Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, share their impassioned argument for responsible gun legislation in the wake of Newtown and other mass shootings.

Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly count themselves among the 34 percent of American households that reported owning guns in 2012. Mark was a sharpshooter at the US Merchant Marine Academy and later an expert marksman in the Navy. When Gabby and Mark started dating, one of Mark’s gifts to her was a handgun. Gabby shot with her right hand before the 2011 Tucson shooting disabled her right side; now she’s learning to shoot with her left.

For the last two years, since the Tuscon shooting that nearly took Gabby’s life, basic questions consumed her family: Would Gabby survive the bullet through her brain? Would she walk again? Speak? Her miraculous and hard won recovery, though far from complete, has freed her and Mark to ask the larger questions that confront us as a nation: Can reasonable people come together to make our country less dangerous? What can we do to protect the right of law-abiding citizens to own guns for hunting and self-protection but ensure military-style weapons meant for the battlefield remain with the armed forces rather than armed individuals?

Enough takes you behind the scenes of Gabby and Mark’s efforts to enact responsible gun legislation, including the creation of Americans for Responsible Solutions, an organization designed to help change our laws and protect Americans—from strengthening background checks to limiting high-capacity magazines and saving women who seek protective orders from abusive partners with guns. Moreover, it provides an intimate window into the recovery of one of our nation’s most inspiring public figures and shows how her husband has taken on the role of co-advocate in one of the defining issues of our time.

    Huffington Post

  • “Alternating between a factual argument against gun violence and a scathing indictment of the NRA, former congresswoman Giffords and her husband, retired astronaut Kelly, take a long hard look at the fight to strike a balance between responsible gun ownership and Second Amendment rights…Written from Kelly’s point of view and studded with contributions from Giffords, the book makes a straightforward yet impassioned argument.”
