Gabby Giffords' Husband Mark Kelly Buys AR-15

Via Breitbart and Weasel Zippers:

"Mark E. Kelly, gun-control proponent and husband to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, recently purchased an AR-15 (an "assault weapon," he called it)—which he now says he intended as an illustration of the need for more stringent gun laws.

"Kelly reportedly bought the AR-15 and a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson, Arizona.
"Various sources contacted Breitbart News once Kelly made the purchase, and after we began investigating the details surrounding the purchase, Kelly announced on his Facebook that he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he has yet to pick up from the store.  
"Days after making the purchases, Kelly wrote on Facebook:
"I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun store to buy a .45. As I was leaving, I noticed a used AR-15. Bought that too. Even to buy an assault weapon, the background check only takes a matter of minutes. I don't have possession of it yet but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do. 
"In February, Kelly told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace that lawmakers need to address "assault weapons." He said the purpose of an "assault weapon" is "to kill a lot of people very quickly," and he lamented that such products were "too readily available."
"Kelly has not commented on whether he will also return the .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol he purchased.

  5. Astronaut and veteran Mark Kelly is not a stupid guy. If he were going to buy an AR-15 for personal use, or whatever the hell everyone else uses them for, don't you suppose he'd purchase in secret? No. He purchased openly, in a place where he'd be recognized and under circumstances wherein he'd no doubt be publicized as having done so. Are you all so incredibly dense as to think he wasn't entirely aware of that and was doing it for his own purposes? Now he's gotten a lot more publicity for his cause. What's left of a story to support conservative views only has enough credibility left for people with concrete between their ears.

    1. your argument might be valid "IF" he had posted what he was doing BEFORE he did it, and not after "3" days ! Very suspicious behavior ! It was going to his gun cabinet !

    2. You speak as if you definitively know what was in Mark Kelly's head, when obviously you do not. Your comment and it's premise are a great illustration of 'incredibly dense'.

    And he bought one. Guess people should look out for this lunatic with a gun.

  7. Hey Mark - don't turn over to TPD, I'll gladly but it from you.

  8. This guy is an idiot. He had no plans to turn the rifle over to anyone except he was caught so now is trying to save face. What is really funny is how he laments the purchase authorization only took five minutes. Well, you Doofus, THAT'S how ling it takes when the system isn't swamped. What a moron! How the Hell he ever found his way back from space is beyond me. Oh, wait. I know. Gravity did it for him. He was just along for the ride.
    Mark, drink the Koolaide and just STFU. You are becoming a disgrace, not to mention senile.

  9. The only reason he hasn't picked it up yet is because his background check hasn't come back yet. He has to wait... This is just speculation, but why didn't anyone ask why he hasn't picked them up?

  10. He's donating it to his gun safe

  11. Straw purchase? So if Mark Kelly bought the AR15 with the intent of giving it to the Tuscon police doesn't that qualify as a straw purchase and isn't that illegal?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Mr. Kelly, the reason it was fairly quick on the background check is because you are a lawful buyer. Had you been a criminal trying to purchase it would have failed. Your attempt would have been reported to the feds, who as history has shown would do nothing about it. Very few procecutions are made ,fact.

  13. I know about guns, I was in the navy and NASA for 30 years. There were Marines on our carrier who had guns. I flew "combat" missions above Iraq at 25,000 feet. I could almost feel the intensity of fighting the Marines and Soldiers were waging in down there.

  14. ...uhhhhh ....yeah sure.....you betcha.......

  15. I don't see what he was illustrating by passing the background check, unless he successfully lied on the application & is hiding a felony conviction or mental illness.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybe you should have been there with a gun to protect your wife instead of riding around on rockets, and then she would have been saved. Don't try to take away everyone else's rights just cause you failed to protect your wife from a wacko.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I do not see what he is illustrating by purchasing weapons that are too readily available. Unless he is hiding something that should not have passed the background check like a felony or mental illness or a desire to kill a lot people quickly. Or maybe he just bought them for personal protection;)

  18. It's one thing to purchase weapons but they are worthless without ammunition. Did Kelly buy any ammo? If he did, then he is prepared to use them.

    1. But, according to the liberal agenda, it is the guns that kill people, not the ammunition or the psycho that pulls the trigger.

  19. Buying a weapon is one thing. Buying ammo is another. One without the other is of no use. Question is, did Kelly buy any ammo?

  20. Isnt that a "straw purchase" hes buying it with the intent to give it to someone else the police.

    ReplyDelete
  21. And the reason he doesn't have it yet; background check!! Meaning laws on the books work!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Buying it with the intention of turning it over to the Tucson PD. Depending how he words this, is it a straw purchase?
    Maybe they'll reimburse him, and it will be dealing without an FFL.
    But then, he's a protected class now so nothing will happen - just like David Gregory.

  23. And the reason he doesn't have it yet' BACKGROUND CHECK! Laws on the books work. hypocrite! P.S. nice cover story. I bought it for the leo.

  24. You can do just as much damage with that .45 as you can with the AR-15. How is that different?

    ReplyDelete
  25. An individual can do just as much or even more damage with that .45 as one can with the AR-15. The .45 semi-auto pistol can shoot just as many rounds just as fast and with even more knock-down power than the AR-15. The speed with which either of these weapons discharges its rounds depends solely on the speed of the shooter's trigger finger, nothing more. If it were me in close quarters, the .45 would be my weapon of choice. Luckily, I'm not a deranged mass murderer with a penchant for spraying lead on shopping mall food courts or elementary schools. If Kelly's rationale is that AR-15's were meant to kill, he must have missed the memo about the .45 semi-auto pistol. It wasn't exactly designed to help wound healing, ya know.

  26. What a totally bogus response. I can't think of anyone who would buy a weapon just to turn it over the the local PD.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I notice he is wearing a SPEED Channel hat. I guess he likes speed. In fact, he probably watches races of other people speeding. I bet he is planning on going out and speeding. I bet he is a speed-o-manic. There is no need for cars that are able to speed, going 2-3 times the legal speed limit. We should ban cars that can go that fast. Cuz cars that go that fast can be used to rob banks, and evade the place. These speeding cars regulary kill people. We should ban them. No one needs a car that goes 150 mph. Or....maybe that's all just his idiot logic on guns, used in the world of cars.

  29. He said the purpose of an "assault weapon" is "to kill a lot of people very quickly,"

    Someone outta tell this clown that handguns and other non-assault type weapons kill WAAAAYYYYY more than these "assault weapons" do. What a moron.

    1. Notice that when a citizen buys that semi-automatic gun, it is called an "Assault Weapon". However, when the government (Homeland Security) buys a fully-automatic version, it is called a "Personal defense Weapon". The hypocrisy just keeps growing and growing.

    2. So we can buy a personal defense weapon? Just wondered what I bshould look for. I certainly don`t want an assault rifle.lmao

  30. He said the purpose of an "assault weapon" is "to kill a lot of people very quickly,"



    Yet non-assault weapons kill way more than "assault weapons" do. Maybe this moron forgot that simple fact......

  32. I would say something but you all have that covered. He did not buy the ammo yet because he has not picked up the ar-15. as fa as turning it over to PD was not happening. He could have proved his point in applying for the purchase did not have to follow thru. He is just as concerned about our government as we are.

    1. I don't fully agree, Nicholas, the reason being that his point is how easy a neutral or bad guy can get one. We don't know that it would be easy for them to pass the background check, but a Navy pilot squeaky clean ASTRONAUT? Sorry, he doesn't win the argument.

  35. We here in Tucson are so tired of these two and the publicity that they get. They parade around with their book deals and all their speeches. Can't they just move somewhere else like New York where they have the gun laws they want. Leave us alone already. They are well to do with their pensions and all the money they must be getting for here injuries book land deals and all. He sounds like a nut and shouldn't be purchasing rifles or handguns period. These two are out of place in this town but are typical hypocrite liberal transplants with their idiotic prerogatives.

  36. To those calling this a straw purchase - Buying a firearm and giving it as a gift to a legally allowed person is not a straw purchase, nor is it a straw purchase to buy to resell. Straw purchase is to buy and give it to a legally-prohibited person in exchange for money. Just a point of clarification.

  37. But suppose the background check computer was down that day? They go down a lot, often on gun show weekends. The latest case: November's "Black Friday" sales promo.

    Now imagine that the liberals' wet dream has come true (since 1968) and the "universal" (not) background check is in effect. All a future fuhrer (he may be here now) has to do is declare a National Emergency, real or bogus, and shuts down the computers for "public safety" as Los Angeles did during their riots. Viola! An instant gun ban for those who need one NOW. It won't stop the criminals though. They will use that Emergency to prey on those gullible people who thought the authorities would protect them.

  38. So just how easy was it to...Legally Buy this rifle. And let me get this right.....he doesn't have the gun yet? Boy That was easy if your a moron! Hmmmmm, he past a background check, that was the legal thing, he has to wait for the rifle because that's the law that's wrong? Why?
    Mr Kelly must really not be using what is between his ears as a brain. It was all completely legal and please tell me just what is the point he's trying to make here!!!
