Skip to comments.Mark Kelly's Video Failed To Show He Was Denied Handgun Purchase, Too
Posted on 04/04/2013 10:50:14 AM PDT by marktwain
Breitbart News can now report that although Gabby Giffords' husband Mark Kelly successfully purchased a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun from Diamondback Police Supply on March 5, the gun store had denied his attempts to buy a handgun approximately two weeks before that.
According to sources, when Kelly first came into Diamondback Police Supply in February he tried to use a Texas ID to buy a handgun and was denied. Then, thirteen days later--on March 5-- Kelly walked back into the gun store with an Arizona ID that he used to purchase a handgun. He posted a video of that purchase made with a hidden "pocket camera" recording the transaction to prove that "background checks are easy."
With the proper Arizona ID, Kelly successfully purchased a Sig Sauer 1911-style .45 caliber pistol. He also tried to buy an AR-15 rifle, but gun store owner Douglas MacKinlay ultimately halted Kelly's AR-15 purchase due to concerns over whether Kelly could pass question 11a on background check form 4473, since Kelly had publicly claimed he had bought the gun to deliver it to someone else (in this case, the local police department).

Most people denied are "false positives".
Most likely, the store owner just told him that he could not use a Texas ID to purchase in Arizona.
Don’t be sorry. Kelly is a pathetic opportunist.
This guy is no James O’Keefe. However, he is a shill for the administration so he will be treated as a celeb for as long as he fights to strip citizens of their constitutional rights.
Wish they has just left him in space.
What a weasel son of a bitch. No wonder NASA had him as an assstronaut. No value added here, or there.
Where does he keep his brainaddled wife couped up when he’s off scamming out a new religion/career for himself? Has he confronted Sarah Brady yet about cutting in on her territory?
That would be “the affable mark kelley-giffords.” A disgrace to the Navy uniform and his NASA onesies.
Non-issue. The instructions on the form 4473 specifically say that you are to answer question 11a as "Yes" if you are either the actual buyer, or buying as a gift for a third party.

***1911-style .45 caliber pistol.***
Does this idiot realize that if the shooter had used a 1911 .45 with a seven round magazine that ..
Gabby would now be dead.
The second person probably dead.
Judge Roll still dead.
And several others still just as dead.
Then the shooter could have dropped his 1911 and pulled out another one like the Edmond OK, post office shooter did.
Now that America has scrapped its manned space program, we have cretins like Kelly slinks around, bored out of his mind. He needs to find a day job.
The creepiest thing was Kelly’s use of his brain-injured wife as a human muppet in his video. “Okay, buy a gun.” “Universal background check.”
Dude needs to be punched in the head.
We always knew that collectivists love to display dead bodies for propaganda, and now they’re using live bodies as well.
“The creepiest thing was Kellys use of his brain-injured wife as a human muppet in his video. Okay, buy a gun. Universal background check.
Yes, very creepy. Remember, *anything* done to advance the “cause” of progressivism, whatever that is defined as at the moment, is considered moral and correct to the left.
Sounds like a prime candidate for a one-way trip to Mars.
No kidding! I'm no expert on brain injuries but her responses sure seem to indicate that she isn't doing anything more than parroting whatever she is hearing.
It's pretty doggone sickening if you ask me.
He posted a video of that purchase made with a hidden “pocket camera” recording the transaction to prove that “background checks are easy.”
Yea, you jack wagon and attention whore.
It’s not suppose to be onerous and hard to acquire real property.
You are purchasing real property much like a car and it should be any big deal to acquire one or the other and it shouldn’t be difficult to fill them up either.
Stuff your moral superiority crap.
You let your dog off leash, at a beach in California that requires you, by law to leash your dog.
Your failure to control your animal resulted in the death of a protected species, a poor little baby seal.
I take my dog to the beaches where they are allowed and they are always leashed to protect the dogs, little children and limit exposure to a lawsuit.
Your dog is a killer and should euthanized. You should be fined and serve, at a minimum, community service.
You broke local laws with that little stunt and federal but, I guess astronauts are above the law, as I have heard not one word of any authority investigating you.
I don’t begrudge anyone owning a gun but, I am concerned that if you won’t maintain control over your dog that you won’t necessarily be a responsible gun owner.
Can’t even hear violins for your phony plight.
That’s exactly what happened.
You must be a resident of the state in which you are purchasing the gun, if it’s a retail location.
Otherwise, you can have it shipped to an FFL and purchase it in that manner.
If it’s any competent shooter you drop the mag, slam another one in the magwell and when that one empties repeat.
If you know how to deal with jams, such as a round not chambering properly, you can be back to shooting in under two seconds.
I showed an NRA instructor how to clear a round that didn’t feed properly.
He was going to take the gun to table and work on it. I told him to just slam the butt of the gun, twice, on the table in front of us and the round will automatically eject.
So he tries to remove the mag and of course he can’t.
I remind him again of my idea and he hands the gun to me and wants to see if this works.
I slap the butt of the gun on the table, the round eject, he raises his eyebrow and says he learned a new trick and we keep on shooting.
These murderers would kill even more people if they were even in the slightest competent shooters.
Thankfully they aren’t and less people died but, their programming was messed up and they would kept killing until they were stopped, no matter what.
