Skip to comments.Mark Kelly’s story on AR-15 purchase prompts skeptical open letter

Dear Capt. Kelly,
Houston, we have a problem: Your story makes no sense.
Youre against rifles like the semiautomatic AR-15, which look like weapons of war, when you know full well the military doesnt use them, but instead uses the select fire-capable M16. Yet you go to a dealer to buy a .45, a sidearm, which was actually, in your words, designed for the military. Im not following your logic here.
You say as you were leaving the gun store, you noticed a used AR-15 and bought that, too. You then complain about your background check, and use that to attack private sales which dont undergo background checks. Im not following your logic here.
You say you have not taken possession of the gun yet, but when you do will turn it over to the Tucson Police. Why? If you wanted to buy them a gun, you could have just given them the money. If you wanted to prove how easy undocumented sales are, you could have bought one privately and taken possession of it instead of going through the trouble of proving youre not a prohibited person. Im not following your logic here.
The most troubling thing is, you didnt admit that was your intent until after your purchase had been reported by alternative media and people were commenting on what appears to be hypocrisy of the highest order, compounded with implausible excuse-making. You then told CNN that making a Facebook announcement was something you and your people had a plan for, but you didnt know when, like its some kind of big decision you have to consult a team on. Im not following your logic here.

The left is used to being given a pass on everything.
Silly Proles, don’t you know that those silly laws do not apply to your betters?
liberalism can’t exist without hypocrisy
their #1 rule is “It’s okay when we do it”
Kelly is a freeloading gold digger in search of a free ride through life.
Why didn’t he pick up the gun when he bought it? Was he having the dealer accessorise it?
I thought the police could get fully automatic weapons,so a semi would just end up being destroyed
He reminds me of the child pornography collectors who try to claim they’re merely “researching” child pornography.
Anyone an operating brain cell knows this guy is full of more crap than a Christmas goose. Buy an AR-15 for the purpose of giving it to police ... right. Try again, sport.
Buying a gun with intent to turn around and give it to someone else like that is a straw purchase and a felony...
Maybe him and that 30-round magazine news-tard can share a jail cell for their Federally mandated minimum ten yer sentence.
“I” only bought PLAYBOY (45 years ago) to read the articles! ;-D
Maybe he’s planning to run against Ashley Judd in the Ky Dem senatorial primary....
I would like to see the conservative press delve into how Jerald Loughner got the gun in the first place. Loughner was known to the police, he was scaring people at his school. Why did the Democrat sheriff give him a license to buy a gun? And why did the same sheriff start blaming the Republicans just hours after the shooting? Was he trying to divert blame away from himself? Why did the Democrats bring up Sarah Palin’s website because of the innocent target pictures that she used? And why doesn’t Gabriel Gifford’s husband not take his fellow Democrat the sheriff of Tucson to task for giving a gun license to an obvious pyscho? Where is the national Democratic party on all of this?
That’s because most liberals profile with anti-social tendencies and many are genuinely sociopathic.
i have never met anyone who has bought something legal they don’t believe in, just so they could turn it into the police.
they do not exist. kelly is lying and he’s a libtard for thinking we’re dumb enough to believe his lies.
Kelly struck me as a slimeball from day one. But for the fact that he was an astronaut he would have has zero chance with Giffords. Correct me if I’m wrong... Didn’t he fly a shuttle mission after she was shot? Anyone? Anyone?
“something you and your people had a plan for, but you didnt know when, like its some kind of big decision you have to consult a team on.”
What kind of plan? Like maybe a staged, public mass shooting attempt? Seems to be the latest rage.......
