Has anyone been able to confiirm what I read online yesterday that Gabby Giffords,( the congresswoman who was shot by the wack job ) husband and anti gun zealot, purchased an Ar-15 and a 1911 .45 at an Arizona gun shop. This was claimed as being confirmed. Claimed also that Giffords husband was contacted and that he hadn;t picked up the AR, and wasn;t going to keep it. Does that make sense to anyone? Wants to ban ARs, but buys one for himself? More liberal hypocrisy

Conservative and liberal sources; fair and balanced

It is not surprising they are already trying to spin the story.

I expect liberals to lie and be hypocritical. This way they are easy to understand and even easier to predict.

it could be argued that he knows somthing we don't,and therefore feels justified in purchasing the very item he seeks to ban.i have a hard time swalowing the story this was all to prove how easy it is for a legal citizen to buy an a r15,and if it was where were the cameras?

It should be this easy for a law abiding citizen to purchase a firearm in our country. I must be missing something as well as I do not understand his argument.

I agree, the main stream media must think we are stupid to buy that version. If it was true, it would have been filmed, he would have been interviewed before and after and it would have been a lead story on the news that night.

the only thing that was wrong is that they failed to see that he's mentally incompetent of owning a firearm.

Latest I hear is that he is going to turn the AR over to the police. I also heard the comment that he bought the AR to show how easy it was to get it. It;s not against the law it should be easy. No one mentions its a 20 day waiting period for him to take possesion of the weapon as it was purchased by the store, used, from a private citizen. so if you buy a gun and on the Fed form you put down gun is for yourself and then you give it to someone else immediately wouldn;t that be a straw purchase? He's keeping the .45 Semi-auto pistol. so how anti gun can he be?

I agree with Lucky, it sounds just like a straw purchase

Arizona gunshop owner who originally sold the AR to Kelly has voided the purchase and refunded Kelly's money. He states allthough he fully supports the right for law abiding citizens to own an AR, he feels Kelly bought his not for personal use, but to exploit it for anti gun propaganda. Buy that owner a beer.
