Skip to comments.Mark Kelly warns GOP against filibustering Senate gun legislation
Posted on 03/31/2013 2:31:35 PM PDT by Nachum
Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.), on Sunday warned GOP lawmakers not to filibuster efforts to pass gun control in the Senate.
"It is important to take action and the American people are demanding action now," said Kelly on Fox News Sunday.
Kellys comments came in response to five Senate Republicans Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Ted Cruz (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah) and James Inhofe (Okla.) who said last week that they will filibuster any additional gun restrictions, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) prepares to move a gun bill.

Wasn’t hypocrite Mark Kelly just rejected for an AR-15 purchase?
Mark, just because you’re working for Elon Musk doesn’t mean anybody gives a sh!t about your comments.
Hey, Mark? Howz that sea lion? *oops*
Sounds like Kelly is going to run for his wife’s old House seat.
So a law breaker that lied on Federal documents is warning GOP lawmakers? What will he do next, commit a Felony? FUMK!
Since when is Giffords a Republican?
Why would Fox news let that pinhead on TV?
“... former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-Ariz.), on Sunday warned GOP lawmakers not to filibuster efforts to pass gun control in the Senate.”
Gifford was not and is not a Republican.
me thinks someone is prepping for a political campaign run....
They are taking action, they are defending the Constitution, just like you took an oath to... you douchebag.
Wow i was skeptical of sympathetic brain damage but I guess its true
Memo to Mark: Blow it out your backside.
I’d guess that he is warning them that they will succeed but watch out for the future! Seems like the normal Democatic spew to me.
One of these days, they will figure out that the country is not the Democratic creation that they assume. It’s called living within your own leftist bubble...just like the politicians do today.
20 kids were killed. The people’s rights must be infringed, even if it does nothing to stop mass murder!
Ground control to Captain Mark......
Or sic his pit bull on you.
Since when does a dem try to help out repbubs? He is a vile pile just like the rest of them trying to disarm us.
I think after acting as a straw buyer on an AR 15 and his daughter’s Pitt Bull killing a baby Sea Lion Mark Kelly has lost any credibility he ever had.
The guy has allowed his poor wife to be totted out and exploited by the Progressives. He has no business telling US Senators what to do. I’m sure they could care less.
The thing that really frosts my grits is that little lefty weasel Chris Wallace not even grilling Kelly about the AR 15 purchase.
Once again, the class of 1998 comes through with a great reply!!
20 Go to 10
Somthing weird about that couple. They crave attention. He was “so worried” about her being shot and undergoing intensive brain therapy that he left her and went off into space? She was not too bright before the shooting but now he is exploiting her! Disgusting!
Yes, it IS important to take action AND the American people ARE demanding the US Constitution be preserved, by not stripping/invalidating the 2nd Amendment!
self serving opportunist....he is a waste of time and effort
“It is important to take action and the American people are demanding action now,”
He read my mind...
What it does is enable mass murder.
Yeah, Wallace was especially bad this morning. But the incident wasn't totally unnoticed. Wallace played some of the anti-gun video he made of the purchase and "discussion" with the head of the house (Gabby). Made sure Mr. Gifford's side of things was told.
Disarm DHS and smelly BO’s secret service detail if they really believe in disarming. Otherwise they should shut up or be ridiculed for believing we will disarm in the face of tyrants. Go play in the highway Markx.
foolish - perfect word here
I’m still waiting for Mark Giffords (maiden name Kelly) to be arrested for having an assault dog that killed a federally-protected sea critter.
The crazy man who shot Gabrielle Gifford in 2011, Jared Lee Loughner, had a history of charges for drug possession charges had been suspended by his college for disruptive behavior.
Yet the Police reports reveal he had legally purchased the pistol used in the shooting after passing the required FBI background check less than six weeks before the shooting.
So much for the argument that passing a bill requiring universal background checks would have made a difference in the Tuscon shootings.
I really love the way Wallace just lets Kelly sit there and say that the Newtown shooter would have never passed a background check if his mental health records were on file. I read that the kid was turned down 5 times and finally stole his Mom’s guns. Wallace never said a word.
He has more to fear from his cosmic radiation exposure than law abiding gun owners.
Hey Mark, why don’t you do something productive like teaching your wife to sing “Putting on the Ritz”?
Isn't that what Sarah Palin allegedly did to Gabriella?
nah, he isn’t prepping for congress. he want to be in the movies. 2013 Space Cadet-Mark Kelly. or maybe SpaceBalls II
How does anyone ever take these fools serious.
Hey Captain -
Hug my nutz.
Command Sergeant Major
can we finally disregard this posterboy for goebles propaganda?
FNC had him on and it was such a beltway puffpiece as to be more about the country club defending its exclusivity.
He is such a jerk on camera it calls into question how the heck such an evil self centered douche came to be an astronaught.
Wallace was in full grovel to him. He does that at the most inconvenient times. I miss Tony.
Giffords was a D not an R.
hyppocrit kelly thought he could goebles a fake demand into a road to office.
He is an opportunist and a useful idiot of the left.
The MSM/DC/McCainiacs do not want this issue to die. for some reason they have an urgent NEED to disarm the citizens of the USA. This Kelly PR parade today is just a gasp to revive.
Mark Kelly is election poison for any politician next to him.
