Following the assassination attempt, Kelly and Giffords created Americans for Responsible Solutions, a super PAC that supports gun control. We sell 40 percent of our guns without a background check," Kelly said during CNN’s on Oct. "That means felons, people who are dangerously mentally ill have easy access to guns." The 40 percent figure was often invoked by gun control advocates who wanted stricter background check laws after the Newtown, Conn., elementary school mass shooting.Kelly’s source is a 2013 white paper that cites Cook and Ludwig’s survey as source, according to a spokesperson for Americans for Responsible Solutions.The survey was based on a small sample (251 people) and counted background checks on firearm purchases before the 1996 Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which required federal background checks on firearm purchases, was enacted.In nearly two thirds (64.5%) of cases in which a gun was present in a household shared by a domestic abuser and victim, the abuser had used the firearm against the victim, usually threatening to shoot or kill her.As described below, federal law prohibits abusers who have been convicted of domestic violence misdemeanors and abusers subject to certain domestic violence protective orders from purchasing or possessing guns.
