Gabrielle Giffords meets with Sandy Hook families

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Mass shooting survivor and former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has met with families of the victims of the Connecticut school massacre that left 26 people dead.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he attended the meeting Friday with the families and was impressed by their strength as well as the caring shown by Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly.

Giffords met earlier in the day with officials including Blumenthal and the town's first selectman.
