Best Tucson Survivor

Gabby Giffords

Gabby Giffords has done a lot more than survive. She's made a miraculous recovery and, along hubby and retired astronaut Mark Kelly, jumped into one of the most controversial and intractable political debates in this country: how to reduce gun violence. Americans for Responsible Solutions has scored a number of victories for background checks and other regulations aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. But even with the epidemic of mass shootings, the fight for sensible gun laws is still a tough one to win. Thank you for stepping into the ring, Gabby. You continue to inspire.
