Mark Kelly (ret.), the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords," C-SPAN announced on its website in preparation for today's heating, commencing at 10 a.m. Eastern time.
"Also testifying are Nicholas Johnson, professor of law at Fordham University in New York; James Johnson, chief of police for Baltimore County, Md., and chairman of the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence; and Gayle Trotter, attorney and senior fellow at the Independent Women's Forum," the agenda summary reports.
