Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly will speak exclusively to “ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer about an important new initiative they are launching. The interview will air January 8, 2012 on “World News with Diane Sawyer” – two years to the day after Giffords was shot in a Safeway parking lot in Tucson, Arizona. The interview will also be featured on “Good Morning America,” “Nightline,” as well as, Newsmakers on Yahoo!, ABC News Radio, and ABC’s local affiliates.

"An important new initiative?"  Does anybody else think that this HAS to be about guns?

Please let this be an announcement that she is joining up with President Obama and Joe Biden to do something about guns. Please!

    Gabby and Mark met with Mayor Bloomberg and others in NYC on Wednesday. It might be they are joining with the 700 Mayors that Bloomberg has been heading on the organization against guns

    It appears we are going to see a good organized approach to new gun control that VP Biden and President Obama are going to do!!! Yea! It is so badly needed. Love having Gabby involved as she will be very influencial.

    I'm sure Sarah will be watching...

    1. And she'll be annoyed that she (SP) is not the center of attention.

    2. ... and she'll say something outlandish and goofy, anything to draw media attention away from Gabby and the topic being discussed - most likely gun control - and bring the spotlight back to herself. SSDD.

    The Tea Party people and people wanting more guns have no heart. The only way they will ever change their minds is someone they love gets shot. Then they will be screaming for gun control.

    There was a blip about this on television, Mark, Gabby, her service dog (yellow lab) and Diane enter,fades to just Mark and Gabby - Diane asks Mark "What's the one thing you want everyone to do?"... fade to black... and the announcement for the airtime and date play.

    I have a feeling this interview will throw down the gauntlet. I'm so glad Gabby and Mark are on board.
    Maybe this time, we'll finally get something done!

    When I do it right next time, I want a Mark Kelly husband by my side. He's been wonderful to and for her.

  7. I just read this on MSNBC and I cannot believe what this insensitive moron said:

    Newtown pol to Gabrielle Giffords:
    ‘Stay out of my towns!’

    Connecticut State Rep. DebraLee Hovey had a rather insensitive message for former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who visited Newtown after the horrific Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings: “Stay out of my towns!!”
    The six-term Republican took to Facebook to make the rant, arguing the visit “was political.”
    “The Lt. Gov was there, [Sen. Richard] Blumenthall was there and ALL political types KNOW it is courteous to let sitting Reps known when another political is in their District. So……There was pure political motives,” she wrote Friday.

    The posts were first reported and screen-grabbed by the Hartford Courant, and have since been removed.
