Skip to comments.Gabby Gifford's husband, Mark Kelly, testifies against AR-15s, and then goes out and buys one

Over the last few weeks, weve seen Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly using the emotion that comes from her 2011 shooting in Tuscon, Arizona to demand something needs to be done to stop gun violence, and that something (according to Mark Kelly) is the ban of assault weapons. He has testified to that effect before the U.S. Senate, as well as in Colorado. However, it appears that Mark Kelly is another shining example of the belief of the civilian disarmament folks that the same logic they use to try and disarm the general population doesnt apply to themselves.

I feel sorry for what’s happened to that family, but Mark Kelley CREEPS ME OUT for some reason. It’s not even politics, it’s something else. Can’t put my finger on it.....he seems SLIMY.
It’s the alien that hopped a ride in him back to Earth.
Kelly is like Mrs. Brady. Using the shooting of his spose to become famous and get their 15 minutes, starting non-profits that they can profit from.
He should be thankful that his wife survived, and take her and live a quiet life off her Government pension, but he wants to go around flaunting her for his own purposes.
He and Sarah Brady are major a-holes.
typical left wing hypocrite. I feel sorry for Gabby because its obvious he’s using her simply to get his moment of fame.
Actually, I feel like he is even CREEPIER than that. I get bad vibes about him
You can't make this stuff up.
Actually, people probably could make up stuff this irrational and anti-logical, but they'd be accused of not having finished high school, smoking too much pot, or both.
I think we're looking at yet another case of leftist extremist hypocrisy in action; I'm equally sure both President You Didn't Build That and some of the most blatant anti-Second Amendment bigots in Congress are protected by professional bodyguards armed with the very weapons they're striving so energetically to deny us commoners.
I certainly don't mean to advocate law-breaking, but must confess I find it perversely ironic the leftist extremists trust us "Neanderthals," "knuckle draggers," "bitter clingers," et alia not to live down to the names they call us. If we ever did live down to the names they've been calling us the past few decades, they'd be corpses in short order.
A comment at the gun blog asked whether Mark’s purchase could be considered a straw purchase because he bought the AR to “give” to someone else (the PoPo).
mark kelly is
a piece of
excrement on a stick
Of course, he only made up the bit about giving the gun away to the police after bloggers started calling him on the phone asking about the gun. Then, three days after the purchase, he posted his Straw Man Purchaser story on his facebook page.
I would love to see Mark Kelly on the stand, forced to tell the truth, which is that he bought this rifle so he could be grandfathered when the ban comes down, like millions of Americans are doing all over the country.
Of course, he feels he can be trusted with such a weapon. It is only the rest of us who cannot be trusted.
Just when you think that
They.ve gone as low as they can,
They surprise you.
He seems Drew-Peterson-ish to me.
Every person who believes in Central Planning sees himself as one of the Central Planners.
Maybe Mrs. Kelly told him one too many times that "He... Needs... To... Do... Something... About... The... Recyclables... Right... Now!!!" one to many times. I could see how that could get to a guy!
What... Too soon?
No surprise, I said he would
and damn if he didn’t
just like I said.
Sometimes you have to ask “how did Orwell know back in 1946 that his book (Animal Farm) would actually become the way of life in the Obama Bizzaro world of today?
“All animals are created equal. Some animals are more equal than others.”
Impulse buy? He didn’t have to wait for a background check?
He bought it just so he could turn it into the police!!!!! Frankly I’m surprised he could buy one at all because they are totally unavailable here in NJ at even twice the normal price. My brother in Philadelphia owns one and I offered to buy his but he said no. Oh, well.
Simple. He is an astronaut. That makes him an elite. Like a retired congresswoman or a billionaire.
Geeze give him a break already/S
When they are outlawed at his request, he expects to get a David Gregory Exemption for The Important People.
"Giffords accidentally shot to death by husband while he cleaned assault rifle -- Kelly says, 'See, I told you these things are dangerous!'"
Exactly. The elite believe they can be armed, just not the peasants.
I think the magic here is being able to walk into a store (practically anywhere) and walk out with an AR.
They’re rather scarce around here.
Typical liberal. Makes rules for the ordinary people but refuses to follow them himself.
MY MEDICAL APPOINTMENT
You may want to review this prior to your next medical appointment.
She said, Before we start, I have to ask you a few questions.
She said, Do you have any guns in the house?...
I’m thinking that Kelley was thrown into this mess and never wanted to be involved in the first place. I suspect he bought the weapon knowing that he would be outed as a hypocrite and suits him just fine.
My opinion is that the entire Democrat apparatus (sadly, including the astronaut husband) is blatantly using Gabrielle Giffords....she appears to not be in control of her own actions and words.
Kind of makes me sick to see...
Does anyone remember that hatefilled vitriol that was posted about Gabrielle by some LIBERALS after she voted for some kind of conservative measure (I forget the specific issue)? This was before the shooting, of course.
But in the days following the shooting, the media was pointing at Sarah Palin. And someone HERE on FR found a post a few weeks old by some liberal saying “My congresswoman is dead to me...” referring to Gabrielle and one of her votes on an issue where she sided with the Republicans.
Giffords then was “kept on” as a rep until she reached “pension eligibility” even though it was abundantly clear she was unable to do the job.
The whole thing is just exploitative and wrong.
One more thing: in the weeks following we heard all about how Debbie Blabbermouth Schmuck and Gabby Giffords were great friends. Did anyone ever do any pre-shooting research to see if this claim was accurate? Because the Schmuck is, sadly, the assclown who is in my district...and I NEVER heard her mention her good friend Gabby Giffords EVER. Just another big fat freakin’ LIE, it seems to me, that has become part of the Obama buttlicking media story.
Since Kelly has stated that the purpose of “assault weapons” is to “kill a lot of people very quickly.” I would like to ask him how many innocent people was he planning to kill with his AR-15?
But you don’t understand - his need is so much more important and greater than ours.
They are important people.
The rest of us? Not so much.
ROTFLMAO!!! Talk about bye bye credibility. I guess we won’t see Mark testifying in front of any more committess on gun control. :-)
I’m beginning to see why his brother volunteered for that year long mission to the ISS.
It looks as if Mr.Kelly has psychological issues to take care of and he should have never purchased that AR-15 If we’re to believe that he bought in only as an impulse purchase.
He states that he’s going to turn the weapon into the local Police right after buying the weapon.Now that’s the clincher right there.
He should never be allowed to purchase another weapon without getting a psycogical exam first.
According to Feinstein “AR-15s are only good for killing/hunting people. And retired military shouldn’t have them because they are suffering from PTSD.”
I see red flags all over the place.
Drew Peterson or Scott Peterson? Either way this Capt. Mark Kelly is a scumbag of the lowest form. Lying and trying to change the story is practically pathological in nature. Perhaps he needs to be put on the banned list from buying firearms if he couldn’t pass a mental evaluation, which by first look, it appears something ain’t right there, upstairs.
Who do you think put him up to this?
“Who do you think put him up to this?”
To what? Crusading for gun control, or buying the AR?
I was thinking something similar but thought that might be too crude to speculate on, but after his hypocrisy, I can totally see him doing this all for the sake of his agenda.
He purchased the rifle, and got his background check. The story continues, (paraphrased) “I will turn it over to the Tucson PD when I pick it up from the store.”.
I don’t think he has possession, yet.
How did this guy ever get into space?
He needs a psych eval.
You would think his wife would be completely freaked out that he bought any gun.
“You would think his wife would be completely freaked out that he bought any gun.”
Maybe she didn’t know.
May be either a prosecution or PR disaster here.
buying the AR-15
My point is that is one long lasting impulse.
I might as well not post my original comment because you said it WORD for WORD!!!!!! I too think that what happened to her was absolutely horrofic, BUT he is another story.
I can’t put my finger on it, but he is uber creepy and something about him seems not quite right & he strikes me as an opportunist of the highest order.
