Mark Kelly, Gun Grabbing Husband Of Gabby Giffords, Buys AR-15

Guns for me but not for you.

Mark Kelly, husband of Gabby Giffords who used the Sandy Hook tragedy to put himself in the spotlight, wants to control your ability to defend yourself with a gun...but he's willing to by one for himself (Breitbart).

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.

...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.

Why is he not keeping it? Because the canary got caught?

Kelly recently went to Colorado to testify on behalf of a Democrat-backed "gun control" (we know that means "people control") bill.

Not only is Mark Kelly a hypocrite, he is a first-class creep.  He uses the tragic shooting of his wife to attack and slander Sarah Palin and the Tea Party as being responsible. Now, after Sandy Hook, he uses his recovering wife as a political pawn to play on people's emotions to get them and surrender their Second Amendment freedom.

Mark Kelly is akin to an ambulance chasing-lawyer, the worst kind of scumbag. Truth be known, he's just using these tragedies and his wife to make a name for himself and a possible political career.

Mark has served but I doubt he has served "on the ground", He may have served "in the air" but again not "on the ground." Mark has not had to fight nor defend himself in a military capacity with "small arms", I find him disqualified from the discussion.

He said he bought it to show how the background check wasn't burdensome. 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' dream has come true (since 1968) and you have to get the government's OK to buy a gun - 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.

Notice too, that when a citizen buys this semi-automatic version, it is an "assault rifle", but when the government (Homeland Defense) buys 6,000 fully-automatic versions, they are "Personal Defense Weapons". Indeed, some are more equal than others.
