    Default Mark Kelly gave Gun Control testimony day before buying an AR-15

    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 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.


    INVESTIGATING MARK KELLY'S AR-15 PURCHASE


    After Mark E. Kelly allegedly bought his AR-15, "high capacity" magazines, and a 1911 pistol at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson, AZ on March 5, Guns & Patriots editor Neil W. McCabe contacted Kelly's gun control group, "Americans for Responsible Solutions," to get a statement.

    When he reached out to them on March 6, instead of getting a statement, he received an email on March 8 saying his message had been passed on to colleagues within the organization.

    That was the same day Breitbart News began investigating the story in depth. It was also a day before Breitbart News visited Diamondback Police Supply in person to be sure the store was legit, and that they carried the kinds of firearms and accessories witnesses said Kelly had purchased.

    On March 8--two days after McCabe had contacted Kelly's gun control group with questions about the purchases--Kelly put up a Facebook post saying he was giving up the AR-15. Wrote Kelly: "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....I don't have possession yet, but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...0407080&type=1

    Ironically, after discovering Kelly's purchase of the "assault rifle" and "high capacity magazines," McCabe noted that Kelly's gun control PAC is pushing for "Congress [to] act to limit the sale of assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazines.

    As tragic as his wife's attempted murder was, the thing that pisses me off about this hypocrite is he is retired military. I'm guessing that oath he took to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States," now means absolutely NOTHING. Fucking traitor. Plain and simple.

    Man, I would've never guessed he was into guns. Just thinking about the soft "Pseudo Silk Kimono" and other delicate pieces, he didn't seem that kind of guy. Goes to show.

    He says he bought it to show how lax the gun laws are, but I'm not sure what he proved. He's retired military, a former astronaut, and the husband of a US Senator. If he's not qualified to own a gun, who the fuck is? Then he says: "the background check only took a couple of minutes." Well...how long should it take? Are they supposed to call your parents and neighbors, check your highschool transcripts and medical records, etc. like they do to work for the FBI? Isn't that an invasion of privacy for just wanting to exercise your Constitutional right?

    If he bought this to make a point, he didn't illustrate anything other than he's not he problem. It's the guns bought illegally or stolen that are the concern--they account for a much greater slice of the violence pie.
