I don't know if this article goes in the weapon's section or the political commentary section or where.

So, I'm doing it here for the sake of argument.

Okay, Gabby Gifford's husband goes into a gun store (No, this isn't the opening line of a joke) and buys a 1911 Colt .45 semiautomatic handgun. He also buys a used AR 15.

Then he says he's buying the AR 15 to turn over to the police. Well, what else is going to say once he got caught buying all these guns?

No comment about turning in the 1911 .45 to the police.

The more people debate the Second Amendment issue, the more people buy guns. Obama and Feinstein are two of the best gun salespeople in America.

Now, does Gifford's husband help destroy the credibility of Gabby Giffords? Will Joe Biden sit Mr. Kelly down to have an erstwhile discussion about firing guns either in the air or through doors? Why does he have a different last name than Giffords?

No. This isn't simply a gun issue for and about guns. These are deeper seated issues than comparing ballistics and weapon reliability.

I'll leave it up to all of you to decide for yourselves what is at issue here?


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.

Oh the gun hating left will fall hook, line and sinker for his old "I did it to help" crap.

How many times have we heard this hypocritical garbage before?

"I downloaded the kiddie porn to show how easy it is and help the police"

"I pretended to be a fifteen year old on line and meet at the thirteen year olds house just to show them to be careful while on line"

Puh leeeeeeeeese!

So a guy who's life is dedicated to gun control bought one of the weapons he has testified to congress about for his own personal use? Ah, yeah...

So far around the internet it appears that the Second Amendment advocates are having more fun with this story than are the Wannabe Gun Grabbers.

The Wannabe Gun Grabbers wannabe ignoring this story.

Yes, it is embarrassing to them.

I think we can all agree that even when someone is caught buying an AR 15, an act that is bound to embarrass everyone on the socialist side of the aisle.....everyone who buys a gun should be a responsible shooter.

Even if that individual purchasing the embarrassing AR 15 has publicly denounced the rifle.

Even Gabby was against gun control for law abiding citizens....these people are pawns for the gun grabbers.


Her therapist had to right her statement on gun control? Cool.


Gun control Giffords once supported gun rights.[103] In 2008 she opposed Washington D.C. prohibitions on possession of handguns in the home and having usable firearms there, signing an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to support its overturn.[103][104]

Despite her stated support, gun rights groups have typically given her low grades on the topic. She has a D+ rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA)[105] and a D from the Gun Owners of America (GOA).[106]

However, subsequent to the assassination attempt against her she has expressed a strong gun control stance.[107][108]

Americans for Responsible Solutions Giffords created Americans for Responsible Solutions,[109] which is a not-for-profit organization and Super PAC whose mission is to "encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership by communicating directly with the constituents that elect them."[110]

The organization was announced on January 8, 2013 by Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly.[111] In an op-ed published in USA Today, Giffords and Kelly referred to the NRA lobby and sought to counter it by creating a lobby dedicated to gun control measures.[112] Giffords was a surprise witness at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence on January 30, 2013.[113] In a halting voice, she called for Congress to pass tougher laws on guns, saying "too many children are dying." Giffords is right-handed; her speech therapist had to write out her statement for her since her right arm was paralyzed in the shooting.[94]

Not surprisingly, her husband is eyeing a political career, possibly the spot she retired from.....it's all games.

I'm sure he can shoot.....he's an ex navy pilot who flew missions in the Irag war.

I just see it as an assault on the constitution....period.

So your argument is he was just shopping for a weapon he testified infront of congress he was against for himself because he wanted one?

What does it prove?

He goes and buys a rifle, what was illegal about it?

What point is he making?

Apparently he was proving "his" point that it is too easy to buy. I don't agree with his stance to begin with but really to equate this action to him really really deep down wanting a gun is absurd.

Why is it absurd for an American, specifically ex military American, to want a gun for self defense?

What you are saying is absurd.

We have the 2 nd amendment right to bear arms, he wasn't doing anything wrong except being a hypocrite.

Ah, because of his openly public stance on the issue it is absurd. We aren't talking about just some guy.

Public figures are ALWAYS getting caught with their pants down, so to speak.

You are being quite naive, I think.

Sure. A guy who's life is devoted to the issue of controlling guns like the ar15 is secretly desiring to own one.
Naive? Maybe, who knows? Not you.

So you don't ever see stories about governors who are tough on crime, soliciting whore houses or senators who are "for the people", that turnout to be pedophiles?

Ok....sure....put your head back in the sand, it never happens.

Dude, you have a reading comprehension issue. Yep, I see gay bashers who are right wing christian nuts eventually come out as gay - and? Like I said, naive? MAYBE. Usually it isn't the case. Guns are not whores and nowhere near the need of a pedophile. But keep hoping.

It's so funny when people who have a problem deflect it on others.

Why are you so intent on protecting him?

My point is, just because he said he was doing this to prove a point doesn't mean it's a true story, in my opinion he is just covering his butt.

He bought two guns, after the news story was published, he told this tale and turned the gun over. But he kept the pistol he bought.

Marinate on that a while.

And I am not a dude.
