NASA space shuttle Commander Mark Kelly, the husband of former Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords spoke at a luncheon in San Francisco on Sunday.

Kelly was scheduled to speak at noon to more than 2,200 community college officials gathering at Moscone Center, to say say farewell to retiring city college leaders.

Kelly commanded space shuttle Endeavour's final mission.

Kelly and his wife have become outspoken advocates of gun control after she and a dozen others were wounded and six killed in a shooting back in 2011.

Her injuries forced Giffords to resign from Congress.
