Mark Kelly, Firearms Felon

Mark Kelly has been riding sympathy for his flaky but regrettably wounded wife Gabby Giffords toward a powerful position in politics by sanctimoniously denouncing our constitutional right to bear arms. But a speed bump emerged on his path to glory when it was discovered that he broke the law in the course of acquiring an AR-15 — the highly popular model moonbats like Kelly have made a priority of denying us the right to own.

Over the weekend, husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and anti-gun advocate Mark Kelly purchased as AR-15 at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson, Arizona. The reason? According to Kelly, he was proving a point about the amount of time background checks take to conduct and won’t keep the AR-15. In fact, his plan all along was to give it away to the police.

If true, that would constitute two felonies, as noted at The Obama File:

If Mr. Kelly did not intend to keep the AR-15, but to give it to another, he is committing a felony by being a “straw purchaser” under current law, and he must have stated on the ATF Form 4473 that he was buying it for himself, so he committed perjury on the BATF form, also a felony.

We had better make an example of this scofflaw, even if it saves only one child’s life.

However, the Obama Regime doesn’t have time to prosecute such cases. Attacking the Second Amendment rights of the law-abiding keeps it too busy.

    NOTE TO MOONBATTERY: The massive, unlimited HYPOCRISY, LIES, DECEPTIONS, MISREPRESENTATIONS, CORRUPTION, SELF-SERVING PANDERING, etc., etc., of the lunatic-left d-cRAT socialist extremists is NOT news. It would be NEWS if they didn’t continually do these things – but that will NEVER happen!

  2. ComradeKulak says:

    LOL! Comrade Kelly will not get in any trouble he is a democRAT. What is this attention whore after pimping his wife’s tragedy?

  3. IslandLifer says:

    Throw him in the dungeon!!! Stale bread and muddy water with only a hole to shit in! Guilty of being an asshole!!

  4. Paddy Bauler says:

    I feel some sympathy for Gabby, she seems like she is being spoon fed what to say. She is most likely really f-d up over what happened. But as for her husband is his pimping her tragedy totally for himself. He deserves the full wrath that the ATF usually reserves for those who don’t dot the i’s on the 4473. Or the treatment that Randy Weaver got.

    Now the liar can hit all the daytime talk shows to promote a book.

    …maybe give him the Lon Horiuchi award.
    Ever wonder where the gun grabbers would have been had not Brady been pimped out by his despicable wife Sarah?

  7. Sweep the leg says:

    Fk both of them.

    She gets shot by a nut, and in response I can’t own a gun? That helps who, and how?

    “We had better make an example of this scofflaw, even if it saves only one child’s life”

    Lol. Dave has been on top of his game…

    I guess ole Mark was just thinking about his future employment. I mean, after all, one can’t be floating around in outer space in their 50s, right?

    So, by being a good wannebe communist drone, he probably thought he’d be a shoe-in for some patronage job in a democrat-controlled location, perhaps in DC itself.

    If he broke AZ law, Gov. Jan Brewer might press charges. But, as one of the beautiful people, he won’t have to fear the current regime’s “law enforcement.”

    If a television talking head can illegally display a banned rifle mag on national TV while in DC, then ole Mark has nothing to fear.

  10. GoinSane says:

    This doesn’t pass the smell test. I think he actually wanted to buy it for himself and is now caught in a lie. What is he trying to prove that isn’t already a known fact?

    I understand this post was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but buying a gun for youself and then giving it to someone else is not a crime (most places). I doubt the cops asked him to buy it for them, so no lie.

    We got far more important things to deal with than BATF violators, there are kids out there still biting pastries into the shape of a gun!!

    zthe main stream media constantly parading Mooochelle NObama and Giffords in front of us on a daily bais is sickening. Kelly is simply a dickhead riding Gifford’s coattails.

  14. Dadof3 says:

    They have a misunderstanding of what constitutes a “Straw Purchase”. It is only a straw purchase if the “real” buyer” is someone that is not allowed to buy a gun and you are doing it for them. You are not the “real buyer” then but a “straw purchaser”

    This is a true statement: It is legal for you to purchase a gun and give it as a gift to someone who is allowed to own guns in the first place. I HAVE DONE IT MANY TIMES AND SO HAVE MY RELATIVES!!

    If you can give it as a gift – HE DID NOT COMMIT A FELONY because the police department is allowed to own guns!

  17. Skyfall says:

    First, I’m sorry for Ms. Giffords terrible injuries…

    BUT

    …once you start “wheeling out the cripple” to push an agenda that will harm me and my family, sorry…f*** you, Charlie. The sympathy ends.

    I’m with “Goin'”, I think her hubby figured out that a weapon is a pretty handy thing to have in case of social upheaval. OOPS, he got caught. Pete Townshend time: “I was only buying it for research purposes. I was going to turn it in. Yeah…that’s it!”

    When you are in the middle of a blackout from a riot or some other disaster, when your phones are down and cops are hours or even days away…you might just want a nice AR-15 WITH A BIG CLIP.

    …from my cold, dead fingers.

  18. Fiberal says:

    Liberals are on the wrong side of the gun control issue.

    Look liberals:

    What if Trayvon Martin thought George Zimmerman was armed?

    No shooting. Guaranteed.

    But then there would be no “victim” and no opportunity for national outrage about race. Liberals would have no cause to mobilize.

    No question –liberals are a helluva lot more concerned about race than they are about guns.

    (Trendiness notwithstanding.)

    .
    So as usual, dumb as ever, liberals are on the wrong side of the argument.

    Face it.
    Liberals need guns.

  19. Fiberal says:

    Poor dumb Mark was just being consistent.

  22. jc14 says:

    Sure you were just buying the AR-15 to “test” the process and background checks. Some a-hole shoots your wife and destroys her life, you know damn well there are at least a few more of them out there, looking for their 15 seconds of fame, and either you or your wife would make tempting targets so they might claim that “fame,” hence the “assault weapon” to protect yourself and your family. Only an idiot libtard would feel he has to lie in order to exercise his 2nd Amendment rights in a free country (well, for a little while longer, it would seem, as the Prez seems bound and determined to “change” us into a 3rd or 4th world nation, and post-haste).

    ‎*****ATTENTION***** **BREAKING NEWS**
    INTEL BRIEFING – 3/11/13 (yesterday)

    RE: Federal action against patriot groups in US

    Today at 10AM there was a very large meeting at the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) headquarters in Clarksburg, WV. The meeting was held in an auditorium and included everyone – from agents to the secretaries. The meeting was organized by the Director of the Biometric Identification Management Agency (BIMA), Colonel Salo (ret.).

    Salo summarized the purchase of 24 new armored vehicles (each costing $400k) and the recent appearance of 20 mobile headquarters that are now present at the facility. The mobile units are semi-trailers with attached generators in the front; are of a shiny, mirrored-silver finish; and have no identifiable markings on them at all. There are 20 of them parked (visibly in front) at 1000 Cluster Hollow Rd, Clarksburg, WV as of today. Additionally, there are 24 armored cars (the same ones we have seen with DHS markings) parked in a different lot on this property, but they too may be visible.

    The Colonel went into great detail on a list of patriot/constitutional groups. According to witnesses, this is a list that may be identical or very close to the one put out by the SPLC but had over 1000 groups on it. He explained that although groups may take advantage of the 2nd Amendment debate to garner followers now, at the heart of all these organizations is a racist core; one that poses a threat and will need to be dealt with soon. This is when he tied the armored cars and mobile command trailers to ‘the mission’.

    The armored cars (those at the facility and nationwide) are to effect high-risk warrants on the ringleaders of the listed various groups with command centers being placed as necessary. The DHS and FBI are planning to move at one time against the listed groups; with SWAT teams being utilized against the more threatening ones. The colonel explained that all these groups have been successfully infiltrated and the leaders identified. He also explained that this is part of the new Internal Security Force that the president has been alluding to. In answering a question from an attendee regarding the mass purchase of ammo, he also stated that the buildup of arms and ammo was specifically for this ‘mission’.

    The witness has told me that after the meeting, everyone they seen were against this. People were complaining, shaking their head in disbelief, and asking what the heck going on. According to them, NOBODY (including federal agents present) planned on going along with this and many even talked about how this will ignite a war.

    The report I received can be verified through any personal contacts you may have at this center or connected to the agencies mentioned. You may also visibly inspect the lot for these trailers by driving to the location in Clarksburg. The witness was extremely bothered by the meeting and has said ‘it is coming and a hell of a lot sooner than people think’.

    I used to think that mass roundups would never happen – but with this new information, I can clearly see that this is exactly what is going to happen (at least to a certain number of militia/patriot groups). And inevitably, any action this crazy will result in a reaction by others. The specter of Civil War in this country is a real and present danger folks – prepare.

    NOTE: I did ask a whole bunch of additional questions which hopefully will be answered soon. I have been able to confirm most of this there is very little of it that is not true. sources confirmed with are in Gov. This has militia units all over the us going to ground and going off grid or hot.

    The Modern American Revolution encourages everyone to make their final preps, top off their gas tanks, dial in their optics, etc. Don’t get caught with your pants down.

  24. SNuss says:

    @ Dadof3: If you read ATF form 4473, you won’t find any exception for “gifting” someone with the gun. It states quite clearly that if you claim to be the buyer, and you are not, that IS a felony under Federal law.

  25. PabloD says:

    SNuss: you can get a copy of Form 4473 online. If you read the notes for sec. 11a of the form, it clearly states that you can purchase a firearm with your own money and gift it to an eligible recipient. Dadof3 is correct on this point.

  26. Dr. 9 says:

    “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

    That is obviously the thinking of NYC’s queen Bloomberg who was waiting for the Newton shooting to push his anti-gun agenda. I doubt you will ever run across anyone as devious as this ultra-arrogant elitist.

    http://politicker.com/2013/03/after-aurora-how-mayor-bloomberg-planned-to-make-the-next-massacre-count/

  27. Dadof3 says:

    SNUSS. Please consider exactly what that reads. It does not contradict me. I AM the buyer!

    I can buy whatever gun I want and give it as a gift to anyone that is legally able to possess one. If you can understand that you can understand the difference between when it’s giving a gun legally and when it’s straw buying one.

    I am still the buyer! My money, my deal all the way.

    Where I live you can give people guns as long as they are legally able to own them. No crime done. Ever hear of a gun being under a christmas tree?

    If a felon gave me $2,000 to go buy a $1,000 gun for him then I would be a straw purchaser. Using my clean background to buy a gun for a criminal – with the criminal’s money – is what that is preventing. Not gifting to another clean person.

    If you don’t believe me you can ask the BATFE yourself.

    They will tell you it’s up to your state law on personal transfers being allowed or not. The rest is as I said, also.

    Reminds me of when liberal news colomist CARL ROWAN a big time supporter of GUN CONTROL used a gun to shoot a tresspasser in his swimming pool and was tagged approptratly a HYPOTCRIT More of this DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO liberal hypocracy

  30. Skyfall says:

    You guys…forget the felony stuff. “Machine Gun” Kelly got caught breaking progressive orthodoxy: he wanted a gun with some firepower to protect himself. His only problem is that in Progville, you aren’t allowed to do that in the open (you say “I don’t have guns”, then hire armed body guards. Kelly probably doesn’t have enough dough like Rosie O’Donnell, so he did what rational people do: bought his own weapon.)

    I heard someone on Fox today, saying “well yes, OK, you have the right to protect yourself, but why would you need more that three or seven rounds in a gun?” WHY? Because I don’t want to be equal to the bad guy in a firefight, I want overwhelming superiority. I also am savvy enough to know that I’m not just threatened by burglars but by a soon-to-be rogue government.

  35. czuch says:

    He also bought a .45. He said he’s keeping that one. This whole thing reeks. The very thing he is working against he keeps. He also has a CCW, as does Gabby.
    No news of her relinquishing that. He wants those mentally unfit not to own guns. I’d say he’s living with a text book case of who should not have access.
    When ever this organ grinder parades the monkey to further the cause he is comitting a crime.
    Remember the Wellstone funeral here.
    I’ll be he dosent even have a parking ticket so there is no reason to deny him the purchase. Stellar career and and congressman wife. No problem with the purchase.

Someone who uses US taxpayer money to fund his trips into space, yet calls himself an ‘Isreali Astronaut’ as opposed to an ‘American Astronaut’ deserves less respect than the smooshed bug on the bottom of my shoe. Especially since our space program has been gutted and we have to pay the Russians 70 million a pop to rent his seat on their Soyus capsules.
