Posted on 03/16/2013 2:07:58 PM PDT by John Semmens
While campaigning vigorously against easy access to assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, Mark Kellyhusband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz)was spotted purchasing the very type of weapon he wants the law to prohibit.
Kelly denied he was being hypocritical, insisting that my position that ordinary people shouldnt be allowed to own such weapons isnt contradicted by my actions. First of all, I am no ordinary person. Im one of the very few humans who has been into outer space. Second, I am the husband of a member of this countrys ruling eliteone, I might add, who was nearly killed by an armed assailant.
The average person isnt explicitly targeted by enemies of this countrys government, Kelly argued. The average persons anonymity conveys a protection unavailable to those of us near the pinnacle of the human pyramid. The chance that he would need a gun for protection is statistically insignificant compared to us.
Subsequent to being called out for his apparent hypocrisy a photo of Gabby Giffords holding an assault rifle has emerged. Kelly maintains that there is no inconsistency. In fact, if Gabby had an assault rifle on the day she was attacked she might not have gotten shot. I would argue that criminals are deterred by superior firepower.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news/semi-satire posts you can find them at...
The ruling elite must protect their killing of 5,000 babies a day. They must take away guns to protect the people so they can kill them themselves. The de-moral-crats must stop sane people so that their most unstable can kill at will. They must have an opening so that they can kill a couple themselves.
Gabby likes guns! guns for me, but not for thee!
These are real, not photo shopped.
The only thing I can take from this is that he is against the Constitution of the United States. I wonder what else he is against......
So this turd is superior than any other American so he is entitled to this gun. Screw him. Beside his trip he was a passenger and the real credit goes to the thousands that provided the transportation and the equipment.
Fake, but accurate.
A clear indication of a mindset which may be one of the reasons this asshat has been separated from the U.S. Military...and a second reason to feel pity for his wife. What a jerk!!!
Gabby was pretty awful while representing my area in Congress. But the voters here are some of the stupidest people on the planet. They have bumpers stickers on their cars saying “Gabrielle Giffords continues to inspire.”
It used to make me crazy arguing with my fellow freepers who parroted the media line that Giffords was some kind of conservative Democrat. She was as hard left as they come.
