Skip to comments.Mark Kelly Shoots Glock 9mm With 'High Capacity' Magazine on CNN
Posted on 04/09/2013 11:54:06 AM PDT by servo1969
In an interview that will air on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 on April 9, Gabby Giffords looks on from her mother's porch while Mark Kelly shoots bottles and clay pots in the Arizona desert with a Glock 19 9mm. The gun is actually Giffords's, but Kelly shoots it and wasn't shy about admitting he had a 17-round magazine in it.
Ironically, 17 rounds exceeds the 10 round limit that was being pushed in the Senate in February when Kelly spoke in favor of banning them.
Nevertheless, after CNN filmed Kelly target shooting, he justified using a 17-round magazine for the simple reason that it wasn't a 33-round magazine, which is what the shooter used who attacked Giffords with a Glock 19 9mm in January 2011.
Giffords and Kelly sat down with CNN interviewer Dana Bash after the target shooting was over, and Bash asked Kelly if he had stopped to think about how "incredulous" people might be seeing him continue to get "his kicks [by] shooting a gun?" To this Kelly simply said, "Gabby used to like shooting a gun too, occasionally."

I am exceptionally weary of this person.
Laws are for the little people, not for our ruling class.
“They can be trusted with guns.”
...even when they shoot at big flat rocks.
All I can say is GUN-HO!
...stupid astronaut alert....
That’s her gun? Seems to me he’d need to have a background check before such a temporary transfer, per Chucky’s bill.
I am Really getting sick of reading about this "MEDIA WHORE".
I prefer the Glock model 30.
Please Mark Kelly, go away already. You and your wife are the 2 most boring people on the planet today. Getting shot doesn’t make her, or you, a hero or worthy of our time and attention. And her getting shot doesn’t make her opinion any more valid than anyone else’s. If anything it may be less so because it’s all based on emotional, not cold, rational facts. Just go away already you 2 tiresome bores.
Shooting bottles... another classless moron. Like he’s going to pick up all the trash he’s shot up.
Slick headed pansy, he redefines “astronaut” and gives it a terrible meaning. Oh, for the original Mercury Seven, well, maybe minus that ‘rat, John Glenn.
The way mark kelley drags his poor wounded wife around like a meat-puppet, I’d have no trouble adding “spouse abusing” to the “media whore” indictment.
Unless there is another big shooting these two money grubbing idiots will fade back into the woodwork (hopefully)
Why isnt his daughter in jail for her dog killing a sea lion? A clear violation of the marine mammal protection act which can be seen on video.
This fool doesn’t even obey leash laws...
You could take her to a gun show or a NRA meeting and she would still grin and clap on command.
CNN was showing Xacto knives a little while ago.
When will CNN show abortions?
Gabby Giffords is goofy looking.
Sarah Brady and Mark Kelley, OTOH, are among the lowest of subhuman filth with foul sewers running through their brains. The manner in which they abuse their brain injured spouses is unspeakable.
If only Mark Kelly had been at Safeway that day with Gabby’s gun, then things might have turned out differently.
Is Gabby mentally and emotionally competent to own a gun?
It's a bit classless to mock her.
We’re in Florida, and coming to your beautiful city next month.
We can’t wait to kill baby sea lions on the beach-
Huh? You mean, only Famous Astronauts get to do that?

Dear Mr. (Inkstone),
Thank you for your e-mail expressing concern over the incident involving the dog and the seal in Laguna Beach.
Our review of the incident showed that there was no violation of the applicable municipal leash law. As such, no citations were issued in conjunction with the incident.
We have referred this case to the National Marine Fisheries Service for investigation of whether there were any violations of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. That agency has jurisdiction over violations of the Act.
Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

Normally I’d agree, but her husband, who know better, is trying to ride this issue into a political office.
As such, well, class has sort of left the building a while back perhaps.
To this Kelly simply said, “I am a liar and a hypocrite ghoulishly using my wife’s tragedy to push a radical citizen disarmament agenda that I, being a somewhat intelligent person, do not actually support in order to start my political career.”
There's nothing, I think, that you could say about him that would bother me in the slightest. He's the lowest of the low.
I agree. What they are doing is like using retarded children in TV ads.
“See how fast they dive into that pizza...”
” This dogfood is so good, even the kids like it.”
Its classless to infringe upon my God given rights.
Mark Kelley is trying to do that. Rip him up one side, and down the other. Tear his head off and $#!+ down his neck. Whatever.
He deserves every bit of it, and I'll happily join the party.
Sarah Brady and Carolyn McCarthy deserve it as well, and for the same reasons.
But ripping on James Brady and Gabrielle Giffords, whose brains have been scrambled and who have little control over where they go and what they do, does us no good.
I don’t know... I see Gabby Giffords in tow with Mark Kelley at all these anti-2nd amendment events. Are you saying her politics are different from her husbands?
I’m in full and complete agreement. I do want to point something out - her district went without representation for quite a while. She could have resigned, and indeed had the capacity to understand what resignation meant, and did not resign.
Nobody should ever be shot in the head for no good reason (and there are good reasons). That being what it is, they are both whores, she and her husband.
She could have retired, and then wrote a book or something. They held on to the seat instead.
At this point, you have to ask yourself (hijacking alert:), “What would make a person spend $55 million on an election to an office that pays less than $200K?”
I’m not referring to Gifford or Kelley here, but anyone, like Corzine maybe, that would spend $20M to win an office that pays less than $200K . . .
What makes that exchange of value a relevant one, and what does that say about this system already being destroyed beyond repair?
Back in the day, I used to see James Brady in tow with Sarah Brady at all these anti-2nd Amendment events.
I didn't believe for an instant that James Brady had any politics. He was just a meat-puppet in a wheel chair. It was all Sarah, and she was and is tyranny-enabling filth.
Ms. Giffords is slightly more mobile than Mr. Brady, but hearing her speak leaves me convinced that she doesn't know the meaning of the words she's uttering. I feel sorry for her; she's being abused by a foul piece of feces in human form. So IMO, like Mr. Brady, I don't think Ms. Giffords really has any politics. The politics are all on Mr. Kelley ... and it takes a special sort of inhuman evil to abuse an injured and mentally incompetent spouse to further a political agenda of any sort.
You ask some very good questions ...
1. The $55 million wasn't her money
2. She resigned just after crossing the threshold required for a Congressional pension.
This is a good thing.
It shows them overplaying their hand and their overt duplicitous agenda.
He admits he gave Gabby the gun as a gift????
1. The $55 million wasn’t her money
2. She resigned just after crossing the threshold required for a Congressional pension.”
Not true. Meg Whitman (R) spent that much of her own cash trying to be Governor of CA, and Corzine spent $20M of his own cash to be Governor of NJ.
It’s one thing spending another magnitude on top of this number buying into a pro-sports team ownership group. It’s another to buy your way into a government job.
The Russians are right about us right now - we are headed down the same road they did by a different path.
Marc Kelley is an outright moron and I can’t believe he is an astronaut.
Who in the heck fires a gun with boulders as your backstop?
Moreover, he is still not being investigated for his reckless abandonment and loss of control, when his dog went off leash, in violation of state law and killed a baby seal, in violation of federal laws.
I put no stock in anything this asshat has to say.
I guess it’s okay if he gets away with murder but, the rest of us who haven’t done a thing get to be instant criminals.
The beach is clearly marked that all dogs must be leashed.
Laguna Beach California CODE

No person owning or having charge, care, custody, or control of any dog shall
cause or allow, either willfully or through failure to exercise due care or
control, any such dog to be upon any private property unless such dog be

THE OWNER of KELLY DOG did not exercise due care of control of their pet.
6.16.130 Disturbing the peace

keeping any animal, whether licensed or unlicensed, to suffer, permit or allow
said animal to DISTURB THE PEACE AND COMFORT of any person by any persistent barking, howling or crying, or to otherwise physically interfere with the reasonable enjoyment of life or property.
Hey officer doofus.
Would you be so charitable if the dog had mauled a child?
This is a marine sanctuary and they violated the law.
The brazen hypocrisy of the We’re Above Those Little People Laws reminds me of the scene in 1984 in which inner-party member O’Brien turns off the spying telescreen in his luxury flat before proceeding to tell Winston Smith about the supposed conspiracy against Big Brother.
‘You can turn it off!’ [Winston] said.
‘Yes,’ said O’Brien, ‘we can turn it off. We have that privilege.’
You mean like the Bradys?
One word: Graft. The fastest and surest way to become a millionaire is to get elected to Congress, where insider trading is 100% legal. You can propose a law that will kill a company, short the heck out of the stock before you introduce the bill, and clean up. They do it all the time.
Laguna Beach didn’t want to appear to be bullying the husband of a meat puppet.
In a way, I agree, but . . . when they set up their organization "Americans for Responsible Solutions" it was plain to me they were doing this to set up some nice six-figure administrative positions for themselves and milk her tragedy for all it was worth. The good part of this is that it siphons money away from the Brady Bunch, et al, who must be fuming behind the scenes over the new competition for money.
Amazing how these selfless idealists always mange to pull down a spectacular paycheck for their efforts. They never do it for free. Giffords and her Astro'Naught are the next generation, elbowing the Bradys aside in the scrum for gun-grabbing dollars
