Mark Kelly, Hypocrite

If you're not familiar with the name Mark Kelly, that's okay.  I wasn't familiar with it either, but he's the husband of former US Representative Gabby Giffords who was horrifically attacked and shot.  Her husband Mark Kelly is an outspoken gun critic, lobbying and speaking on the need to ban AR15 rifles and high capacity magazines.

It seems Breitbart caught him red-handed, buying an AR15, and high capacity magazines.

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.
So, after speaking against the most popular rifle in the US today, he runs out and buys one, along with several standard magazines. Maybe he's becoming and enthusiast? Not likely. Shortly after being caught red-handed, he posted on Facebook:
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 of it yet but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do.
Uuuh, yeah, as soon as you pick it up, you're turning it over to the Tuscon PD? For what?  You've got money to burn?  Or, are you simply embarrassed?  The Facebook answer is purely bullshit, reminiscent of a teenage boy caught with his first beer.  We know you wanted the AR rifle, were drawn by the allure of a very common firearm.

It's okay, Mark, embrace freedom.  With your new .45 and your new AR, you've got two-thirds of a 3-gun match.  Get yourself a shotgun, and find a range that will teach you to shoot them.  You'll meet wonderfully nice people who will show you how to get the most out of your new weapons.  They'll teach you gun safety, instill in you the joy of being with like-minded people, and help you come fully into Constitutional citizenship.

Leave the Dark Side, Mark and embrace freedom.  You'll be a better American for it.

Or, just remain another hypocritical piece of crap.  Either way.  Your choice.

Yep, he got 'outed' and now he's trying to bail out of the situation... Hypocrite is right!

There is more to this story if you look at the Giffords campaign information from before the shooting. She described herself as very pro second amendment and also that her family enjoyed the shooting sports. Seems that Kelly still does...

...and now, the REST of the story.

It is believed that Kelly and Giffords were offered a large pot of cash by Bloomberg to set up their new anti-gun org. The rollout of the org was a splashy affair featuring Bloomberg and other of his gun-grabbing stooges. One of the righty blogs also suggested that Kelly desires political office, and the anti-gun work might be a down payment on financing his run in 2014.
