Well, well, well…this is a case of paybacks are hell, and one case that you ought to get a kick out of! Seems Mr. Wannabe gun advocate Mark Kelly got dissed by the gun store owner that he bought his AR-15 from, along with the 45 caliber gun he recently purchased.

Here’s one report about the brouhaha…this is via FN:

A Tucson gun store owner has decided to rescind the sale of a military-style rifle to Mark Kelly, the husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, after Kelly said he had intended the purchase to make a political point about how easy it is to obtain the kind of firearms he’s lobbying Congress to ban.

Kelly’s March 5 purchase of an AR-15-style rifle and a 45.-caliber handgun at Diamondback Police Supply sparked a frenzy of reaction from both sides of the debate after he posted to Facebook a photo of himself shopping.

A background check took only a matter of minutes to complete, Kelly said in the Facebook post, adding that it’s scary to think people can buy similar guns without background checks at gun shows or on the Internet.

But Kelly couldn’t immediately take possession of the rifle because the shop had bought it from a customer. As a result, the store is required by a Tucson ordinance to hold the gun for 20 days to give the city enough time to make sure the weapon wasn’t used in a crime.

Store owner Doug MacKinlay said Monday in a Facebook post of his own that he “determined that was in my company’s best interest to terminate this transaction prior to his returning to my store.”

“While I support and respect Mark Kelly’s 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then for his personal use,” MacKinlay said in the statement.

He added that the store will return Kelly’s money, donate the rifle to the Arizona Tactical Officers Association to be raffled as a fundraiser and make an additional contribution of $1,295 — the value of the rifle — to the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program.

Kelly’s purchase of the guns sparked accusations of hypocrisy from gun-rights supporters, with many on Facebook focusing on his motivations and the rules for purchasing such guns. Kelly, a former astronaut, said he intended to eventually hand in the rifle to Tucson police but planned to keep the handgun.

Kelly and Giffords started a gun control advocacy group, Americans for Responsible Solutions, amid the wave of recent mass shootings. They have been touring the country in recent months in support of expanded background checks for gun purchases.

Kelly bought the guns at a Tucson shop the day before he appeared with his wife at the supermarket where she was wounded during a shooting rampage that left six dead and 12 others injured two years ago. Giffords resigned from Congress last year as she continues to recover from her injuries.

And if that diss wasn’t bad enough…this ought to be the topper! – Caught this earlier today here…and you know we should be hearing the screeching from PETA and the greenie-weenies pretty soon as well!

Astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of former Rep. Gabriel Giffords, might want to pay more time tending to his family and dog and less time pushing gun control and buying AR-15s.

Kelly’s dog just killed a baby seal. – (Warning on violent content)

Let’s see…’Three Strikes and You’re Out!’ comes to mind here. If Kelly keeps it up the way things are going in his life, I wouldn’t take any more chances on losing that last strike…would you?

He should think about staying out of the spot-light, mind his own business…take care of his wife and family, shut the heck up…move on, and get the hell out of our faces with the self-serving opportunity he’s been using at the detriment of his wife’s tragedy. In my opinion what he’s done will take him nowhere but to hell and back when it comes to gun control! He needs to buy a clue…and buy one fast! – What say you?

  1. Since I am retired military I always naturally had respect for Kelly in that he was an officer in our military and an Astronaut, BUT, this fiasco has really turned me against him.

    This is hypocrisy at it’s limits. Liberals are all absolute jerks.

  2. majorityofone says:

    Here is what PETA has been up to in my area.


    It will be interesting to see what PETA has to say about the death of that poor baby seal. Perhaps if its mother could have got an abortion, this tragedy could have been avoided.

    • majorityofone…

      Of course it’s always sad when something like that happens, it really gets to the heart of all. But…PETA needs to get a life and get our of ours. They murder more dogs and cats than anyone could ever think of…they themselves should be on trial, all of them…for many charges.

      Compared to the number of animals they murder every year compared to the total of dogs that have died since ’73 on the Iditarod trail is laughable…to say the least.

      Btw…we lived in AK for about a decade as well. – Seward area.

    Cry me a river you miserble little demacratic stinkhole hypotcrit trying use it as a political moment to revoke our 2nd AMENDMENT rights? PLEASE GO BEAT YOUR BRAINS OUT AGAINST A TREE WHIMPO BOY

  4. Snake Oiler says:

    That’s quite the picture at the top of the article. Looks like Daddy Warbucks and Little Orphan Annie.

    • I liked it too…I had it bigger size, but it was a little too much. – Anyway…you got the picture loud and clear, and your description is fitting. ~

  5. Mr. Grumpus says:

    Sounds to me like he lied about his intentions on Form 4473, which is a felony if I’m not mistaken. About the seal? I like dogs better than seals anyway.

  6. And the big lie is you can buy a weapon at a gun show without a background check, you cannot do that, buy all the tee shirts, camo ammo knifes etc but no gun.

    • Ya you can. Probably 25% that sell in Arizonas Guns Shows are private sales. They are not dealers and have no license to get from the BATF so its just like buying at a swap meet. I sold a piece about ten years ago just walking the gun show carrying a pistol when a lady asked me if it was for sale. I said 15 twenty dollar bills and its yours. She pulled out a wad of bills paid me it was hers. I don’t know her and I got it the same way. I’ sure its on BATF’s video as they tape the show. They got Tim McVay on the video the same way, same show. Its all legal. Dealer hate these guys as you don’t pay tax on the item, private sale, it cuts into their sales some. They do to many Private Sales at the gun show BATF will nail them for not being a dealer. I could have bought
      guns all over the state at private sales but I don’t want to buy a “Hot” gun so I stick with dealers mostly. Interestingly I have found dealer prices at gunshows are usually cheaper than the private sale guns and I have a warranty fom manufacturer.

      • Agreed, and I’m not complaining, but I walked into a local gun show here in East Texas last summer carrying a Russian made SKS and a M1 carbine repro, a private buyer saw them, wanted them, and bought them on the spot in the lobby of the convention hall, never made it to the dealer boothes. I will complain that I should have held onto them for post-Newtown markets, would have been worth more.

  7. Mr. Grumpus says:

    Leave it up to PETA to get mad at an animal for killing another animal.

  8. Quartier LeBlanc says:

    Kelly is a lying POS. No wonder two of the things blew up. He said he wanted to show how easy it was to buy a weapon in AZ. I googled up the whole process which was explained so easily that even a Democrat could understand it. It took me all of 10 seconds to find it, yet an astronaut has to pull this crap. He’s better find some stronger BS.

  9. Mr. Grumpus says:

    Man, he would just love Mississippi. The only state where it’s legal to drive with my knee, have a beer in one hand, and a pistol in the other hand. No special permit required. Chew on that, seal killer.

  10. Meanwhile, Ovomit’s 1% family vacations yet again…


    • Isn’t it sickening how the msm stays silent about this…with the exception of Fox? – Yet the Head of the Snake tells us to all cut back and uses the ‘sequester’ BS to punish all of us anyway possible because he didn’t get his way via congress/votes!

      Despicable POS in every way possible!

    • Most of the idiots in this country have no problem with the vacations. What about all the moochers on permanent vacation right here, while the rest of work our asses off to pay for it? What about the illegal aliens who get free health care and food stamps and welfare?

      What a joke.

  11. I’m reaL sorry Mr. Kelly’s wife is now a gimptard. Hey,I’d be upset too. She probably short-circuits during sex or somethin that’s got him pissed off..

    He’s basically a turncoat blaming the wrong issue. The guy who shot his wife was a known schizophrenic ,that was batting satellites. Everybody knew it, law enforcement his school, and parents. How he bought a gun, I don’t know?

    Blame the ACLU- not the NRA! (The mentally ill have more rights than you and me). Get these nutz off the streets and quit blaming the guns.
    And what’s up with those Yoda ears anyway?

    • Curmudgeon 7 says:

      The real irony of the creep that shot Giffords is that if the libtard, demonrat sheriff in the county had done his job and not covered up for the creep who shot her because his mom was his buddy and worked for the county, the shooter would never have been able to buy a gun in the first place. That came out shortly after the shooting and for most of the MSM there was….crickets.

  12. And on another note: I’m headed to a bar in town and I’m in a foul mood. Tiger Woods is ‘dating’ my ski queen; Lindsy Vonn.
    The first m…f…g libtard that starts talkin about gay marriage rights and …

  13. I may be somewhat old fashioned but I’m getting tired of people making fun of Gabby Giffords brain injury just as I was with Jim Bradys injury. Both of them went thru hell and kept going. They are both going to have problems for the rest of their lives, brain injuries always leave you with continually changing problems. What they don’t need are cheap shots at their brain functions and abilities. The spouses on the other hand need to just cool it, both have gone off the deep end and caused more harm and division in this country than I’ve seen in some time. Both spouse were deeply hurt by the shootings and regrettably have been used as puppets in the Socialist take over of the country. In Mrs. Bradys case she has had time to assess what she is doing and should stop using her Husband as a martyr. I look at her as a blithering idiot and Socialist tool. Mr. Kelly should pull his head out of his ass and off his high horse and take care of Gabby in a lower profile and less stressful situation. He needs to back off, he knows better. Time heals all things. Rather than bashing them they need our prayers every day, that would be far more productive. Our Vitriol should be directed at The Puppet Masters that are using them, they are truly the Evil Ones.

    • Snake Oiler says:

      Well said.

    • Mr. Grumpus says:

      You are, of course, correct Michael. It’s terribly sad what happened to Gabby Giffords. Mark Kelly could have been a hero and an example to people all across this land. Instead, he became a puppet for the anti-freedom socialists. He coulda been a contender.

    • Couldn’t agree more, bro. While I’m all about the snark, we have to remember who we are and that we’re better than these BS cheap shots. Slam those who truly deserve it, but going after victims makes you no better than Jack “I can pick on toddlers with Downs, ain’t I tough?” Stuef.

      As for the topic at hand, I look at stories like this and all I can say is: “Who says there’s no God?” 😉

    • If she has the cognitive ability to stay in the political issue game, she’s fair game.

  14. Here’s some more fodder for the mix. ~


    • Since he talked of getting rid of it BTAF could construe it a Known Straw Buy and that gunshop would have been a willing participant and lost their license, BTAF is devious to put it mildly. I think the power of having his name around the media gave him a big head and he forgot he is living under a microscope, which I get the feeling he doesn’t like. If he buys into the MSM crap they will know what brand of toilet paper he prefers. They like to have much on ya so if ya get outta line they will nail you. Progs march in lockstep, no free thinkers allowed. Twill be interesting to see if he continues
      with his mouth or wises up and retires helping Gabby.
      I wish they would put that little twerp that shot her in the general prison population for a few months at Florence. Its a real tough prison to be in.

  15. Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly are “”tools”” of the liberal hate mongering Democrat Party that has deceived the American people and continue to do so till this very day……..theses dumb-ass tools have conspired with the liberal left wing that hates America and the “We hate the Constitution” democrats so that they can take the Bill of Rights and flush it down the toilet…….

    I have no sympathy for tools like Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly wha-so-ever…. they can kiss my ass……..get the hell out of this country you son-a-bitches……..

    How dare you Mark Kelly and that dumb-ass bitch your married to subvert the oaths you have taken to uphold the Constitution and intentionally and with malice deceive Americans as to your intentions on the 2’nd amendment………

    you sons-a-bitches



    The right to not do buisness with hypotcrits and grandstanding liberal demacRATS

  17. I’m sorry for the shooting of Giffords but she and Kelly are two ardent liberal phonies, chronic liars, beneficiaries of heavy media hype. Big media actually hyped her as a “conservative” Democrat to get her elected. She had an extreme liberal voting record. The story and picture of Giffords holding a rifle are laughable and obvious vote bait. Now out of office they can reveal the truth about their gun-grabbing positions. Remember : low information voters. How about no information voters?

  18. “I may be somewhat old fashioned but I’m getting tired of people making fun of Gabby Giffords brain injury just as I was with Jim Bradys injury.” —Michael

    Listen up amigo, Kelly is a bitch and he’s using his celebrity as an astronaut ; he’s draggig his gimptard wife all over T V and playing for the public sympathy to take our gun rights away. I rank him somewhere lower than Jim Carry and Charles Schumer. You may get all verklempt and misty when you see his retard wife trying to walk and talk., but I don’t. It’s all part of the show you see.
    Sometimes you’ve got to scape that dog shit right off your shoe.

  19. Sorry…..

    playing fair and by the rules with DEMocRATS and LIBTARDS gets you one thing…..

    You win the 2nd place prize……

    also know as 1st LOSER…..

    Play to win, or go home.

  20. Well if Mr. Kelly is as irresponsible with a Dangerous breed dog, letting it run loose without a leash, which would be in violation of leash laws, on a public beach.

    I would be terrified of the legal ramifications of selling him a Pop Tart shaped like a gun. Someone might get their eye poked out

    Rules for thee, but not for me!

  21. If I remember correctly lying on a federal form 4473 is a felony and can be punished by up to five years in prison in addition to fines. Maybe the BATF should look into this.

    • They’ll look the other way…after-all, he’s a leftist-loon dem with an agenda for the big wigs of all kinds.


    I,ll bet this fool thought that the dealer would sell him a AR-15 he would then get BLOOMBOOGERS call a big news confrence gather around with UN tyrants and Obama then they would use this to push the UN SMALL ARMS CONTROL TREATY and get more stupid gun control laws passed Too bad you reptile your plans didnt work out. CASTCOM stops all gun sales. BOYCOTT CASTCOM

  23. This is short and sweet…right to the point. ~


  24. Not one mention that 70% of all U s shootings are directly related to gang members and recidivist criminals being let out early by activist judges!
    And what’s the liberal solution? why disarm law abiding citizens of course!
