Following the tragic deadly shootings in Las Vegas, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly called for distance from “political point scoring” and then took the opportunity to push for more gun laws.

Giffords, a shooting victim herself, looked on Monday, as her husband, co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions held a press conference outside the Capitol.

“We can distance ourselves from dogma and political point scoring,” Kelly said. Minutes later, the former astronaut insisted “don’t let anyone tell you not to talk about politics when we talk about guns.”

Kelly took the opportunity to push for universal background checks and increased government oversight and regulation for certain weapons.

“You can buy an AR-15 in a parking lot with no background check at all,” Kelly claimed.

“Does anybody actually believe that our gun laws are too strong?” Kelly asked. “Give me a break.”

"The nation's counting on you," Giffords added at the end, with a fist extended toward the Capitol.
