[Video] Anti Gunner Mark Kelly, Gabby Gifford’s Husband, Tells CNN Why He Bought an AR15
I’m sure you’ve heard that noted anti gunner, Mark Kelly, Gabby Giffords husband, purchased an AR15 the other day.
Kelly went on Wolf Blitzer to discuss the purchase.
He basically says it was a social experiment on how easy it is to purchase the gun.
Kelly said, “It’s important for me to have firsthand knowledge about how easy it is, or difficult it is, to buy a weapon like that,” and that he plans to complete similar purchases at gun shows in the future. He also noted that purchasing that AR-15 was “actually pretty easy, you know, for a weapon that’s so deadly, and really designed for the military, especially with the high capacity magazines, it is a pretty easy thing to do, even with a background check.”
“We had a plan to go in there to buy a .45, and if we had the opportunity, to buy an AR-15 as well. I don’t know the timing, but we had a plan when we were going to announce that on Facebook. In the future, I’ll be talking about buying a gun from a gun show, also selling a gun. So that’s all to come later, because I really need to understand this, the issues, you know, surrounding gun violence and these weapons.”
