File this under, “the Laws are for thee and not for Me”. Gun Control advocate bought the very weapon he is campaigning to have banned from the American Public. We applaud him for wanting to protect his family with some of the best weaponry available on the Market. The problem is, once he found out that these things can become public, he denied they were for personal use. He stated that these weapons were for, “show and tell” meaning he would use the guns as props when explaining their use.
I am sure that Kelly is well aware that there are dummy guns to use for such educational purposes.
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.
So once Kelly was caught, what was his explanation? I just wanted to show how easy it was to buy an assault weapon -
“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,” he continued.
Later, on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” Kelly said it was “important for me to have firsthand knowledge about how easy it is or difficult it is to buy a weapon like that.”

We have a bit of news for Mark Kelly, you don’t actually have to BUY a weapon to go through the background check process to find out if you qualify. But I am sure CNN and the MSM bought his excuse.
Like we said, good for him to buy such weaponry to protect his family, but he is a Wuss for lying about it.
