ROUGH CUT ( NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords, grievously wounded in a 2011 mass shooting, made an emotional plea on Wednesday for Congress to take action to curb gun violence in the aftermath of last month's Connecticut school massacre, urging lawmakers to "be bold, be courageous." Wearing a red outfit and speaking haltingly, Giffords appeared as the first person to testify before the first congressional hearing on gun violence since the Dec. 14 incident in which a gunman shot dead 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. "This is an important conversation for our children, for our communities, for Democrats and Republicans," Giffords, who survived a head wound in an assassination attempt last year in Tucson, Arizona, said, speaking haltingly. Six people were killed and 13 wounded in the incident.
