Giffords, who survived a 2011 shooting, testified before the panel considering an initiative to expand firearm background checks in the state, telling lawmakers that "the nation is counting on you." With Kelly sitting next to her, Giffords spoke slowly and briefly to the panel that was taking public testimony on Initiative 594. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
