Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has scheduled a visit to Newtown on Friday, according to a statement from Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman’s office. Giffords, who was injured during a mass shooting in Tucson in 2011, resigned from the House last January.
Her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, is also slated to be there. Kelly has called on Congress to take action on gun violence in the wake of the Newtown tragedy and others like it.
