Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), laid out four proposals for curbing gun violence Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
First, fixed on background checks. Zero holes and hour laws making a mockery of the background checks in our system. Congress should close the private sales loophole and the dangers people entered into that system.
Second, remove the limitations on collecting data and conducting scientific research on gun violence.
Enact a tough federal gun trafficking statute, this is really important.
Finally, let's have a careful and civil conversation about the lethality of firearms we permit to be legally bought and sold in this country.
"Our rights are paramount but our responsibilities are serious," Kelly said. "As a nation, we're not take responsibility for the gun rights that our founding fathers have conferred upon us."
