Giffords Reacts To Senate Rejection Of Expanded Gun Background Checks

Giffords-Mad-angryFormer United States Representative Gabrielle Giffords says she is "furious" after senators on Wednesday blocked legislation that would expand background checks for gun buyers. 

Giffords is accusing senators who opposed new gun regulations of "cowardice," saying their decisions are "based on political fear and on cold calculations about the money of special interests like the National Rifle Association." 

The proposal to expand background checks fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance in the Senate Wednesday.
