Skip to comments.Giffords, Kelly own guns while pushing gun control
Posted on 04/09/2013 8:12:38 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, keep pushing for stricter gun laws as they continue to own weapons for recreational purposes, including the same type of gun used in the January 2011 shooting rampage that left Giffords wounded.
However, the couples 9-mm Glock holds fewer bullets than the one used the Tucson shooting spree. Limiting the size of ammunition magazines is one of the goals of a new political action committee formed by Giffords and Kelly.
The couple was interviewed in Tucson by CNN for a segment that aired Tuesday evening.
Kelly was shown shooting pots and water bottles off large rocks in a desert area with Giffords watching from a porch.

Hypocrisy, they name is Gifford.
Not only do they own guns but they have high capacity evil terrorist-size magazines for them.
This is from the AP? The MSM? I’m shocked!
But don’t you know they are of the entitled class that are allowed to defend themselves, unlike us poor hard working serfs! Some animals are more equal than others, and politicians seem to feel that they are the most equal of all.
Wasn't it a single shot to the head?
Dont you know the liberal drill..THEY are allowed to have guns..the rest of us can’t..thats the liberal philosophy
The question no reporter has asked...
Does Giffords suffer from PTSD or is she on meds that might disqualify her and her husband from keeping firearms in their home?
Don’t forget the MSM, too.
“However, the couples 9-mm Glock holds fewer bullets than the one used the Tucson shooting spree. Limiting the size of ammunition magazines is one of the goals of a new political action committee formed by Giffords and Kelly.”
His Glock holds 19 rounds. The Giffords shooter had an extended magazine which held 33 rounds. The MSN and the state of New York and several others consider both magazines to be “excessive”. However, the wording in this article makes it sound as if Giffords gun complies with the restricted size magazines the Dems want.
Good catch, missed the subtle points.
And they were going to name a Navy vessel after this hypocrite..
Were it not for liberals I wouldn’t know what the word “hypocrisy” even means, let alone how to spell it.
“And they were going to name a Navy vessel after this hypocrite..”
The High Seas Grifter
The bullet in the chamber did her in.
And we’re supposed to be shocked at the hypocrisy of a couple of Leftists?
It’s only shocking when Leftists AREN’T hypocrites.
Now, let’s see if I get this straight.
The shooter hit someone with his shots. Gabby injured, the next victim injured, Judge Roll dead, the others shot or killed.
So we limit him to 10 rounds.
So now the shooter still hits 10 people with 10 shots, the same dead are still dead. Gabby injured, victim 2 injured, Judge Roll still dead, then the others.
So we ban the 9MM. The shooter now uses a 7 shot .45.
Gabby killed, victim 2 killed, Judge Roll still killed, the the others most likely killed.
Gun now empty, so he pulls out his second one like the Edmond OK Post Office shooter did.
So we ban all auto pistols. Now the shooter uses a .357 mag.
Gabby dead, victim 2 dead, Judge Roll still dead, then the others. Then he drops the revolver, grabs his second one and continues the carnage.
As you can see, for some reason these idiots think all hits with a firearm are done with the bottom cartridges in the mag while all the top rounds only make noise.
I think the hypocrisy is Kelly.
I don’t think Giffords is capable of making even irrational judgements.
Kelly works for Elon Musk now, so that explains it.
