3 reasons to Ignore Mark Kelly’s Gun Control Tour

Mark Kelly, best known for being the husband of someone famous, is dragging Gabby Giffords around the nation for another gun control tour- focused on visiting states with Democrat senators who did the right thing and voted against Universal Gun Registration Background Checks to bully those senators into changing their position. Mark and his freedom-hating gun control organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, champion two gun control issues: Universal Gun Registration and High Standard Capacity magazine bans.

Author's Note: Standard capacity magazines are 15 rounds for pistols and 30 rounds for rifles. The Bloomberg propaganda machine and Journolists have worked very hard to convince the public that these standard capacity mags are actually 'high capacity'.

People should know a few facts about the hypocrite Mark Kelly before they pay any further attention to this hypocrite. Let's start with this magazine capacity issue:

Before you think that the 'Americans for Responsible Solutions' bus can keep rolling after losing a wheel consider this evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of the existing Background Check laws:

  • FACT: Existing Backgound Check laws prevented Mark Kelly from purchasing a handgun in February 2013. Kelly could not produce a state-issued ID to prove that he was an AZ resident when trying to purchase a .45 pistol in a Tuscon gun store and was denied purchase. Background check laws currently in place require that an individual purchasing a handgun be a resident of the state in which he or she is purchasing the firearm.
  • FACT: Existing Background Check laws prevented Mark Kelly from purchasing a second firearm in March 2013– this time an AR-15 rifle. Question 11a on the Form 4473 that puchasers are required to complete requires prospective buyers to certify that they are purchasing the firearm for personal use. Kelly had no such intentions and his attempt at a straw purchase was denied.

Lawmakers need to understand that it is not possible to legislate morality. The rediculous claim that disarming law-abiding citizens will reduce crime is simply not true. Half of all murders in the US are committed by criminals released from prison. Could someone PLEASE draft laws to keep violent offenders in prison?
