(PIX11)- Gun control advocate Mark Kelly says the proposed gun background bill being proposed to the Senate should include access to mental health records.

The goal is to keep guns out of the hands of disturbed people.

Kelly is the husband of Former U.S. Rep Gabby Giffords. Giffords was shot in the head back in 2011 in a mass shooting in Tucson.

He believes if mental health screenings would have been in place back then six people would not have been killed that day.

Kelly also says after such a tragic event like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook, the American people are demanding action now.

He believes over ninety percent of the country is pushing for a universal background check.
