Gabby Giffords’ Husband Buys AR-15

By Marion Algier – Ask Marion

Mark E. Kelly, husband of Gabby Giffords, was recently sited purchasing an AR-15… that’s right, an ‘assault weapon’ (that nobody needs) per the administration. Normally people would say, “So what?!? Good for him! Patriotic and sensible since they know the price of not being able to defend yourself, being in a gun-free zone or just normal for Arizona.

The problem is that Giffords and her husband have allowed themselves to be used as poster children for the left’s gun control agenda. The left parades them out as often as they allow themselves to be used, perhaps promoted and encouraged by Gabby’s uber-leftist House of Representatives friend DNC Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, known for her lies, smears, and manipulation.  After all, the Giffords Shooting was a perfect Rahm Emanuel-esque ‘Crisis to Exploit’ and began virtually immediately.

Because the thing is that they were not always pro-gun control, let alone gun confiscation. Let us remember that: Representative Giffords and her husband Mark E. Kelly were strong second amendment, pro-gun advocates as well as a gun owners even after she was shot, until they were co-opted by the cause!  In an interview soon after the tragic shooting of his wife, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, former astronaut Mike Kelly said he was not in favor of new or strictor gun legislation that would restrict the second amendment.  They were very much in step with the parents of the 9-year-old (youngest victim) of the same shooting spree.

Plus they live in Tucson, Arizona which has quietly allowed itself to be placed under martial law? – Hmmm… wonder if there is a connection?

The problem is that now that this information has been leaked, it leaves Mr. Kelly in a tough spot requiring either a little truthfulness or a lot of back peddling.  Seems Mike might have chosen to swim?

Breitbart.com:

Mark E. Kelly, gun-control proponent and husband to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, recently purchased an AR-15 mark-kelly-gun-store[1](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 a gun store in Tucson, Arizona.

Breitbart News received a tip on this when Neil McCabe, editor of Guns & Patriots newsletter, contacted us on March 7 and said:

Mark E. Kelly, made purchases which included an AR-15–sometimes described as an "assault rifle"–at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of March 5 at Diamondback Police Supply, 170 S. Kolb Street, Tucson, AZ.

According to McCabe, witnesses to the purchases claimed Kelly purchased "high capacity" magazines as well.

On March 6, McCabe contacted Kelly’s gun control group – "Americans for Responsible Solutions"–and on March 8 they replied that his message had been passed on to colleagues who handle press requests. Breitbart News then began investigating the details surrounding the purchase, including visiting the gun store.

Suddenly, Kelly announced on his Facebook page 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.

Testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee Jan. 30, Kelly had urged senators to restrict sales firearms based on their lethality–a common refrain with other witnesses that day, who argued that semi-automatic weapons, which chamber subsequent rounds as bullets are fired, and other guns with military-style features level the playing field against law enforcement.

Kelly and Giffords founded their own advocacy group to restrict gun rights, Americans for Responsible Solutions, in January. On its website, ARS wrote: “High capacity magazines are a deadly factor in gun violence.” A 30-round magazine is considered a high-capacity magazine.

The ARS website says: “Congress should act to limit the sale of high capacity magazines, which are not needed for hunting or self-defense, but have proven very lethal.”

Similarly, the ARS website says: “Congress should act to limit the sale of assault weapons.

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.

littlebytesnews‘s insight:

Yeah sure and why would buying one be difficult for him… it’s not like he has a criminal record, isn’t a high profile liberal and has been diagnosed with a mental illness lately… though liberalism should be defined as a mental illness in the DSM.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Before Giffords, there was once a guy from Wyoming (now living in Texas): Gabby. Gabby is a pseudonym for television (he wishes not to reveal his identity) and his real name was John David Morris. Morris has a mustache, beard, and boots and had a western look.
