Giffords, Kelly continue to push for gun control

TUCSON, Ariz. — Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark
Kelly keep pushing for gun regulation although they continue to own weapons for
recreational purposes.

Kelly and Giffords were interviewed in Tucson by CNN in a segment that aired
Tuesday evening.

Kelly says for target practice, he uses a 9mm Glock with a magazine that can
hold 17 rounds.

That’s the same kind of handgun that a shooter used in a January 2011 rampage
outside a Tucson supermarket that left six people dead and 13 others wounded
including Giffords.

Kelly says the Tucson shooter’s gun had a magazine that held 33 rounds.

Kelly, a former astronaut, and Giffords have formed a political action
committee that seeks to limit the size of ammunition magazines and expand
background checks for gun purchases.
