My point was that he did it to purposely discredit himself and, hopefully, be left alone over gun control. He’s from Texas and he’s white. So the odds are about 1 in 10 that he’s with the gun-grabbers, so he probably got sick of being a poster-boy for them.

All speculation, of course.

Actually, I feel like he is even CREEPIER than that. I get bad vibes about him

...ex-astronaut, (ex-military I assume)...typically a quiet, dignified man...wife suffers a horrible injury...an honorable man protects and nurtures her...especially protects her from the creepy Democrats who are eager to exploit her situation. Believe me, Democrats at this level are super-creepy...she doesn't need any of that. Kelly fails this test big-time.

political opportunist.

he appears, like her, to be only concerned with personal power. Sad for the astronaught program.

he did not chose wisely.

he is Dukakis/carter answering the rape question in a presidential debate. totally useless.

what is lower than spam in a can?

I've always thought that if his intention was to protect his wife, he would have kept both of them out of the limelight since the day of the shooting. His first obligation was to her welfare.

And in that same regard, if Gabby had really intended to serve her constituents, she would have resigned from Congress as soon as she was able to sign the paperwork. She would have realized she could not represent, or serve, her constituents after the shooting.

Of course, we are talking liberals here, and in the final analysis is it always about THEM ... not about THE PEOPLE.

Gabby is proof of the old Bob Hope joke about Democrats and zombies.
But you can’t kill them, just look at the evidence, shoot them in the head to destroy the brain......they don’t have any!!!!

He is the one who said it was an impulse buy.....”Only after the purchase was discovered did Mark Kelly post on his Facebook indicating that the AR-15 purchase was an impulse buy, and that he would be turning it over to the Tuscon PD as soon as he got it from the gun store.”

...he now says he intended (the AR15 purchase) as an illustration of the need for more stringent gun laws.

In other words, he's a crazy man who should not be allowed to own a gun but he was able to get one anyway.

Since Kelly has stated that the purpose of “assault weapons” is to “kill a lot of people very quickly.” I would like to ask him how many innocent people was he planning to kill with his AR-15?

Yes, Mr. Kelly, why do you need such a weapon?? Nobody REALLY needs a gun that can use a high-capacity magazine, do they?

If a bunch of guys do a home invasion on you and your wife, can't you just call the police for help? Do you really think it is safe to take the law into your own hands? What if those guys took your weapon and shot you and your wife?

I know your have concerns about this, so I will be glad to purchase that dangerous weapon for $1. I usually charge a $100 disposal fee for doing this, but since it is used, I will give you a deal. Let me know how soon we can arrange the sale.

Kelly claimed that he bought the AR to show that it's too easy to buy an "assault weapon". That's the same logic that Christopher Dorner used to voice his support for gun control laws in his manifesto...
If you had a well regulated AWB, this would not happen. The time is now to reinstitute a ban that will save lives. Why does any sportsman need a 30 round magazine for hunting? Why does anyone need a suppressor? Why does anyone need a AR15 rifle? This is the same small arms weapons system utilized in eradicating Al Qaeda, Taliban, and every enemy combatant since the Vietnam war.

If you’ve seen pictures of he and Gabby, I think the vibes you’re getting are the way he physically “handles” her.

He constantly has a hand on her body. It appears, to me, to be a controlling thing. Like the person with a bully type personality, they always have to be Real Close or Touching a person to show they’re more powerful.

Just my humble opinion but, I think you’re giving him too much credit. I think that he was arrogant enough to think that he could get away with it. It’s the typical mindset of the liberal population in general. He figured that he could just lie and walk away from it. That usually does work for the Libs.

Just an aside, I wonder why Drudge isn’t mentioning this on his site?

I think it is more of a reassurance/comfort thing for Gabby. And a protective thing. I think she is sensitive about the way she presents herself and doesn’t want to fall down or look stupid. He knows her limitations, and he stays close.

I don’t like Mark Kelly. I think he is a flake. A loon. But I don’t fault him for his protectiveness. In his mind, this vibrant spitfire gal had all that taken away from her. Now she is a shell. He’s protective of what is left.

They used him in campaign commercials before her last campaign -— the one she barely won (and not on Election Day itself, from ballots that were counted for nearly a week). I never saw him with her at any events, but he was probably in TX. She didn’t even actually live in the district, but maintained a room in a house to pretend that she did. Everything about these two looters and leeches was always a complete scam.

He’s a disgusting ghoul. He released a photo of her dead-looking hand, and the creepiest photos ever of her bed sheets — within days of being admitted to the hospital.

Everything was one pure campaign move on his part, from beginning to end. Gabby would most likely have done the same thing were the roles reversed as the whole marriage seemed to be another sham (like BO and MO).

Kelly even revealed intimate secrets about their fertility that he had no business on the planet spilling. She is at about the mentality of 5 or 6 years old (I’m guessing) and I doubt would have approved his loose lips.

If you look at the timeline of when they met — the one that hasn’t been scrubbed from the Internet — it appeared that he was at least emotionally cheating on his wife. It’s a huge part of why we (locals) suspect the daughters would not talk to Gabby until after the shooting, when they were forced to.

This clown’s publicity stunt didn’t fool anybody, garnered him a lot of bad PR, and, if he lives up to his word (doubtful) and turns the gun over to the cops, cost him some money. He is a creep exploiting his wife. Does he have a job anymore, or is he going to be an “ex-astronaut” for the rest of his life?
