Diane Sawyer Speaks Out About Gabby Giffords Interview (VIDEO)

Diane Sawyer reflected on her recent interview with Gabby Giffords, and discussed the former Congresswoman's continuing recovery and plans for the gun control debate.

Sawyer sat down with Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly for the two-year anniversary of the tragic day that Giffords was shot in the head. The shooting left six people dead and thirteen injured.

Giffords and Kelly spoke to Sawyer about their plans to lobby Congress and seek a "consensus common-sense idea,” which would include background checks to prevent the mentally ill from getting guns and targeting high-capacity ammunition.

"She's going to be up there walking as best she can down those halls and sitting in the offices and saying, basically, ‘look at me and tell me you’re not going to do anything," said Sawyer after their conversation.

The interview airs Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. ET on “World News” and on “Nightline” at its new time, 12:35 a.m. Sawyer previously spoke to Giffords in 2011 for the congresswoman's first television interview since being shot.
