The following is a transcript of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' speech to Congress on Wednesday regarding gun control as transcribed from the AP video:  

Thank you for inviting me. This is an important conversation for our children, for our communities, for Democrats and Republicans. Speaking is difficult but I need to say something important. Violence is a big problem. Too many children are dying. Too many children. We must do something. It will be hard, but the time is now. You must act. Be bold, be courageous. Americans are counting on you. Thank you.
