Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) on Thursday applauded Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) for voting to consider gun control legislation.

Americans for Responsible Solutions, the pro-gun control group formed by Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, praised the Senate vote and also warned the lawmakers who voted against the bill. "Americans deserve better than the loyalty to the corporate gun lobby that you displayed today. With our help, your constituents will be educated and reminded of your actions today and in the coming weeks ahead," the group said in a written statement.
