Mark Kelly Gun Control

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, want opponents of gun control legislation to get on board or expect a struggle in upcoming elections.“If we don’t have a Congress that can pass some reasonable gun legislation, which I think the public is asking for, overwhelmingly in some cases, with an expanded background check, if Congress won’t pass that legislation, we’ll find some new members,” Kelly told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, according to a transcript provided by the network on Monday.

Giffords and Kelly began a multistate tour Monday to advocate for expanded background check legislation, which was defeated in the Senate in April. They will be visiting Nevada, Alaska, North Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio, Maine and New Hampshire. Kelly said he’s confident that gun control legislation will pass.

“I am confident and Gabby’s confident — and we wouldn’t have gotten into this if we didn’t think that we could be effective in getting Congress to enact some sensible gun laws,” Kelly said in the interview. “It’s going to take a little bit of time.”
