Leading gun-control advocate Mark Kelly warned Republican senators Sunday that trying to block a vote on new firearms legislation that includes universal background checks could hurt their re-election efforts.
Kelly, a former astronaut and Navy captain, directed his remarks to Sens. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, among five Republican senators who have suggested they will filibuster a debate and full floor vote.
They should listen to their constituents and not get in the way of the debate, Kelly told Fox News Sunday.

WARNED them? Or what? Is that a threat of violence? Should he be “sequestered” and undergo some psych eval? Sounds like maybe he SHOULD be on the NO BUY list. For dogs or guns.
“Mark Kelly warned Republican senators”...what a douchebag!!
In my Navy career I found that 2/3 of fellow Os were good people, straight-forward, competent, and good leaders. The other 1/3 were good politicians and in it for themselves. Kelly belongs to that 1/3.
NOT a "leading" anything unless its AZZhole. Kind of makes one wonder how a man spends 24 years in the Armed Services, including astronaut time, and retires as only a "captain"?? Most men who are in the military that long would probably retire as at least a colonel. What's up with this guy??
Mark Giffords (maiden name Kelly) is a joke. What an embarrassment to the USN. Hell, he’s an embarrassment to the whole country.
Posting that info must have been an HTML nightmare. I have to spend 5 minutes remembering the code to post an image or an inbedded link. Good job.
It’s absurd. No one wants it.
They’ve got to stop.
Shut up Mark. Stop trying to pretend that you are a somebody.
So, Mark Kelly goes from a Navy Captain and Astronaut to being the new Sarah Brady.
Nice second career there, wuss.
He did speak about mental illness...but 99.9% of people with mental illness will never commit murder.
Why would a liberal oppressive want to help Republicans get re-elected? Recall, this guy is a massive liar.
Mark is no doubt on the Dem payroll.
I thought they already did.....
This guy really couldn’t be more wrong.
Time for someone to put this guy, verbally, in his place.
That someone isn’t going to be Cris Wallace. Nothing but softballs for the moron.
Well, Mark, in case you haven't been paying attention, the 'Pubbies don't seem to care too much about re-election. They're more concerned with appeasing zero and the Dems so I wouldn't lose any sleep over this!
Kelly is really enjoying his new-found celebrity, isn’t he? Looks like he’s another Schumer who just can’t avoid a camera if there’s one in sight.
And it won’t be an elected Republican either, since elected Republicans don’t criticize private citizens in public.
Only Der Leader does that.
