This most recent senseless act of gun voilence also garnered a reaction from a woman who knows the impact of such acts all too well.
Gabby Gifford experienced something similar to the congressmen on the ballfield yesterday. In January 2011, there was an assassination attempt that left Gifford with a severe brain injury. Today, along with her husband, Mark Kelly, they have become passionate advocates for gun control.
Gifford says, “I’m so sad. So sad.” Husband, Kelly, says, “I think it’s also an attack on democracy. Just like January 2011 at the Safeway grocery store – that was an attack on democracy as well.”
