Giffords, Kelly New Book Promoting Universal Background Checks & Gun Show Regulations
On September 30 2014 gun control proponents Gabby Giffords, former Democratic Congresswoman from Arizona, and her husband puppet master Mark Kelly will release a book intended to be another step in their campaign for the passage of more gun control.
The book is titled, Enough: Our Fight To Keep America Safe From Gun Violence ( tiny.cc/twgnmx ) .
According to the NY Daily News, a portion of the book revolves around recounting the events of January 8, 2011–the day on which Jared Loughner shot and killed six and wounded fourteen, including Giffords, in a Tucson Safeway parking.
Giffords and Kelly present Loughner’s attack as proof of the need for expanding background checks to cover every gun sale–retail and private–in America.
Loughner went through such a background check in order to purchase the gun he used in his attack.
However, Kelly argues that expanded background checks are still necessary and he blames “the political class” for being “too afraid” to discuss and enact more gun control.
The book also argues for new laws against gun trafficking, new regulations on gun shows, and new rules for online firearm sales.
