Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords are starting a tech council to help elected officials pass gun laws. "Now is the time to come together, be responsible Democrats, Republicans, everyone," Giffords said while speaking at the Lesbians Who Tech Summit in San Francisco.

Giffords has become a leading voice for gun control after she survived a 2011 assassination attempt when a 22-year-old man shot her in the head in Tucson, Arizona.
