On the eighth anniversary of the shooting of former Representative Gabrielle Giffords, Democrats will introduce a bipartisan bill to tackle gun violence on Tuesday.

After Democrats took control of  the U.S. House of Representatives, a key plank of Democrat policy will see a push for increased background checks on those wishing to buy guns online and at gun shows.

Although it would seek to impose universal background checks for the purchase of firearms, the bill will not include any move toward an assault weapons ban.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who strongly supports changing U.S. gun culture, said that Giffords, who was shot at a constituent meeting in Arizona on January 8, 2011, would take part in the unveiling of the bill on Tuesday.
