squirrel Hill to turn poll numbers into law

The specter of the antisemitic mass shooting at a Squirrel Hill synagogue, in which a gunman killed 11 members of the Tree of Life, Dor Hadash and New Light congregations in 2018, loomed over the meeting of Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence. The anti-gun violence group formed in the wake of the shooting, and late April began jury selection in the trial of the accused shooter.
