Kelly sure is taking advantage of his wife's difficulties.

He did speak about mental illness...but 99.9% of people with mental illness will never commit murder.

Why would a liberal oppressive want to help Republicans get re-elected? Recall, this guy is a massive liar.

Leading gun-control advocate Mark Kelly warned Republican senators Sunday that trying to block a vote on new firearms legislation that includes universal background checks could hurt their re-election efforts.

Well, Mark, in case you haven't been paying attention, the 'Pubbies don't seem to care too much about re-election. They're more concerned with appeasing zero and the Dems so I wouldn't lose any sleep over this!

And it won’t be an elected Republican either, since elected Republicans don’t criticize private citizens in public.

Only Der Leader does that.

Yes, Mr Kelly, the politicions should listen to their constituents.

Those constituents include millions of Americans who own & use guns for a number of reasons & who have NEVER been in any kind of trouble with the law. Until there is a revolution, they likely won’t ever be in any kind of trouble.

They are being unjustly punished by You & Obama & others for things they never participated in.

Perhaps you could get off your high horse over your wife’s injuries and look a little harder at the full story.

I am sorry for what happened to your wife.

BUT—It has been well established since then that the person who harmed her was having severe mental issues.

The only mental issues most Americans are having is going crazy dealing with Obama & Holder & Pelosi & Reid and others.

Have you noticed how every A-HOLE on the left “warns” Conservatives and Republicans not to do their sworn duty or be silent while they are supposed to be able to do or say anything no matter how outrageous? Since our side is demonized no matter what I would to hear our Reps tell these morons to just STFU and crawl back in their holes!

It would only help Rubio to be involved in a Filibuster. His flirtations with amnesty have crippled him in the eyes of many voters. Not all Democrats believe that we should reward law breakers much less all Conservatives.

Nobody will. He’s a “tragic figure” who’s wife got shot by a loony. A loony who should have never been able to get a gun, and wouldn’t have but for the perfidy of the local Rat Sheriff, who blamed Sarah Palin.

He can’t be challenged, the Rats know it and the lying media knows it too. That’s why they’re even willing to overlook how his carelessness caused the death of a sea lion in California.

Well, good point, they don’t care. But they do desperately want to get past that motion to proceed (aka “start/have the debate”), because after that, they can craft the bill with simple majority votes, and that when they’d put in all the nasty crap that would never survive a sixty vote threshold. Our guys know this, and that’s why they’re preparing to stop them at the front door. If the dems get the motion to proceed, we could see the same sequence of unfortunate events we saw with Obamacare. Kelly is trying to drain public support for that first and most important stand by framing it as “let’s just have the debate.” No, let’s not. Let’s call it settled that our 2A rights are not to be infringed upon, negotiated, or in any other way compromised. Go debate yourself, Mr. Kelly, you certainly haves the personalities for it.

His wife was shot by a mentally ill man who had been identified by numerous sources as being dangerous. None of this blocked him from passing a background check to buy a gun. Mark Kelly's solution is to require background checks for private sales.

This looks just like the VT shooter, and the Aurora shooter, but nobody will talk about caring for the mentally ill.

The sick part of this is that every community has Jared Loughners in it. Ask a local cop or deputy and they can probably rattle off a list of frequent fliers with their department. At some point it became more important to protect their rights than to get them the help they need.

On the one hand, it’s a shame that a guy like this - - an astronaut - - allows himself to get dragged into a political pandering scheme by the scumbag rats. On the other hand, his wife is a rat, and he DID allow himself to get dragged into it. Screw Kelly.

Is there nothing that the Republicans will not do for election results? I doubt it!

I guess the idea of the Constitution, ideals, and maybe personal beliefs is beyond the pale these days.

Can’t we all just get along! Geez, what a horrible statement (originally made by the left). No, we can’t!

There are major differences in beliefs that you folks just can not understand. Unfortunately, neither can our side! So just keep doing what you are doing and you are bound to win in the long run. Damn, I hate politics!!

I suspect that Kelly is going to run for the House seat his wife held. Her administrative assistant leveraged it in the special when Kelly was still astronauting. I think they allowed Barber to run in 2012 election because they were not sure the Democrats could hold that seat and Kelly did not have a good handle on the ‘message’. Now Kelly has a mission and by January ‘14 will have the message packaged and ready. They will convince Barber to take one for the team and not run again. SHAZAM! January 2015, Say hello to Congressman Mark E. Kelly.

It was good. When he got caught, he said he was doing it for the purpose of embarrassing the gun shop, then acted surprised when the gun shop told him to pound sand and don’t bother coming back for anything.

And Chris Wallace said nothing about it while giving Mr. Giffords a chance to explain himself.

“Most men who are in the military that long would probably retire as at least a colonel.”

A full Navy Captain (O-6) is the equivalent to an Army, Marine, or AF full Colonel (0-6). It is odd, however, that Kelly would retire on 24 years, unless he was going to be passed over for promotion. Observing the pass over is a long tradition when promotions at the higher levels of command are announced.

I disagree with both of your points. His heart is *not* in the “right place,” he’s trying to cash in on tragedy. Newtown was like manna from heaven for him. He is a ghoul. And he knows *nothing* about conservatives that he hasn’t been told by people like Chris Matthews. That’s not twisted, it’s willfully ignorant.

The guy is a bald Sarah Brady, milking the spouse for every bit he can get. I wouldn’t cross the street to save him from any misfortune.

Everyone I know wrote letters to the shop (it’s close to where I live) — saying they never should have sold to the gun grabber to begin with. I’m not sure if the boycotts were starting to have an effect, or if the store just did the right thing.

The as@troll didn’t even have an AZ driver’s license — and claimed he forgot his (TX?) license at home. He’s a lying, cheating piece-of-unmentionable.

Just a bit of a joke...heh. Was saying that you could probably put all Democrats into this list and exclude almost all Republicans. Of course there are always differences.

Beginning to doubt all theses Republicans though. Seems to me that other parties are a better fit (not by much - but getting better). Maybe it’s time to throw the Republicans under the bus! After all they are poised to welcome homosexual marriage so why continue to support them? They have beome an immorral party just like the other..
