Kelly visiting Colorado to back gun-control bill

DENVER — Mark Kelly, the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, is scheduled to be in Denver on Monday to testify in support of at least one of the seven gun-control bills being considered by the Colorado Legislature.

Eileen McCarron, president of the Colorado Ceasefire Capitol Fund, tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/ZeaOZc ) Kelly will speak in support of a House bill that requires all private gun sales and transfers to be subject to a background check. The retired Navy Captain and astronaut has testified before Congress in support of gun control measures.

Giffords, a former Democratic U.S. Rep. from Arizona, was injured at a meet-and-greet when she was shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner in January 2011. Six people were killed in the shooting.
