Giffords to attend gun show under NY sales model

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who survived an assassination attempt in 2011, is set to tour a gun show in upstate New York. It'll be the first one she has visited since she was shot.
She plans to highlight a voluntary agreement that closely monitors gun show sales in New York.
Giffords and husband Mark Kelly, a former combat pilot and astronaut, will tour the Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on Sunday with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE'-dur-muhn).
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.
