NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Wounded former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has met privately with families of those killed during last month's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

Giffords was left partially blind, with a paralyzed right arm and brain injury, when a gunman opened outside a Tucson grocery store on Jan. 8, 2011. Six people were killed and 13 injured, including Giffords.

She was accompanied Friday in Newtown by her husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal says he was impressed by the caring and generosity of Giffords and Kelly in visiting with the families.

A gunman fatally shot 26 people — most of them children — inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. He also killed his mother and himself.
