Gabby Giffords Speaks to the Senate About Gun Control (Pictures)

January 30, 2013

Advocates for gun safety and the National Rifle Association faced off at a Senate Judiciary hearing, "What Should America Do About Gun Violence?"

Both sides gave testimony supporting their positions during the hearing on Jan. 30, 2013. Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a gun-violence victim, made a surprise appearance to give her testimony.
