RALEIGH — At about noon Sunday former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords urged a group gathered at The Pit restaurant to "Fight, Fight, Fight" and to ask federal lawmakers to expand criminal-background checks for gun buyers.
Across the street about 20 protesters with Grass Roots North Carolina held up signs saying “Guns Save Lives.”
Both factions said they were working on behalf of gun owners, but used different tactics to make their case.
Leadership of Grass Roots North Carolina, frustrated because organizers did not make public details surrounding Giffords’ and Kelly’s visit, on Saturday offered 100 rounds of free ammunition to the first person to identify the firing range Mark Kelly, Giffords’ husband, visited Sunday morning.
