Former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords is attending a rally for "common sense" gun legislation in Philadelphia as the Democratic National Convention enters its second day.
    
Giffords' political action committee Americans for Responsible Solutions co-sponsored the Tuesday event in a park near The Franklin Institute. Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is among the politicians attending the rally.
    
Mothers who lost children to gun violence are speaking, and Giffords and Lewis will also address the crowd. Giffords was gravely wounded by a gunman during a public event in Tucson in 2011.
    
Bernie Sanders supporters are to gather around noon for a rally near City Hall. A march protesting police violence against blacks is set for the afternoon.

Sen. Bernie Sanders is urging supporters to rally behind Hillary Clinton as the Democratic convention heats up in Philadelphia, but ardent followers seem intent on keeping his upstart campaign alive.
    
Hundreds of supporters marched for hours in punishing heat Monday to state their case while dozens risked arrest by climbing police barricades outside the convention site. Police instead only cited them for disorderly conduct.
    
Another series of protests and rallies was planned for Tuesday.
    
Sanders' supporters have expressed disgust with party leaders after leaked emails suggested the party brass favored Clinton over the Vermont senator during the hard-fought primary race.
    
But on the convention floor Monday night, Sanders said Clinton "must become the next president of the United States," based on her ideas and her leadership.
