Gabrielle Giffords plans book on gun control


Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is working on a book about gun control.

The Arizona Democrat and her husband, retired Navy captain and astronaut Mark Kelly, are collaborating on "Enough: Our Fight to Keep America Safe from Gun Violence."

The book is based on an essay by Giffords that appeared in The New York Times last April, when she responded to the fatal shootings of 26 schoolchildren and educators in Newtown, Conn. Giffords chastised senators who blocked gun legislation that included expanded background checks and a ban on assault weapons.

Scribner announced Tuesday that "Enough" is scheduled for release in June. Scribner previously published "Gabby: A Story of Courage, Love and Resilience," in which Giffords and Kelly told of the former congresswoman's miraculous recovery from being shot in the head in 2011.
