Mark Kelly — a retired astronaut turned gun control advocate after his wife, former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was nearly killed in a 2011 mass shooting — will deliver the keynote address at the National Association of Realtors’ annual conference in November.

Kelly will take the stage on Saturday, Nov. 8, on the second day of the 2014 Realtors Conference & Expo in New Orleans, which will run Nov. 7-10. Giffords will also make a special appearance, NAR said in a press release.

Any organization that’s name begins with “National” is more than likely left wing. Not all, but most.

What’s he doing? Selling homes on the side? I guess they aren’t making much money pimping gun control.

Asked why NAR had chosen a gun control advocate as a speaker, NAR spokeswoman Sara Wiskerchen said NAR’s Meetings & Conference Committee selects keynote speakers they deem among “the nation’s foremost thinkers, leaders or innovators,”

Bullsh!t

Gabby Giffords Anti-Gun Group Gets Caught Accepting Illegal Contributions

August 19, 2013

"Another anti-gun group gets caught with the proverbial hand in the cookie jar. This time Gabby Giffords has her prints all over it.

The total amount of illegal contributions received was $15,250. That is not a small chunk of change. Giffords’ PAC, Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, received three illegal donations it has been discovered."

“Any organization that’s name begins with “National” is more than likely left wing. Not all, but most.”

On behalf of the Nat’l Rifle Assoc., thanks a heap for the afterthought.

BTW, I’d contend that I, and my fellow NRA members are all advocates of gun control.

Well, he was able to think, lead and innovate his way out of his daughter being charged when her dog attacked a seal in Cali. I think the seal died. And here I thought NOBODY got away with that. Guess I was wrong.

No. He wants the realtors to report gun owners to the authorities.

Gee Mark, sorry some Leftie Nutcase shot your Wife.

That being said, why aren’t you advocating getting rid of Leftist Nutcases rather than turning into one yourself?

Wonder what Mark would be doing if the Leftist Nutcase stabbed his Wife instead, banning Ginsu Knife Infomercials?

Hmmmmm, maybe NRA members should start a boycott of houses sold by NAR members. I think that threat might get their attention.

He tried to do a stunt buying a gun without proper ID or something, to prove it could be done, and blow the whistle on the gun seller, but they wouldn’t let the sale go through. He never talks about this incident when he was totally shown to be a sham. What a carbuncle on the ass of Arizonans that just want him to get the heck out of our lives.

Oh yeah, the pricks whose commercial implies they have the right to control people’s use of the word “realtor”. No great loss there.

“He wants the realtors to report gun owners to the authorities.”

That’s what is really insidious & evil about the gungrabbers. Possession of guns is not illegal but they think it should be (the real meaning of `common sense gun safety measures’), so the next best thing is to harass gun owners. Publishing lists of CCW holders, telling children to avoid homes where `a gun may be present’, punishing students with NRA/2A tee shirts, and topping the list, SWATing gun owners’ homes using phony 911 calls about `feeling threatened’.

All the last one requires is one disgruntled liberal neighbor.

I thought about the NRA and added the “not all” part.
