 Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly, on their nationwide gun control tour, met former President George H.W. Bush this weekend.

Giffords and Kelly met Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush for lunch on Saturday at the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The get-together happened while Giffords and Kelly were in Maine for an Americans for Responsible Solutions event in Portland.

No details were released on the lunch, which was described as "social." Kelly and Bush had a longstanding personal relationship from Houston, where Kelly spent years in the astronaut program.

The Bushes visited Giffords during her recovery after she was critically wounded in a 2011 shooting in Tucson, Arizona.

There was no word whether the gun initiatives Gifford and Kelly are urging were discussed.

Are we supposed to be impressed or something? You can bet they did not talk about gun control unless of course it was about being able to hit your target. Giffords and her little sidekick need to put a sock in it.
