         Friends, I am not about to deny anyone 
their right to self-protection by any means they 
see fit. If someone had shot MY wife, you can bet 
the rent that I'd have purchased an AR-15 the 
very next day. My problem is with the hypocrisy 
of these people - the attitude, "all for me and none for thee." - JAQ

Gabby Giffords's Husband Buys An 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 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 
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 
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.

Testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee Jan. 
30, Kelly had urged senators to restrict sales 
firearms based on their lethality--a common 
refrain with other witnesses that day, who argued 
that semi-automatic weapons, which chamber 
subsequent rounds as bullets are fired, and other 
guns with military-style features level the 
playing field against law enforcement.

Kelly and Giffords founded their own advocacy 
group to restrict gun rights, Americans for 
Responsible Solutions, in January. On its 
website, ARS 
“High capacity magazines are a deadly factor in 
gun violence.” A 30-round magazine is considered a high-capacity magazine.

The ARS website says: “Congress should act to 
limit the sale of 
capacity magazines, which are not needed for 
hunting or self-defense, but have proven very lethal.”

Similarly, the ARS website says: “Congress should 
act to limit the sale of assault weapons.

In February, Kelly told Fox News Sunday's Chris 
Wallace that lawmakers need to address 
weapons." He said the purpose of an "assault 
weapon" is "to kill a lot of people very 
quickly," and he lamented that such products were "too readily available."

Kelly has not commented on whether he will also 
return the .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol he purchased.
