Giffords and Kelly launched their super PAC in January, two years after she was shot and less than a month after a gunman in Connecticut killed 26 children and adults at an elementary school in Connecticut.
The former congresswoman has limited her public appearances since the shooting, but Carusone called the trip energizing and motivating for Giffords.
Shes really passionate about trying to find a middle ground where gun owners and non-gun owners can unite around some of the beliefs they share, Carusone said.
Despite the frustration of not achieving legislative success, Carusone said the group wouldnt be deterred.
These things can take time, unfortunately, but theres a great sense of urgency here, because in this case, we believe that lives are on the line, she said.
