TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Gabrielle Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, is out with a new op-ed article about gun violence that was published today on CNN.com.

In it Kelly said he and Giffords are determined to get a universal background check system in place, closing a loophole that allows people to make firearms purchases at gun shows without a background check.

He said while it won't solve the problem of gun violence, it's a step in the right direction.

Giffords is still recovering from a gunshot wound to the head she suffered more than two years ago here in Tucson, while she held a public event as a Congresswoman.
