Former Rep. Gabby Giffords Joins in Rutgers Unveiling of Gun Violence Research

October 25, 2018

Rutgers University will receive a $2 million grant to open a Gun Violence Research Center, school administrators and state officials announced Wednesday in a presentation that included shooting survivor former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly.

They appeared at the university with keynote speaker former Gov. James Florio for a discussion on gun violence that included a heavy dose of encouragement to vote in the upcoming midterm elections and oppose the National Rifle Association’s lobbying efforts against gun control.
