Gabby Giffords Shoots Targets At Gun Range

Gabby Giffords Shoots Targets At Gun Range

10:45 AM EDT, July 2, 2013

It’s a surprising sight, Gabby Giffords shooting a gun.

The former Congresswoman visited a Las Vegas shooting range with her husband, ex-astronaut Mark Kelly. Giffords says she's is a proud gun owner but has not shot a weapon since the attempt on her life in the 2011 shooting rampage that left six others dead and Giffords grievously wounded.

She released this statement: "Some might consider me an unlikely advocate for gun rights because I sustained terrible injuries in a violent shooting, but I am a patriot, and I believe the right to bear arms is a definitive part of our American heritage."

She is pushing for stricter background checks for people buying guns.
