Gabrielle Giffords continues charge for gun-control reform
PHOENIX -- Three years after taking a bullet to the head, former U.S. Rep Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona continues to recover and fight for gun control.
On the anniversary of the mass shooting at a Tucson grocery store that killed a half-dozen people and left 12 injured, Giffords wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times that ran Wednesday. In it she likened the push for gun-control reform to her ongoing rehabilitation.
"Our fight is a lot more like my rehab. Every day, we must wake up resolved and determined." ...
"We will fight for every inch, because that means saving lives. I've seen grit overcome paralysis. My resolution today is that Congress achieve the same."
