Retired astronaut Mark Kelly, whose wife, former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was targeted in a shooting rampage, offered condolences on the heels of the deaths of two Las Vegas officers and a bystander.

There it is. I must have missed it earlier. Hey, mx. mark kelley-giffords, stay out of it. Also, the "bystander" was a CCW holder and may have slowed the didiots down. Sadly for him, he didn't know the female was included/involved and apparently she approached him from behind.

It will be so much better when only government agents have guns and we can start herding people into the camps without having to worry that government agents might be harmed in the process.

Well, it’s a cinch we’ll never see Rocket Commander Mark Kelly-Giffords averting or slowing down a mass destruction domestic terrorist attack of the ‘ludicrous’ kind. He’s too busy putting words in his incapacitated wife’s mouth.

If senseless disgusting acts were a problem we were wanting to face, we'd start with Washington DC and finish up with the last local dog catcher.

That's how the second amendment was designed to work. We the people control this government, not the other way around.

Time to sit down and interview every politician like it was their first job. (and for most it is)If they don't like the company's rules (the constitution),they will not be hired. If they do get hired and break the company's rules (the constitution), they get immediately fired.

Why do Mark and Gabby lobby for laws that will promote more massacres if they claim to be against such acts?

Yes, it was a sensless, disgusting act. However, he (as usual) is missing the point. From another source:

Jerad Miller, 31, was convicted of felony vehicle theft in Washington state, and several other offenses, including phone harassment, driving under the influence, theft and malicious mischief, between 2001 and 2003, according to a Washington State Patrol database. He also had a criminal record in Indiana.

So, the original weapons they used (prior to taking the weapons from the victims) were either stolen or illegally purchased. If his wife purchased them, she did so with the knowledge they were not solely for her, making them an illegal straw purchase.

No legislation stopped them from doing this, but he insanely believes more laws are the answer.

Senseless and disgusting it may have been, but this is more a problem with mental stability than with weapons leading in the attack on authority. This pair of totally anarchistic sociopaths had a problem with authority figures, and the fact that they adopted some of the trappings and symbols of both state-sponsored terrorism and of rugged individualists should be an endorsement of neither, nor should there be any conflation of one with the other.

And hey, they were WAY too radical for the cowboy standoff at the Cliven Bundy Ranch.

You are right Mark.

If we had stronger gun laws, maniacs like this would NEVER be able to get a gun or commit mayhem.

Mark, you are either an idiot if you REALLY believe this, or a liar if you have a hidden agenda you are concealing - or maybe both.

Well, as long as I can’t buy a 17 round magazine (like the ones mark Kelly owns back where he lives in AZ, not CO) everything will be Ok. At least that is what Mr. lying hypocrite, fascist told the Colorado legislature.

From what I’ve read, the wife had no criminal record. She could have purchased guns with no problem. So the universal background checks he promotes would not have made a difference in this case.

100 Million Americans own Guns. Could be less, could be more, makes no difference.

If the Second Amendment was overturned, a dream of the Commies, some of those people would voluntarily disarm,
however a majority would not.

What would Mark’s solution be? Well, the only viable way to enforce a Gun Ban would be the use of Heavily Armed Government Agents going door to door, violating a whole bunch of Constitutional protections.

Conclusion, Mark is a Fascist to his core and would have made an excellent SS Officer under Hitler.

Apparently some of the militia folks disarmed the asshat after interviewing him and after further discussions, they told them both to leave due to his volatility and erratic behavior. Don’t know if they returned his weapon which was supposedly a 1911.

That’s the real goal—not “gun control” but people control. Mark’s ideological brethren can keep their guns—it’s “we” who can’t in their eyes.

The law they want is an outright ban.

Strange. Kelly never had a problem when he willingly trained with weapons in the Navy.

They don’t seem bothered by Chicago. Maybe because liberals are the biggest hypocrites in the world.

Mark doesn’t seem to mind the Coloured people killing each other in Chicago.

I wonder why that is?

I’m going with he’s an idiot. The other possibilities are just conjecture.
