Update: Mark Kelly, Giffords's husband, talks about his wife: 'She feared she would be shot' (Video)
Updated: 7: 10 a.m.
For the first time since the Tucson shooting, Mark Kelly has opened up to the media, talking Tuesday night with Diane Sawyer.
He tells about how he broke down over the incorrect reports of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords's death, how Giffords still plays with his wedding ring in the same manner that she did before the shooting, and how he fears telling her about the deaths of the other victims. "How do I explain to her that a nine-year-old girl that was standing in front of you, looking up to you, and now she's gone?"
Near the end of the segment, Kelly said Giffords had told him she feared one day she would be shot, that someone would just walk up to her with a gun. Giffords, who owns a gun herself, supports the second amendment, Kelly said. But he wouldn't venture a guess as to whether her views would change in the aftermath of the shooting rampage. He said he doesn't think any political rhetoric caused the incident, and is willing to meet with Jared Loughner's parents. As the father of two daughters, Kelly said, he understands that they must be hurting now, too.
