Hypocrisy: Mark Kelly Purchases Semi-Automatic Firearms After Testifying Against Them

The despicable behavior of liberals is so clear when it comes to gun control; do as I say, not as I do. Mark Kelly, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' husband, testified at the Colorado state capitol in support of more gun control legislation on March 4. Just one day later, Mr. Kelly purchased a 1911-stylke semi-automatic handgun and an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle, you know one of those falsely labeled "assault weapons"?

Giffords was gunned down in Arizona 2011 and has been on a crusade against the Second Amendment since before that time.

Mark Kelly is a retired American astronaut, U.S. Navy Captain and naval aviator who flew combat missions during the Gulf War. He has piloted the Space Shuttle on numerous missions. He is not just the husband of a former Congresswoman and so people do listen when he talks. However, when he took to his Facebook page to talk about his purchase of an AR-15, people reacted the way one would expect towards a blatant hypocrite.

"Looks like the judiciary committee will vote on background checks next week," he wrote. "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 yet but I'll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do. Scary to think of people buying guns like these without a background check at a gun show or the Internet. We really need to close the gun show and private seller loop hole."

One Colorado resident took him to task, writing on his wall, "Your (sic) a real piece of work, coming (sic) to my state to lecture us about gun control then caught buying the same things you were lecturing us about. WTF?"

Another commenter wrote, "Hypocrite, To take guns out of the hands of law-biding citizens thinking you are going to curb gun violence is false on its face alone. Being military i thought you would have a little more COMMON sense. I guess when you want to push a far left agenda you do alot of things that don't make sense.

Still another commented, "Sir, as a retired U.S. NAVY CAPTAIN, who spent many years saying he would UPHOLD AND PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION while on active duty, you are a true HYPRCRITE! Do you really think the majority of the american (sic) public is going to believe that you bought the AR-15 ( ASSULT WEAPON) and 1911 (SEMI-AUTOMATIC HANDGUN), these so called DANGEROUS weapons, just to pick them up and give them to the TUSCON P.D. Probably 1% of the population will. How many additional magazines did you buy? This just goes to show, how much of a LIER you are, It only takes time before your LIES catch up with you. Sir, you are a disgrace to any and all AMERICAN SERVICE MEMBER'S who are retired.

Giffords and Kelly founded their own group to attack the Second Amendment. Their website, Americans for Responsible Solutions, posted the following: "High capacity magazines are a deadly factor in gun violence."

The ARS website says: "Congress should act to limit the sale of high 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.

Kelly also appeared on Fox News Sunday and told Chris Wallace that Congress should address semi-automatic weapons. He claims that the purpose of a semi-automatic weapon is "to kill a lot of people very quickly," and he lamented that such products were "too readily available."

Clearly, once Kelly was caught red-handed he took to Facebook to pronounce his liberal virtues that he purchased the AR in order to turn it over to police. However, he didn't make that comment about the 1911. It is semi-automatic, though it doesn't carry more than 10 rounds. Still, should Mr. Kelly decide to purchase numerous magazines, he would be able to kill plenty of people if he so chose to do, right?

Let's just be honest here and confront the liberals up front. First the Second Amendment isn't about hunting or sports shooting. Second, it is about "preserving a free state."

In doing so, yes, arms are meant to kill people, lots of them if necessary. With that in mind, understand that many law abiding citizens, like myself, have never used our weapons to kill or harm anyone. We have hunted, used them for sport and target practice, collected them and have intentions of passing them down to the next generation, but the reality is that arms are a means of defending one's self, family, property and community against criminals and a tyrannical government.

So go ahead and talk about how they are effective at killing lots of people, because that is what they are designed to do. In the event that the government attempts to confiscate your guns, don't think they are going to come two at a time, knocking softly on your door and don't think they won't come with greater fire power than they want you to have. All of that is designed to keep them safe and make you vulnerable.

In fact, I just finished reading a hypothetical account in a novel by William Lafferty titled They Came for Our Guns, They Came for Our Freedom, which I highly recommend, to see down the road into just what gun confiscation would look like.

You might say that these people are not for gun confiscation. For some that may be true, but remember, once you go down the road of gun restrictions, there are no limits. This is why we have a Constitution and it provides no means for the Federal government to place restrictions on the people concerning guns and ammunition.

When these types of things come from a man that served in the military, it is extremely unsettling and I consider Mark Kelly a traitor to the Constitution and his comments and ideology at war with the United States Navy that he served in.
