Mark Kelly, Another Liberal Space Case

So Mark Kelly walks into a gun shop. Sounds like the start of a joke right? Not quite. In fact the husband of former congresswoman Gabby Gifford's did just that and purchased an AR-15 in a sad attempt to show Americans how easy it is to purchase what he calls an "assault weapon."

This just goes to show how desperate he and his foundation are for publicity. Any American with half a brain can see right through his message. All his efforts did was prove that a law abiding citizen is capable of passing the NICS background check and allowed to purchase a legal semi-automatic rifle.

If Mr. Kelly wanted to prove that our background checks were flawed he should have tried something a little less, well ignorant. Had he went in with a convicted felon and said individual was allowed to purchase a firearm I may be concerned. But he couldn't do that because that individual would have left empty handed.

No matter what Mark Kelly tries. No matter what stunt he pulls off next. The fact still remains that criminals are capable of acquiring whatever firearm they want on the black market. No matter how many unenforceable laws he tries to push, he will only be making it more difficult for the law abiding citizens to acquire firearms legally.

In the words of St. George Tucker, "The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine the right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever...the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."

It's time these crazy liberals start reading up on what our founders truly meant when they drafted the US Constitution.
