The Tucson Ariz., Gabrielle Giffords shooting tragedy has gun control advocates lining up, clamoring to join the rhetoric. Calls for gun control are already being made.

Gun laws have to be examined, Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," according to USA Today. He said that "doesn't mean denying guns" but reviewing how they become accessible.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., has announced that she will put forward new gun control legislation. In a Politico interview on Sunday, she said, “My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow.”
