Gabby Giffords testifies on gun violence

Ex-Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) made an appeal for action in Congress on gun violence, as she spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee at the start of Congressional hearings on guns and gun violence.

In a slow and measured voice, which made clear the extent of her injuries when she was shot two years ago in Arizona, Giffords told Senators to “Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you.”

Here is the video of the just over one minute that she testified before Senators.
