Watch: Gabrielle Giffords Speaks to the Senate on Gun Violence

Posted on Jan 30, 2013

The former Arizona congresswoman who survived a gunshot to the head said in her opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, “Speaking is difficult, but I need to say something important.”

Her struggle to get the words out only added emotional heft to her remarks. “Too many children are dying,” Giffords said. “Too many children. We must do something.”
