Gabby Giffords' husband (Mark Kelly) buys AR-15
Breitbart ^ | 3/9/13 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 03/09/2013 4:34:25 PM PST by pacificpundit

Mark E. Kelly, gun-control proponent and husband to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, recently purchased an AR-15 (an "assault weapon," he called it)—which he now says he intended as an illustration of the need for more stringent gun laws.

Kelly reportedly bought the AR-15 and a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson, Arizona.

Various sources contacted Breitbart News once Kelly made the purchase, and after we began investigating the details surrounding the purchase, Kelly announced on his Facebook that he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he has yet to pick up from the store.

I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun store to buy a .45. As I was leaving, I noticed a used AR-15. Bought that too. Even to buy an assault weapon, the background check only takes a matter of minutes. I don't have possession of it yet but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do.

I fail to see what he intends to prove. That it only takes a few minutes to fill out the paperwork on a background check?

Then why buy it? Tucson PD doesn't have the money to buy their own?

“I fail to see what he intends to prove.”

1) He has too much money.
and
2) He’s an a-hole.

Most child porn addicts usually tell the court that they have it on their computer for "research" purposes only. Kelly is a sleaze.

Hammers kill more people than “assault Rifles” so it is a good thing he did not buy a hammer.

Is he admitting to having a criminal background? Otherwise, if his record is clean, then the system worked just fine.

Now you KNOW he was gonna keep these suckers just like I said he would back when he was ‘testifying’ against them. Said he would have him one in the very near future and voila. BUT he was busted for the effing hypocrite that he is before he could play with his new toy.

Is this the same Mark E Kelly that's named in the article?
Exactly what did he do where he shouldn't have bought a M4 rifle and a 1911?

To prove what???

He is exercising his right to keep and bear arms. Good.

Exactly what I was thinking. “I only had the child porn to make a point about how easy it is to find! I’m not a pedophile!”

They told us the Brady Bill background check was the stringent new law.

Progressive laws always progress to tyranny.

Let me get this straight.. We need “more stringent gun laws” so people like him won’t be able to buy them? What is he trying to tell us?

Maybe he should exercise his right to go after the left-wing nutbags that would target his wife.

He bought a 102 year old pistol? :-)

You know, I don’t want to say anything ugly about these people, especially considering one of their libturd bretheren shot the hell out of that woman, but I can’t keep my mouf shut.

Hey Asstronaut, stick to space travel and leave the firearms to those of us who respect them. And while you are at it, have a big cup of STFU.
