Gabrielle Giffords, husband pen book urging gun laws to save lives

(Reuters) Former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who was gravely wounded in a 2011 shooting rampage, has written a book with her husband "to rouse the long-overdue conversation" for gun control, a cause she has focused on since leaving office, her publisher said on Tuesday.
The book, "Enough: Our Fight to Keep America Safe From Gun Violence," builds on an opinion piece by Giffords published last April in The New York Times after gun control legislation stalled in the U.S. Senate, according to a statement from Scribner, the publisher.
Giffords in the piece criticized senators for failing to enact the measures, which she argued could have prevented future mass shootings, and she accused them of being beholden to the gun rights lobby.
