Mark Kelly, NRA’s Wayne LaPierre To Testify On Gun Violence At Senate Hearing

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly and National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre will testify before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence Wednesday, Jan. 30, according to the committee’s schedule

Kelly and Giffords — who was critically injured in a shooting in Tucson, Ariz., two years ago — recently started an anti-gun violence group. LaPierre and the NRA strongly oppose President Obama’s gun control proposals, announced in the wake of the Newtown shooting.

The Senate committee hearing is titled “What Should America Do About Gun Violence?”
