JUST IN: Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords addressed a U.S. Senate committee hearing on gun control, saying “speaking is difficult, but I need to say something important. Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying. Too many children. We must do something.”
Giffords continued: “It will be hard, but the time is now. You must act. Be bold, be courageous. Americans are counting on you.”
Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly and NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre are among those expected to testify.
