Giffords hits the road for stronger gun regs

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) is embarking on a national tour to push for more stringent state and federal firearm regulation ahead of the November midterms.

Giffords’s latest campaign will take her from Maine to Washington state, four years after she was nearly killed in a shooting that claimed six lives in Tucson, Arizona. Her recovery has involved extensive physical therapy and painstaking efforts to regain her speech.

Now, Giffords will lend her voice at events in Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington state, where she will call for strengthened gun restrictions that she says will combat a scourge of violence against women.

“The number of women dying from gun violence has become a national shame,” said Giffords, a gun owner. “That’s why gun violence is a women’s issue.”
