    Rep. Gabrielle Giffords met on Monday with constituents and fellow survivors of a Jan. 8, 2011, shooting spree that left six dead and 13, including the congresswoman, injured. Among those gathered in Giffords's office were Pat Maisch, the woman who wrestled the gun magazine from the shooter; Daniel Hernandez, the aide who helped stop Giffords’s bleeding; and Suzi Hileman, a constituent who was shot three times. Giffords announced on Sunday that she’s retiring from office to focus on her recovery.
