All four senators have spoken in favor of stronger gun control laws during their time in office. Harris most recently vowed sweeping executive action on gun control if she is elected president, weeks after revealing that she herself owns a gun for personal protection.
Giffords, now the leader of a prominent gun control advocacy group that bears her name, has spent her years out of office fundraising and advocating for stronger gun control laws.
Her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly (D), is also running for Senate in Arizona. His campaign pulled in $4 million in the first quarter of 2019.
