Transcript: Gabrielle Giffords: “Too many children are dying”

Transcript of opening remarks by former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords (D-Ariz.) at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence on Jan. 30, 2013: 

Okay. Thank you for inviting me here today.

This is an important conversation for our children, for our communities, for Democrats and Republicans.

Speaking is difficult but I need to say something important: Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying. Too many children!

We must do something. It will be hard but the time is now.

You must act. Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you.

Thank you.
