Gabby Giffords to Respond to Shooting at 1 pm ET”

"But if we work together, we can stop shootings in the future", Durbin said. But they traveled to the Capitol building to hold a press conference in which Kelly called for more gun control. Your thoughts and prayers aren't going to stop the next shooting. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi invoked the shooting of Majority Whip Steve Scalise to oppose the bill last week, saying "if you can hear (a gunshot) you can run" away.

The Republican-led Congress had been pushing ahead on measures to loosen gun restrictions, including the gun silencer bill and one to allow people with concealed-carry permits to take their weapons to other states.

Republicans have been upbeat about prospects for legislation as they control both the House and Senate and have an ally in the White House in President Donald Trump.

Lt. Governor Ralph Northam, who has made stricter gun laws a central plank in his campaign for the commonwealth's top office, canceled a series of events with Giffords and Kelly created to highlight his differences with the Republican nominee, former George W. Bush adviser Ed Gillespie, on the issue of "the epidemic of gun violence".

Gun violence is "not normal, it's not inevitable, it's an epidemic that needs to be cured", Kelly said.

But no action was expected, as other mass shootings in Colorado, Connecticut, and Florida, and even attacks on Gifford and Scalise, failed to unite Congress on any legislative response. He has promised to "defend our Second Amendment rights". "It's really a time to find what divides us" and put it aside, he said.
