Gabby Giffords' Husband Buys an AR-15 and then Makes Up a Bullshit Story About Why He Did It

A lot of twists and turns in this story from Breitbart.com. Shock, no one else in the media apart from Fox is bothering to cover it.

Allah has a good summary.

Mark Kelly, Gabby Giffords' husband, got caught buying an AR-15. Not a crime, of course, but certainly a strange purchase for a gun-control advocate looking to ban the weapon.

He then claimed he was buying it to demonstrate how easy it is to buy an AR-15.

Couple problems with this story:

1. He didn't actually buy it. The gun he intended to buy was on consignment, and there's a 20-day federal delay to check to see if the weapon was used in a crime. On the other hand, had he bought a new AR-15, he could have walked right out of the store with it-- thus demonstrating the point he claims he wanted to make.

The “local ordinances” that apply to the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm AR-style rifle required that the AR-15 be placed on hold for 20 days because it was second-hand. If Kelly’s goal was to show how easy the background check system really is, why didn’t he buy a new “assault rifle” so he could take possession of it immediately, thereby allowing him to finish the background check on day he originally walked into the store–March 5?

Seems more like he wanted to save a buck on a gun. Not really the sort of thing someone crusading to make a point usually cares about.

2. His claimed stunt makes no sense. Let's go down the list: Mark Kelly is...

... a Naval officer

... a Space Shuttle pilot and astronaut

... with a clean criminal record

... who is married to a frickin' Congresswoman.

What would his point have been, had he actually gone through the federal check (which he didn't, despite his claims)? That a law-abiding Naval officer astronaut married to a Congresswoman can pass a federal gun purchase check?

Of course he could. How could he not pass it? On what grounds would there be a delay for someone who not only has a clean criminal record, but in fact almost certainly has a US intelligence clearance of much better than Top Secret?

Does he have a record as a crack dealer we don't know about?

How does this expose a flaw in the system?

Someone joked: "He thinks they trust him with Space Shuttle but that it's a scandal that he could pass a quick background check to buy a rifle?"

It makes no sense.

What makes sense is that he just wanted to buy the AR-15 and is now making up stories to explain away a hypocrisy.

Fern's Law: Liberals actually believe none of the things they preach to you about.


Explanation? Cicero, the Semiautomatic Assault Commenter, speculates:

Maybe he's a malignant demagogue, but also budget-minded.


Another Question: Kelly now claims he intended this purchase to prove how easy it was to buy an AR-15.

If so, how come he didn't alert the media himself? Why was this leaked from an unfriendly source to an unfriendly outlet, Breitbart?

Did he intend to prove his alleged point in secret?

That reminds me of something I was thinking about a few days ago.

Given the left's propensity for sex - what if we claim the guns are our sex partners? By doing this, we can help reform the guns from their violent lifestyle. And because "ever since I was a young boy I felt I was a gun trapped in a man's body", who are they to put their stuck-up values on my sexual preference(s)?

If it becomes a lifestyle, they've got to let us run with that. It's the law and stuff.

And Gordy Cooper used to tell that storyabout how on his long Mercuryflight, he wound up with his dick caught in the personal relief tube because he stuffed too much cotton wadding from his suit in there to make it "soft like a pussy", as he always relates when he tells that story. That mission was actually supposed to be a ten orbit one, but it took an extra 12 orbits to get his Johnson un-jammed so he could "re-enter!"

Update: That policy ended a few years ago. I found out last year via an FFL dealer, as I was making a purchase.

They even had some .22LR, the first I've seen on the shelf anywhere in months, but it was going for $25.00 for a 50-round box (I shit you not).

You could look at this as some "do-gooder" idea to giving a donation to the police, but Kelly would have to be pretty f...ing stupid, when it's so much easier to send them a check .. besides the fact that the dun dealer is getting a cut.

193 And here is what I told Allah;


What Mr. Kelly has done is not only dishonorable, but ill-founded and baseless.

By his own admission, Mr. Kelly has become. in his own words, an
advocate for “gun control”. Whatever that means seems as though it’s
being defined by the day- and speech.

He has used his military background to garner “credibility” and
ultimately bring notice to his new cause- irrespective of wisdom or
facts. That's not only dishonest, but hypocritical, a quality which seems
to be quickly becoming his sine qua non.

Mr. Kelly is not a military firearms expert nor obviously an expert
on related law. He has never served in a combat MOS which required use
of a weapon. He has barely qualified for firearms training in the
military. Ergo, he has no credentials to speak from any of those
perspectives. Furthermore, it would be incredulous to attempt to use his
accomplishments as a means of gaining an audience under the guise of
providing a relative perspective.

Mr. Kelly is the husband of a crime victim. Period. A victim, by the
way, who was shot by a mental defective and deserves the harshest
punishment justice will dispense.

Summarily, that does not mean Mr. Kelly has the right or even the
knowledge to discuss this issue as a so-called “expert”. Yet he has
advocated to have people dispossessed of their legal firearms and
traipsed on the Second Amendment with his loose and hideously
contra-factual statements.

Mr. Kelly’s become the proverbial man shouting “fire” in a crowded
theater to play on people’s irrational emotions and fears.In this
regard, he does not only command disrespect, but utter and complete
contempt.

.308 is short action. Functionally, not much beyond that.

I dropped on 30.06 as my caliber of choice because it is awesome, and I can probably re-ammo at Vern's Bait and Tackle. But anything beats nothing.

275 I don't understand. How can Mark Kelly possess weapons in the same household as his brain damaged wife. I mean, isn't she disqualified from owning guns or having , ahem, access to them? Isn't California supposed to be the model now for removing guns from the homes of people who might have other's living there who aren't allowed to own guns? Even though the person owning them is legally allowed, they aren't legally allowed if someone else they know isn't legally allowed, aw crap its so confusing....

277 Totally O/T, anyone have an good recipe for broccoli rabe? Or not. Posted by: Jane D'oh at March 13, 2013 07:24 PM (UOM4

While I've mainly used it in minestrone-type soups, this isn't bad:

4 oz. orecchiette pasta

half a bunch of broccoli rabe cut into 2 in. pieces

3/4 c. chicken broth

2tsps. flour

1tbsp. olive oil

4 cloves minced garlic

1/8 tsp. dried rosemary

1 8 oz can chickpeas

2 tsps. red wine vinegar

1/8 tsp. salt or to taste

freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cook the pasta in boiling water for 6 minutes. Add the broccoli rabe and continue to cook until the pasta and b.r. are tender, about 3 minutes more. Drain and rinse and dry the pot.

Whisk the broth and flour together in a small bowl. Heat the oil in the pot over med.-high heat. Add the garlic and rosemary and cook for about a minute, stirring. Whisk in the broth and bring it to a simmer, until it thickens. Add the chickpeas, vinegar, salt, pepper and the pasta mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until the whole thing is heated through.

Serves 2.

Posted by: TexasJew at March 13, 2013 08:56 PM (lD8ju)

283
But the story, and I hope you read this, Ace, is that by Arizona law, Kelly was not allowed to purchase the hand gun. He would have had to have it sent to someone with a FFL in the state of HIS residence. And what state would that be? Texas, where he is a homeowner who claims a residency homestead exemption and is a registered voter in Galveston County, Texas.
So explain to me; when the Arizona law prevents an out-of-state resident from purchasing, and taking with them at the time of purchase, a hand gun, how the hell did Kelly walk out with a Sig Sauer 1911 knock-off?
Did Kelly lie about his place of permanent residency on Form 4473? What I.D. did he present to Diamondback Police Supply? It had to be an Arizona photo I.D. to prove residency.
I think Kelly, in trying to push his "for me, but not for thee" agenda is about to get his chops busted more than he ever dreamed.

285 I remember the auxiliary operator at a nuclear power plant (just above laborer on the totem pole) who dumped a barrel of caustic soda (lye) into the spent fuel pool.

When they caught him on the security camera, his excuse was "I just wanted to make sure that security was adequate."

The dude got five years in the pen.

I doubt our naval officer space shuttle jet jockey will even be doubted.

286 I think Kelly is right.
People as clearly mentally ill/defective as he and his wife are should not be anywhere near firearms of any type.
As a matter of fact, if she s mentally defective, how do they possess guns if any kind in their home?

288 Why 5.56?

Well, in the 80s my dad told me he wanted weapons in 7.62 in case the Russians invaded. Compatible ammo makes for easy resupply. The same mentality holds true today.

So . . . Do the Math.

289 If he gives up the AR its only because he was caught....and if he is as antigun as he professes to be why is he KEEPING the .45???
Shouldnt he turn them BOTH over to the police?
And is he legally able to have them in the same house as his mentally disable wife??
His hypocracy is staggering.

Posted by: Dien Cai Dau at March 13, 2013 11:54 PM (DmsGc)

290 He also claimed that he was going to turn it over to local authorities to get it off the street. This would have led to a felony since he would have lied on the background check where it asks if you are purchasing for someone else. Gatewaypundit had that little bit of insight.
