She plans to highlight a voluntary agreement that closely monitors gun show sales in New York.

Giffords and husband Mark Kelly, a former combat pilot and astronaut, will tour the Saratoga Springs Arms Fair on Sunday with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman .

Schneiderman had worked with all 35 gun show operators in New York to adopt stringent new rules to track sales. Schneiderman also has a staff member at each gun show to work with operators to monitor compliance with the state's new gun control law.
