Gabby Gifford's Husband CAUGHT buying AR-15!

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...mpaign=foxnews

Quote:
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.

This makes absolutely no sense.

If he has a clean criminal record, then he is going to pass the background check. So what?

If he does have a criminal record and passed the backgroung check, THEN it would be a more meaningful point he was trying to make.

Otherwise, this demonstrates absolutely nothing except that liberals spend money in idiotic ways.

This proves you don't really have to be that smart to be an astronaut.

That was the best part of the article. AZ has the background check down pretty good for the customer it appears.

If he bought this with intent to give it to the police department, that would be a straw purchase as defined by the ATF and the GCA. A felony. Explain to me why this is not being prosecuted as such.

Silly fool, gun laws and Obamacare don't apply to those with political clout...or to the liberal media bringing illegal magazines into DC for show-and-tell.

Guys, you forget the point, there are two type of gun control freaks:

1. Those that want to regulate your life while truly believing the rules don't apply to them.

2. Those that blindly follow #1.

Because a straw purchase has to be done for someone who is not legally able to make the purchase himself.

The officer receiving the weapon could be a dirty cop.

Could be. But he'd still legally be able to make the purchase.

I do not think this is true...If the form is filled out falsely, that IN AND OF ITSELF is a crime. If the firearm is a gift, i think there is a place to write that in. I will try and verify this, but I am 99% sure that with guns, knowingly filling out the form wrong is a crime REGARDLESS if the person can own guns legally....if they are not stated as a giftee at the time of purchase

If a firearm is purchased as a gift, the purchaser must indicate the intended recipient on the transaction record. Straw purchases of used guns are not illegal, unless the gun is used in a crime with the prior knowledge of the straw purchaser.
He did state that it was "used", but I'm still not buying his story.
