Gabby Giffords, the former Arizona Congresswoman who survived a gunshot to the head in a 2011 attempt on her life in Tucson, comes to Orlando for a rally to increase funding for gun violence research. Giffords is joined by medical professionals and gun safety advocates such as Doctors for America, the League of Women Voters and the Florida Chapter of the American College of Physicians, among other groups. Attendees can hear experts speak on the issue of increased gun violence in America, meet with advocates and become more aware of what they can do to combat the problem.
