Man Campaigning to Ban Assault
Rifles Caught Buying Assault Rifle

Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:Jakester2344, 3/10/2013 12:05:58 PM

Mark Kelly may not yet be a household name, but he’s the better or worse half of Gabby Giffords, and together with her is the public face of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a PAC funded by a Texas lawyer to ban assault rifles. On FOX, Kelly said, “In 1934, we banned automatic weapons. You know, I argue the semi-automatic assault weapon with a high capacity magazine is just too dangerous to be on the street where criminals and terrorists and the mentally ill can easily get them.”

Comments:
The hypocrisy of the left on display.

Not to mention dumb. In 1934 a tax was instituted on automatic weapons, since the AG at the time, as well as the supreme court, knew that was the only remote possibility the gov had of violating one of our basic rights through the legal thaumaturgy that they could control a right via a tax. Of course, no one mentions a poll tax these days do they - sound familiar? There isn´t a ban and they know they lack the constitutional power to ban. Too bad so many lofo´s think automatic weapons were banned or are banned, or that the government should control what the population possesses. For that matter, look at the lofo´s who think ´licensing´ concealed carry doesn´t violate the second amendment - or that the second amendment doesn´t apply to states!

Leftist Laws are just to suppress the masses that unfortunately for U.S. specifically include those dumb slugs that promote and vote these Leftists into office; thus proving without any doubt they indeed are very dumb slugs that knowingly or not are forcing our previously great American Constitutional Republic into the depths of Hell.

I submit that Mark Kelly knowingly broke the law when he bought this gun. One of the questions asked on the form is whether he is buying the gun for himself or another. If buying the gun for another he is a straw buyer. He told the news that he is going to take that semi-automatic rifle straight to the Tuscon Police. He did not buy the gun for himself, he bought it for the Tuscon Police and lied on the disclosure form.

This should keep this creep from parading his nearly brain dead wife as a poster child in order to take our Second Amendment rights away.
I don´t believe Alan Brady´s wife ever stooped this low in their gun control zeal.
I hope his opponents take advantage of this in the run for Giffords seat. The Tuscon Police would like to thank the liberal lying idiot for his help and a free $1500 gun.

Ventriloquist ?

Flogging an "Unassailable" poster-person is an old leftist trick.

Remember when they trotted out 4 or 5 wives / mothers who lost family members in the twin towers to protest the war in Iraq ?

The idea is to make debate impossible and advance the agenda while hiding behind skirts of some victim. Thus any attack on the agenda appears (to a LOFO) to be an attack on the front person.

If they could win the debate on it´s merits they would not need this type of shamelessness.

I´m not about to be a jerk. I am about to make a valid point based upon the liberals´ take on gun conrol.
Should he be bringing that sort of arsenal/stockpile (remember, if you own more than one gun, it´s stockpiling to a liberal) into a home with 1. a mentally challenged individual who is probably on some heavy-duty meds and 2. children.
Just curious, Mr. Kelly, why you would do something like that.

O.K. folks, where´s the relation between rifles and Gifford (Gifford? Why not Mrs. Kelley? Oh, nevermind, Kelley is either feline slapped or living in sin, doesn´t matter, it´s all PC.) getting shot by Jared Lee Loughner´s drawn pistol, and so the target of Rocket Man is rifles? There is this hysteria by the Marxist left to ban rifles, or anything that projects little missiles of any kind, forget the so-called "Assault" nomenclature that has nothing to do with the shooting of victim defenseless politicians posing as Superman/woman.

Frankly I´m fed up with Kelley and his parasitic whining to indiscriminately ban weapons of any kind predicated on his defenseless wife getting shot because she was standing out there defenseless in a victim´s dream of everything is perfectly all right and "nobody´s going to dare attack me predicated on my own sense of self-importance".

By the way, where was Rocket Man when he should have been there protecting his victim defenseless wife with his NASA badge, or the very force of his self-important hairy-lipped, chrome-domed presence?

Kelly obviously bought these guns for himself, and then decided to donate the AR-15 only after he learned he´d been outed as a uyer of an ´assault weapon´.

Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - A mob lynched a Muslim on Friday after he fell off a crowded lorry driving thousands of frightened civilians out of the strife-torn capital of the Central African Republic. A large convoy of lorries and taxis packed with Muslims fleeing Christian vigilantes headed north from Bangui under a slew of insults from angry residents, locals said. The mob set on the victim after he fell off one of the lorries and hacked to pieces his body, which still lay by the side of the road by late morning, an AFP photographer saw.

The 41 employees of Extreme Dodge in Jackson, Mich., are very familiar with trade-ins, but this year they’re learning about trade-offs as they come face to face with the new realities of health care. A few workers say they’re getting a great deal, but most have a severe case of sticker shock. “I feel like I’ve been taken to the cleaners,” said Neal Campbell, a salesman. The news was presented at the company’s annual benefits meeting earlier this month, when employees were told that the health insurance plan that the auto dealership had provided its workers was canceled because it doesn’t comply

This morning on "This Week," New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie brushed off criticism reported in the new book "Double Down" from a member of Mitt Romney´s 2012 vice presidential vetting team, saying his advice was not something he should "give a darn about." "First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about, so let´s start with that," Christie told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos.

Republicans Must Use Social Issues

Everyone knows why the GOP lost in 2012. Social issues distracted voters from the winning Republican economic message – at least that’s what most people believe. A new report released by American Principles in Action, a 501c4 organization based in Washington, D.C., states that this theory, while widely held, is incorrect. The problem with this belief is two-fold. First, the social issues, if played on offense, actually help Republicans win elections. And secondly, the GOP economic message failed to connect with middle class voters immediate economic concerns.

CAIRO — After torching a Franciscan school, Islamists paraded three nuns on the streets like "prisoners of war" before a Muslim woman offered them refuge. Two other women working at the school were sexually harassed and abused as they fought their way through a mob. In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt´s ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. The campaign of intimidation appears to be a warning to Christians outside Cairo to stand down from political activism. Christians have long

I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?
