CLBR Seg 2: Remembering Tucson’s Day of Terror

Segment 2: Remembering Tucson’s Day of Terror

January 8th marks the 3rd anniversary of the attempted assassination of Gabby Giffords.  It is a day I will never forget.

Gabby’s office had been shot at only a few months earlier, so I was not surprised when I heard the news.

I know Gabby and consider her a friend, what is tragic about this event is not just that it occurred but how little has changed since then.

How many more shootings will occur before the next anniversary?
