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.

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.
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.
He is exercising his right to keep and bear arms. Good.
Pete Townsend was just researching Kiddie porn.
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.
Wise choices. Especially should another 'rat, Jared type, attack.
There is a constitutional way of changing the Constitution, it is by the amendment process.
If these people succeed in getting the 2nd amendment changed via statute, what in the world will keep some other "aggrieved" group from mounting a successful challenge against ANY other part of the Constitution?
Mr Kelly and Ms Giffords should just stay home, live in peace and let us do the same.
So he’s saying that astronauts should be prohibited from buying firearms because they’re unstable?
EXACTLY!...everyone seems to have forgotten about the mad tree elves that targeted and attacked them...
He might be a test pilot and an astronaut, but he doesn’t understand the law. I wonder what part of instant he doesn’t understand. If he doesn’t want the gun then leave it with the FFL on consignment.
The a-hole is an insult to a-holes.
Even though she’s not in Congress any more, she’s getting a government pension I’m sure (plus disability probably)... so they’re officially part of the “government ruling class” which makes them “special”. They don’t have to live by the same standards we low-life citizens have to adhere to.
Apparently he's a convicted felon or he has been adjudicated mentally incompetent and the NICS check didn't flag him. Sounds like we need better database laws.
Wonder if he'd consent to a full search of his premises and files!
Guy like that really needs to prove that he's honest.
What happened to Gabby Giffords was a tragedy. What her husband is doing to her now, dragging her around as a spokespuppet for his political ambitions is an abomination.
When your wife is injured you care for her, not exploit her. Mark Kelly would need years of rehabilitation just to work his way up to flaming POS.
Hmmmmm..... Gives gun away a few days after buying.
What’s that straw purchase law again ?
“BUT he was busted for the effing hypocrite that he is before he could play with his new toy.”
Heh, heh, have you NO pity, no empathy, no compassion nor understanding for this poor suffering man?
I didn’t think so. Neither do I.
So he was a straw purchaser?
“Then why buy it? Tucson PD doesn’t have the money to buy their own?”
Well interestingly enough they probably don’t. My younger brother is a cop with Tuscon PD. They are having funding and staff issues at the moment. A single free AR-15 isn’t going to do anything to alleviate that problem.
Actually, she was injured on the job ~ but so far she doesn’t seem to be any more disabled than she was before the injury. A good workman’s comp fraud investigator could probably bust her down in no time.
so is he buying these guns to terrify his disabled wife?
I wouldn’t care if he’s buying it to protect his wife. that would make sense.
you bad! you bad! you bad! gimme hi 5 bro!
HE’S NO DOUBT GOING FOR A POLITICAL CAREER NOW THAT HE’S A WASHED UP ASTRONAUT.
I can’t wait for the National Inquirer to do a John edwards expose on Kelly coming out of a hotel visiting a woman he’s having an affair with...I know its unfair, but that’s just the sense I get out of this guy.
Typical hypocritical lying sack o’shit Democrat.
The sheer hypocrisy should put this in Breaking.
I feel sorry for Gabby Giffords too, that her husband is using what happened to her for his own political gain..the moment after she was shot he went on TV to trash Republicans, to blame Sarah Palin for what happened..he is the ultimate schmuck..he parades his wife around like his own personal puppet repeating whatever he tells her to say
Could he be suffering from PTSD?
I think he’s working for Elon Musk now.
That tells you a bit about who’s paying for this campaign.
Well, why not? My Colt Commander is only 62 years old. My Mauser hsc is older than that and they both work fine.
Sounds like he's confessing to being a dangerous criminal who should not be allowed to own guns, to me.
What else could he be "illustrating."
What a Sarah Brady wanna be pimp!
How many video games did he play while training for space?
