Mark Kelly took his campaign for stricter gun control to Fox this morning, Politico reports, telling the network that it's time to enact universal background checks and that limiting magazine capacities "would have made a big difference" in the shooting that killed six and injured wife Gabrielle Giffords. "These are difficult problems in the United States of America, (and) we solve difficult problems," he said. "We can fix this." Of background checks, he continued, "74% of NRA members think (it's) a very reasonable thing to do." (More Mark Kelly stories.)
