PHOENIX (AP) - Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband have launched an initiative aimed at curbing gun violence in the wake of the mass killing at a Connecticut school.
Giffords and husband Mark Kelly wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday in USA Today that their Americans for Responsible Solutions initiative would help raise money to support greater gun control efforts.
They say that it will "raise funds necessary to balance the influence of the gun lobby."
Giffords and Kelly last week visited Newtown, Conn., where the school shooting took place. They plan to discuss the initiative in an interview airing Tuesday on ABC News.
The initiative was launched on the two-year anniversary of the Tucson shooting that left her critically wounded.
