A Tucson gun store owner has decided to rescind the sale of a military-style rifle to Mark Kelly, the husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, after Kelly said he had intended the purchase to make a political point about how easy it is to obtain the kind of firearms he's lobbying Congress to ban.
Kelly's March 5 purchase of an AR-15-style rifle and a 45.-caliber handgun at Diamondback Police Supply sparked a frenzy of reaction from both sides of the debate after he posted to Facebook a photo of himself shopping.
"While I support and respect Mark Kelly's 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then for his personal use," MacKinlay said in the statement.
He added that the store will return Kelly's money, donate the rifle to the Arizona Tactical Officers Association to be raffled as a fundraiser and make an additional contribution of $1,295 -- the value of the rifle -- to the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program.

He’s their “assault weapon” - a total fake, no different than any other metrosexual lib. It’s fitting that even his dog is a prop.
Hilarious seeing that bald head stooge useless eater getting his gears jammed
He looks so stupid I think he got shot in the head too.
I believe the store was getting a lot of flack, angry letters and boycotts. I don’t know anything “officially” — just lots and lots of friends who were writing/calling/boycotting them. I’m glad they rescinded Astro-Troll’s scam purchase.
I wish he hadn’t given the rifle to the SWAT folks.
