TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, talk about their continued push for gun regulation in the upcoming issue of Vogue magazine.
The couple has formed a political action committee in hopes of preventing gun violence and changing laws to require compulsory background checks for gun buyers. The PAC will also work to limit the size of ammo magazines and to ban the sale of assault weapons to civilians.
Kelly said "now is the time" to do something in the wake of recent mass shootings in Colorado and Connecticut.
Giffords and Kelly were interviewed at their Tucson home for the article, which appears in the March issue of Vogue that will be available on newsstands on Tuesday.
Giffords, 42, is shown lounging on a couch, dressed casually in a turtleneck sweater and holding hands with her husband.
Giffords was among 13 people wounded in a January 2011 shooting rampage as she met with constituents outside a Tucson supermarket. Six people were killed.
She resigned from Congress last year. Kelly, a former astronaut, has been by her side during her recovery.
They both attended Tuesday's State of the Union Address in which President Barack Obama called for stricter gun laws.
