SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has made her first visit to a gun show since surviving a 2011 assassination attempt.

Giffords and her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly, toured the Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on Sunday with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Giffords was there to highlight a voluntary agreement that closely monitors gun show sales in New York. It’s part of her national campaign for stricter gun control.

Schneiderman had worked with all 35 gun show operators in New York to adopt stringent new rules to track sales.

Schneiderman also has a staff member at each gun show to work with operators to monitor compliance with the state’s new gun control law.

Giffords was shot in the head while meeting with constituents in Tucson. Six people died.
