Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

“Today, my heart is with the 10 families who lost loved ones, survivors whose lives changed forever, and the Santa Fe community that was shattered by a school shooting six years ago. Schools are meant to be a safe learning environment for our students and teachers, yet our country’s weak gun laws have failed American kids, parent, and teachers too many times. I’m committed to keep fighting for a safer future free of gun violence and free of the gun lobby’s dangerous influence.”
