TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, say the mass shooting in California and other violent episodes make the U.S. stand out in the wrong way.

The couple said Thursday that they mourn for the victims in San Bernardino and feel “anger, heartache and disgust” as with other mass shootings.

Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman during a 2011 shooting rampage in Tucson. Six people were killed, and 12 others were wounded.

Giffords resigned from office in 2012 and she and Kelly started a gun control advocacy group, Americans for Responsible Solutions.

She and Kelly said that though the U.S. is extraordinary, Americans need to recognize that tragedies such as the attack in California make the country “stand out in the worst of ways.”
