MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Sami Rahamim has committed statistics about gun deaths to memory, folding them into sentences that make his case. He talks like a lawyer, not a 17-year-old high school senior -- no pauses or filler, no public trace of his pain.

On Sept. 27, Rahamim's father, Reuven Rahamim, was shot and killed along with five others at Accent Signage Systems in Minneapolis, the company he founded, by an ex-worker who recently had been fired. In the months since, Sami Rahamim has become a lobbyist for reducing gun violence.
