Who: Americans for Responsible Solutions (founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly).

Where: Iowa and Arizona.

What's going on: Giffords' group is airing its first ad in the two states asking key senators to support gun control efforts. The ad features images of vigils at the sites of recent mass shootings in Oak Creek, Wis., Aurora, Colo., Newtown, Conn., and Tuscon, Ariz.
