FILE - In this Sunday, May 5, 2013, file photo, former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, right, and her husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, look back at the crowd after arriving at a ceremony awarding Giffords the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award at the JFK Library in Boston. Giffords and Kelly are collaborating on a book about gun control, entitled: “Enough: Our Fight to Keep America Safe from Gun Violence.” The book is based on an essay by Giffords that appeared in The New York Times last April, when she responded to the fatal shootings of 26 school children and educators in Newtown, Conn. Giffords chastised senators who blocked gun legislation that included expanded background checks and a ban on assault weapons. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer, File)
