Gabby Giffords touts gun control

Gabrielle Giffords, a former congresswoman shot and wounded more than two years ago, urged support for background checks on Wednesday.

She and her husband, Mark Kelly, spoke at a gun control rally in Tucson, Arizona, the same place where an assailant shot her in the head.

Kelly said his newly formed gun-control organization is sending a letter to U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Arizona Republicans, urging them to support background-check legislation.

      Woopidy do. You don't think that the mass shooting lately, of which she is a part of, has anything to do with that?? Would you rag on the Sandy Hook parents or the Aurora parents as having an agenda?? Get real.

    And in my view Gabby Giffords is no longer a victim she is a SURVIVOR! And she wouldnt have been had she not been a strong woman or a forever victim!
