 ここで4月18日のJapan Timesの記事を紹介します。
 WASHINGTON – If there were ever a moment that symbolized the difference between the power of public opinion and the strength of a concerted minority,
it came Wednesday when the U.S. Senate defeated a bipartisan measure to expand background checks on gun purchases.
 By the time the vote took place, the outcome was expected. But the result was stunning nonetheless, as was made clear by the angry reaction of President Barack Obama,
who had invested so much capital on getting gun legislation passed after the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, only to see those efforts crushed on the first real test.
 Obama’s description of the Senate vote — “a pretty shameful day for Washington” — captured the moment and summed up the frustrations
that many ordinary Americans long have expressed about Capitol Hill, which is that the system appears tilted in favor of blocking action on controversial issues
rather than enacting legislation to deal with them.
 第一パラグラフのconcerted とは協定を結ぶと意味でconcerted minorityとはNRA(National Rifle Association)を指すことが推測されます。
彼らの主張の拠り所は、アメリカ合衆国憲法修正条項第2条(the Second Amendment to the Constitution)に定められた「武器を所持して携帯する権利」
(the right of the people to keep and bear arms)は保障されなけばらないということにあります。

bipartisan measure 2党派合同法案
background checks  身元調査

Dear ESS members;

This is the announcement of the practice on June 1st
Gene; Discussion
Title; A turning point

I would like to discuss about 'a turning point' in our life.
Our life is often affected by a small thing, for example by usual talk with friends,
suggestion from parents or teachers, an impressive word you found in a book, etc.

I set several subjects for the discussion as below;

(1) What was the most impressive book, song, or TV program in your life. How did it change your mind?
(2) Who was the most influential person (including historical person) on your life?
(3) What was the most significant event in your life, enabling you to see things in a way you hadn't ?

Hoping everyone enjoy it !

Best wishes,

Munenori Numata
