A lot of twists and turns in this story from Breitbart.com. Shock, no one else in the media apart from Fox is bothering to cover it.
Allah has a good summary.
Mark Kelly, Gabby Giffords' husband, got caught buying an AR-15. Not a crime, of course, but certainly a strange purchase for a gun-control advocate looking to ban the weapon.
He then claimed he was buying it to demonstrate how easy it is to buy an AR-15.
Couple problems with this story:
1. He didn't actually buy it. The gun he intended to buy was on consignment, and there's a 20-day federal delay to check to see if the weapon was used in a crime. On the other hand, had he bought a new AR-15, he could have walked right out of the store with it-- thus demonstrating the point he claims he wanted to make.

Too bad Gabby didn’t have a Glock in Tucson.
yeah pretty flaky
Too bad they didn’t pay attention to the nut job that killed her. Several people had sent warnings and basically, Gabby was known as being on his hate/hit list.
After paying for it of course.
This is the way things ought to be under the constitution and as the founders intended. When you have a RIGHT, you should not have to ask anyone's permission. You should be able to prosecute anyone who iterferes with your guaranteed right.
The corollary to Fern's law is:
And believe me, you are viewed as their subjects. Your typical rancher thinks better of his livestock.
Gun on consignment??
Following the Sarah Brady model of running a business from your home.
So what else was he into? Did he set up that young nutball to shoot his wife perhaps?
Really, it's time for the conspiracies to come flow out!
He’s an astronaut. not sure if he still wears diapers.
Its done all the time.
Kinda like the Obama administration running guns to narcoterrorists in Mexico resulting in the murder of thousands, including US citizens, and the administration lying about it, then citing no involvement yet claiming “executive privilege” to suppress details.
No, this is a local Tucson ordinance, not federal.
What about the part where he said he was goin to donate it to the Police dpt!
Left wingers should just mind their own business most times.
The World would be a lot less cluttered and we would not step in Bull S$$t all the time!
That's akin to robbing a bank, then after you get caught claiming, "Hey, Great Job! I was just testing out your security."
Is "Husband of Near-Marytred Female Democrat" considered a protected class? He's white, and male. BUT, he IS married to one of the left's current It girls. I may just sit back and watch the fireworks.
Part of me thinks attacking him for this might be the wrong route to take. Possibly we should be applauding him for seeing the light? Maybe he is starting to realize you have to look out for yourselves, not trust the system?
Either way it would probably bug him to have the NRA befriending him ;)
I gather you mean "killed her" in the figurative sense. Biologically she's still very much alive.
