Gabby Giffords in New Jersey to push for gun control

(AP) - Former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords is visiting New Jersey to talk with lawmakers about how to protect women from domestic and gun violence.



Giffords is set to sit down Wednesday for a round table discussion. The meeting comes after Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation requiring convicted domestic abusers to surrender their guns.



Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly launched Americans for Responsible Solutions in 2012 and have traveled the country pushing for legislation dealing with gun violence.



Giffords survived a gunshot to the head on Jan. 8, 2011 when a man opened fire in Tucson, Arizona, killing six.
