Capitol Seige Sparks Painful Memories For Some Victims Of Tucson Shooting On 10th Anniversary

Associated Press

Today marks the 10th anniversary of a mass shooting in Tucson that killed six people and injured more than a dozen, including former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

She was meeting with constituents in a grocery store parking lot at the time. A dedication ceremony was held today, though the event was not open to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Giffords and her husband, Senator Mark Kelly, have spent the past decade advocating for gun control legislation. Some survivors of the Tucson attack say the violence at the U.S. Capitol this week has sparked painful memories.
