Gun restriction advocates Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly at the 2014 TED Talk in Vancouver, Canada.

When Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed new gun legislation into law earlier this year, he said it represented a compromise that would both make Virginians safer and respect the Second Amendment. But critics called the result lopsided in favor of gun rights supporters, and one national gun safety group, an arm of the national group created by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly, is entering the fray. We talk with an advisor to the group and hear from political insiders and analysts about what it will take to bring about long-lasting change in the Commonwealth.
