WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly are joining forces. They want politicians to do something about gun violence.
Since the attack that wounded Gabby, 12 others and killed six, two years ago today, there have been 11 mass shootings.
The Giffords, Kelly project is called Americans for Responsible Solutions. It’s kind of like a small opposite of the NRA.
The website says their purpose is to “encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership.” So they’re not necessarily offering solutions themselves. Still, at least this starts-up a dialogue.
Most people agree that something has to be done about gun violence. These two respected leaders may as well be the ones to give it a shot.
