Report: Gun Control Advocate Mark Kelly Purchased a .45 Caliber Handgun and an AR-15 at an Arizona Gun Store Recently: Kelly on Facebook Says He Won’t Keep the AR-15



BREITBART: 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. . . . Read More

Apparently, Kelly has now said on his Facebook page that he only bought the AR-15 to illustrate how easy it is to buy an “assault rifle.” I don’t think anyone ever claimed it was difficult for a law-abiding citizen to buy a legal gun in America, nor should it be. He says he will turn it over to police once he takes possession of it. No word on the .45 caliber handgun.
