Gabby Gifford's husband signing the paperwork to buy a ,45 auto pistol and an AR-15 at Diamondback Police Supply in Tuscon, AZ yesterday.

Now he says he really didn't want it.

Well TGT, just for once why don't you bother to get the facts right before you twist something around.


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


see the difference yet?

let me explain it, he bought the weapon to illustrate how easy it is in America to buy an assault rifle, and because he had no use for it he did not bother to pick it up at the store

if you recall, many people were murdered along with his wife being shot in the head by a rabid right wing moron who was all fired up by right wing talk radio hatred of democrats, so much so that he came to her speaking engagement with the intent of killing her, just as Sarah Palin had subtly suggested days before on her website by showing Gabriella's head with cross hairs on it along with some other Democratic congressmen who voted for the ACA.

get it yet, TGT?

The producer for the fake Russian is dead. Killed January 6th, with a close shot to the head. Surrounded by his own guns.

He can't pick it up until the mandatory waiting period is up.

Same for the pistol.

Sounds more to me like a change of heart once he knew he was photographed.

And, his wife was shot with a pistol not a rifle.

He evidently believes that it's ok for him to own that.

He showed how simple it was to get a background check, so every purchaser should. You do have to wait for the AR-15, not the handgun.

The photo comes from his own facebook page.

But it's fun watching you spin the story.

Looks like the judiciary committee will vote on background checks next week. 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 yet but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do. Scary to think of people buying guns like these without a background check at a gun show or the Internet. We really need to close the gun show and private seller loop hole.

TGT is onto something. Common sense tells you that, if you can see what's happening.

By buying a rifle legally, he wasn't proving anything. Kelly is a guy we can trust with the keys to the Space Shuttle ( or at least we used to, before Obama out-sourced our manned-space program to Russia ). He's been checked out six ways to Sunday - and passed - by NASA. We'd damn well better be able to trust him with a small-calibre rifle, like an AR. And he knew that.

Seeing how he's proving nothing, making a point could not have possibly his reason for buying those guns. Therefore his change of heart had to have been for some other reason. Being "outed" is the best reason I can think of for Kelly cancelling the purchase.

The Sportsman Channel says it's deeply saddened by the shooting death in northwestern Montana of one of its TV hosts who traveled the world in search of big game and shared his adventures on his program "A Rifleman's Journal."

The company in a statement early Saturday said it will miss Gregory G. Rodriguez's "thoughtfulness, candor and dedication to encourage a safe and enjoyable outdoor experience for all." Police said Rodriguez, 43, of Sugar Land, Texas, died Thursday in the town of Whitefish when he was shot by another man in an apparent jealous rage while the TV personality visited the shooter's wife.

The photo comes from his own facebook page, Chaz.

When you come up with proof (or even a claim from the photographer) someone surreptitiously took his photo, then he used it on his facebook page to create a cover story, we'll take you and TGT's spin seriously.

Why are we worried about any of the reasons some upstanding, law abiding citizen might want a background check? Really, the ease with which you might purchase a firearm depends upon where you live.

You really want to prove something? Go buy an illegal full-auto from a drug runner, and post that sh#t up on your facebook page just to show how "easy" it is. Legal sales are a snooze fest, regardless of the weapon type or the motivation.

He's not against how easy it is. He's advocating every purchaser should go thru one, including private sales.

If you really want to prove a point, let's see someone like Charlie Sheen ( drug abuser ) or Jesse Jackson Jr ( serious head case ) pass a background check. That would actually expose real background check shortcomings. A U.S. Navy / Space Shuttle pilot legally buying a common small-calibre rifle proves nothing.

Again, Chaz, the point was to show how easy it is to get a background check and that everyone, including privates purchasers, should go thru one.

Ted Gundy, an 86-year-old World Wat [sic] II sniper, was awarded the "black hat," one of the highest awards of the marksmanship unit, during his visit to Ft. Benning, Ga. He got a few other surprises along the way.

He was presented with an exact replica of the rifle he used during the Battles of the Buldge [sic] and Bastogne, a 1903 Springfield A4 sniper rifle. It must have seemed like old home week as he hit the target - three hits for three shots - at three hundred yards - three football fields.

He was then given the opportunity to try modern equipment on a target 1,000 yards away. The Remington 700 is, according to the video, "one of the most accurate rifles in the world."
At 1,000 yards, for every mile per hour of crosswind, the bullet moves 10 inches. Just like with the WWII-era Springfield at 300 yards, Gundy hit three for three with the Remington at 1,000.

He proved that gun nut blogs would pick up on the story and try to blow it into something it wasn't... which is the context in which it was presented here... until it was set straight... after which the gun nuts back peddled, as usual.

ronically, gun nuts

wow. you stepped across that line.


Called the guys who fight for your freedom names. I could see a Canadian disrespecting your troops, or an American after Vietnam, but today?
You open your mouth enough and your true colors will show through.
Way to make your mother proud!




Well you can not deny that the deadliest snipper in American history was not killed on a foriegn battlefield but right in the good 'ol United States of Gunmerica.


The point is, this guy loves his American lifestyle. If he didn't, he'd move. But he isn't smart enough to appreciate the guys who provide it for him. If deep down inside he doesn't get that, arguments relating to that are equally void and non-nonsensical. It doesn't matter what he loves, he hates the hand that feeds him. He's freeloading, no different than an illegal alien.

So a veteran sniper was killed by another clearly troubled veteran and you as#@&%es want to spin that as a problem with american gun culture? What a bunch of dumbshits. You ought to be calling for better health services to take care of the people who defend our freedom to make idiotic statements like that.

My coworker,s son, after serving three tours in Afganistan unharmed, got hit by a drunk driver. And yet some of you remain silent on that claiming that kind of thing is "just an accident".

So go on and spin the sh#t however you want.
