TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - TIME named former congresswoman and gun control advocate Gabrielle Giffords one of its 100 most influential people of 2013.
The annual list was divided into five categories: artists, leaders, pioneers, titans and icons.
Jim Brady, the man behind the 1994 Handgun Violence Prevention Act, wrote the entry about Giffords in the icons section.
Brady compares Giffords and the National Rifle Association to David and Goliath.
"Gabby has all the qualities it takes, along with the extraordinary commitment, to show us what a David she is," Brady writes in the magazine that is on newsstands now.
