Gabby Giffords addresses Gun Control

On January 8, 2011, U.S. Representative Gabrielle "Gabby" Giffords, was shot in the head and critically wounded by a mentally ill young man. In total, 6 people died and 13 were injured in the attack. Representative Giffords received brain damage and subsequently resigned from Congress. Earlier today she addressed the U.S. Senate, which is taking up the issue of gun control. She is accompanied by her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly. This is a poignant and powerful statement. And it's brief.

  1. Jim, as we continue this effort to gain rational, comprehensive gun control laws in this country, I am reminded of an analogy from baseball. Nearly all of the great hitters were also high on the strike out lists of their times because they kept swinging at the ball. We must continue swinging at this ball in Washington until the homerun of gun control goes over the fence. Keep up the good work.
