Giffords' husband responds to Connecticut shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says the response to the deadly shooting at a Connecticut elementary school must consist of more than regret, sorrow and condolence.

Mark Kelly said in a post on his Facebook page Friday that the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School and all victims of gun violence deserve leaders who are courageous enough to have a ``meaningful discussion'' about the nation's gun laws.

Kelly says the families of the victims and the entire Connecticut community are in his and Giffords' thoughts and prayers.

Giffords was nearly killed in a January 2011 shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 at a meet-and-greet event outside a Tucson, Ariz., grocery store. She was left partially blind with a paralyzed right arm and a brain injury.
