On the eighth anniversary of the shooting of former Arizona Congressmember Gabrielle Giffords, Democratic lawmakers are set to introduce new gun control legislation later today. The bill will call for universal background checks for private gun sales. However, the legislation will reportedly not address an assault weapons ban. Congressmember Giffords survived the 2011 shooting near Tucson that left six people dead and 13 others wounded. She has since become a vocal advocate for gun control and is expected to join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for an event in D.C. later today.
