SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is set for her first visit to a gun show since she survived an assassination attempt in 2011.

The former Arizona congresswoman plans to highlight a voluntary agreement that closely monitors gun show sales in New York. It's part of her national campaign for stricter gun control.

Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly are touring the Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on Sunday with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

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.

GIffords was shot in the head while meeting with constituents in Tucson. Six people died.

   WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says she's "furious" after senators on Wednesday blocked legislation that would expand background checks for gun buyers.

   Giffords is accusing senators who opposed new gun regulations of "cowardice," saying their decisions are "based on political fear and on cold calculations about the money of special interests like the National Rifle Association."

   The former Arizona congresswoman's remarks were published on The New York Times' op-ed page Wednesday. She has become a vocal gun control supporter since she was shot in the head at a rally near Tucson two years ago.

   The proposal to expand background checks fell short of the 60 votes needed to advance in the Senate. An attempt to ban assault-style rifles failed as well, along with a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines.
