Gabby Giffords With An AR-15

Last week, we reported on Gabby Giffords’ husband Mark Kelly purchasing an AR-15, a semi-automatic handgun and also a “high-capacity” magazine. When this news leaked out, Kelly claimed that he only purchased these items to make a point and that he didn’t intend on keeping them. His point being that it’s too easy to purchase guns, and even when purchasing a semi-automatic rifle, the background check takes only minutes. He used his demonstration as reason for getting rid of the gun show and private seller “loophole.”

Who knows why he really bought the guns. Maybe he really was trying to demonstrate a point. Or perhaps he just wanted to buy a couple guns for himself, and he got caught and had to play it off. Since we know that these “assault” rifles are like child pornography according to Feinstein, maybe his purchase would be like a public figure buying child porn to prove how easy it is. I think most people would be naturally suspect of any politician who bought child porn even if after the news leaked, he explained that it was just to “make a point.”

But it turns out, Mark Kelly isn’t the only gun-grabber in favor of arming himself and not others. After news of Kelly’s gun purchase was publicized, an October of 2010 photo of Gabby Giffords surfaced showing her holding an AR-15. A source provided the photo to Breitbart News who confirmed with Arizona law enforcement that the photo was authentic.

The source stated that Giffords wanted the photo to “toughen her image.” The anonymous source who provided the photo was there at the gun range when the photo was taken. He stated:

 “We were told she wanted to toughen her image. She asked to come out and she wanted to shoot a rifle. She had one of our guys out there to show her how to shoot an AR-15.”

 So, it was purely for political reasons that she had the photo taken. Her husband had his excuses for buying guns that he claims to be against, and Giffords has her excuses. On her Facebook page, she responded to the publishing of the photos, saying she was only supporting our troops and law enforcement:

 “My work as Southern Arizona’s Congresswoman frequently put me in close contact with some of the world’s most powerful and deadly weapons – supporting police departments, advocating for the Border Patrol, standing up for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan… As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I proudly spent a lot of time with our military, border patrol and state and local law enforcement…. I fought to make sure they have the weapons and safety gear needed to carry out their mission…”

 A mere 2 or 3 months after her AR-15 photo op, she was shot by Loughner with a handgun, and since then has been campaigning for an assault weapons ban and making sure guns don’t end up in the hands of those with mental problems. Unfortunately for her, the brain damage caused by her head injury has rendered her mentally and physically unfit to own any kind of firearm. Yet she and her husband say they are proud gun owners. If they’re really serious about keeping guns out of the wrong hands, they should be the first ones to relinquish their 2nd Amendment rights.

    They will never get rid of the private seller “loophole”, there is no loophole, the sale is private.

    • fliteking

      You are right. That said, ‘they’ will be offering plenty of ‘private’ firearms for sale if / after the legislation passes . . . in such times one would be wise not to buy.

      Just responding to or showing interest in such a purchase offer will see the otherwise innocent citizen stripped of his guns and rights . . . and his face on the front page news.

      Good job there Kelly! Go to the front of the line and collect that $200!

  • Kent2012

    another lie, easy to spot, their lips were moving…..

  • 7papa7

    What the left will do is force law abiding citizens go underground to get their weapons. We will follow the Constitution not some Marxist government.

    • WASP

      Guess who will step into that role of selling illegal weapons? The Mexican drug cartels. They have the smuggling and distribution network, they have the suppliers, they have the money, and they have the freedom (in Mexico) to do it. They’ll make even more money, so they can import their lawlessness into the US. Buy an AK47, get some free coke.

        Yes, that makes perfect sense. BUT, the “assault” weapons they will offer will not be limited to semiauto fire

    Who cares about “motivation” This isn’t acting class. He and his brain-damaged wife are traitors. Come Civil War II, they can look forward to a traitors fate.

    “for me, but not for thee…” the elitist philosophy. Our representatives have forgotten they serve us; they are not officials. they have placed themselves above us, so believing wwe should do as we are told is not a foreign concept to them.
    God help us…

    Hypocrites, democrats, the same thing.

  • http://www.survivingurbancrisis.com/ Silas Longshot

    Politicians in general, but democrats especially, are total opportunists, trying to score political points no matter which way the wind blows. But at the core, they are total hypocrites, dictating laws to us while exempting themselves. You can damwell bet that Giffords, if she was still in office, would have armed bodyguards after every citizens right to bear arms was “infringed” to the max.

  • CapeConservative

    Very definitely any firearms in the Giffords/Kelly household should be kept locked up. It is quite obvious that she would not pass any background check to own a weapon at this time. It is so sad to witness the politicians USING the deaths of innocent children caused by tormented individuals for one’s personal cause. From what I have read, the young man who shot the congresswoman had a grudge against her and had contacted her office many times to no avail. I DETEST people who use the pain of others to further their own agenda!

    Gabby Gifford is for sure Brain dead, and she and her Husband Mark also think that since they are special they should be exempt from Frekie Feinstine’s Banned Guns and Mags!!

  • Jim Chambers

    An equality in a mathematical context would be represented by the following equation, 2+2=4. In a logical context, Democrat = hypocrite, Democrat = liar, Democrat = socialist. I could go on but I think you get the point. Can’t argue with logical equations.

  • rwc2000

    Typical of liberals and congress in general to pass laws that they are exempt from. This philosophy has even infiltrated local police departments where cops can talk on cell phones and worse because they have exempted themselves from laws that were only meant for “ordinary citizens”.

    Do these people think we are stupid? He only bought them because he did not intend to keep them? How many such purchases has that man made?

    OK, he goes into a Police Supply Store (where I am sure every one knows who he and his wife are), buy’s a gun, a legal gun, needing no class III license as it is SEMI-AUTO, which, by the way is NOT an “ASSAULT RIFLE” as it is not select fire, Full Auto or shoots 3 round bursts. The gun he bought, an AR-15 is a 22 caliber and works the same way a Ruger 10.22 works, a Marlin 60 and on and on, as they are ALL “SEMI-AUTO’s”

    So, he wants to show how “easy” it is to buy a 22 caliber Semi Auto in a Police Supply Store.
    He fills out the forms, they do a background check and he get’s the 22 caliber Semi Auto. Are we supposed to be amazed”? Everyone knows who they are, even Gabby has pictures of herself holding an AR-15, it was OK until it affected her, that is always the case.
    So, back to the gun buyer showing us how easy it is to buy a gun when your wife has had thousands of hours on TV and a very well known figure as is her husband.
    Her husband uses THE EXCUSE that -
    “He used his demonstration as reason for getting rid of the gun show and private seller “loophole.”
    Does that make ANY sense at all??? He did not buy from a private seller or gun show, but from a POLICE SUPPLY STORE. I think he was showing that ALL of the POLICE SUPPLY STORES should be closed down and ALL the Military, Police, FBI, CIA, etc should do EXACTLY as they want us to do and that is “use a Pen or Scissors or if it is someone really violent to piss on them or sh!t in your pants for the really violent or scarey criminals.
    The bottom line as I see it is, Mark bought a gun, passed the background check in a Police Supply Store and is now complaining about “Did you see how easy I got that gun”, which leads me to believe he has something in his past to hide that was missed and should have a full investigation of his past or the problem is that he is in fact a Mental Defect and Should NOT be allowed to own a gun as he is a danger to himself and others, why else would someone, anyone, be making a big deal out of buying a legal product legally. It would be like me going to Wal Mart, buying a quart of motor oil and running around telling everyone “Look how easy I bought the oil. It is dangerous, an environmental hazard, can cause cancer if handled improperly, yet I walked right into the store, bought the oil with no identification and did not even have to sign any papers…, now how STUPID is that??? Buying a legal to buy and own product and making a scene about it. Yes, I can see Mental Defect as it is disturbing an adult would act in this manner, then when word got out he bought it, he made excuses like he has something to hide. I believe a FULL INVESTIGATION into his past and a Psychiatric evaluation is in order for this one, he sure seems dangerous to me!!!

    One of our state Reps (ex state trooper) did the same thing by going to the west coast to buy medical pot, then was dumb enough to bring it back and brag on how easy it was to get, he should have got his tit in the wringer over that, but guess what… it went under the rug somewhere
