A Pittsburgh rabbi who led the synagogue targeted on Saturday in an apparent hate crime shooting that left 11 dead and six injured.
Chuck Diamond told reporters that the time has passed for mere prayers, calling on “politicians on both sides of the aisle” to “get off their rear ends and do something significant about it.”
He said it was “frustrating” to see the carnage of mass shootings “over and over again” without any change.
“What are the prayers going to do at this point?” Diamond asked. “We need to take action whatever that may be.”
