Former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords is attending a rally for "common sense" gun legislation in Philadelphia as the Democratic National Convention enters its second day.
Giffords' political action committee Americans for Responsible Solutions co-sponsored the Tuesday event in a park near The Franklin Institute. Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is among the politicians attending the rally.
Mothers who lost children to gun violence are speaking, and Giffords and Lewis will also address the crowd. Giffords was gravely wounded by a gunman during a public event in Tucson in 2011.
