MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will kick off a six week tour focusing on gun violence Wednesday in Minnesota.

Giffords is no stranger to gun violence. She was shot in the head in Arizona back in 2011 during a meeting in a supermarket parking lot.

The first of two events Gifford will host will be at the Minnetonka DFL Field Office at 3 p.m. It will focus on reaching out to the vocal majority of Americans who support gun violence prevention laws.

The second event will be in Apple Valley at 6 p.m.

The Vocal Majority tour will continue to travel through battleground states until Election Day.

    So if you’re shot in the head you automatically become an expert on gun control? I was hit by a car once. Does that make me an expert on automotive safety? You want to impact violence in this country? Start focusing on the real problem, gang violence and terrorism. Everything else is just leftist control propaganda BS.

    Why isn’t this liberal brain dead woman in Minneapolis talking about BLACK gun violence? The only violence that is endorsed by Democrats. Is she afraid of getting sprayed with bullets by blacks? Let’s look at black gun violence in Minnesota first then get back to me on lawful 2nd amendment gun owners.

    Gun Control = Gun Violence.

    Proof: Chicago, Detroit, Washington DC.

    Brain-damaged Giffords is being used as a tool by her leftist husband and the DFL. It’s sad that they manipulate someone like that.

  5. Concerned about this says:

    GUNS are not the problem, the thug mentality that uses guns to rob and murder people is the problem. Fix the root cause not the means… it’s a problem in the culture but you libs refuse to accept responsibility for your actions and blame anything but the ACTUAL problem.

    based on comments here, the “Vocal Majority” is not the people standing with FORMER congresswoman Gabby Giffords. Since she is a liberal, the fact that she has little to no support for her positions will only encourage her to try harder…. Meanwhile, three more Democrat voters were shot in Minne de toilet this week….-
