Hypocrite! Gabby Giffords husband Mark Kelly buys 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 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.

    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.
