You'd think Mark Kelly, Navy officer, Space Shuttle pilot and husband to wounded Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, would know better than to think his BS would pass general inspection:
Why did Mark Kelly pick a rifle for which he has yet to do a background check?
Kelly, a gun regulation advocate and husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has explained that he bought an AR-15 rifle last week because he wanted to show how "easy" it was to buy an "assault weapon."
Yet if that were really his purpose, why did he purchase a traded-in rifle for which he must wait 20 days--and for which he must still complete a background check? Why not purchase a new rifle he could have claimed immediately?
Kelly may have completed the background check process for the pistol he bought, but not for the AR-15.
There aren't many plausible explanations for this:
- Kelly wanted an AR-15 for personal reasons, but was "found out" and is doing the "cat trying to cover on a slate floor" bit out of sheer embarrassment;
- Kelly was "bought" by a Soros-type or similar institution and is doing as he was bid, despite the insult to our intelligence;
- The whole thing is a put-up job.
Ultimately it doesn't matter. We red-necked, gap-toothed, chest-beating, knuckle-dragging, Bible-thumping, gun-toting bitter-clingers aren't impressed...except by the hypocrisy among the bed-wetting anti-gun types, which has just reached a new high.
What continues to mystify me is how so utterly clueless a gaggle of creeps and pansies could continue to command even a sliver of popular accord, or any foothold in Congress, in a nation as fiercely proud of its armed state as ours. But then, I can't explain how Barack Hussein Obama got re-elected, either. Research continues. Grants accumulating. Results posted as they're confirmed by peer review. Watch this space.
