He didn't do it for personal use, he did it for a publicity stunt.


another freakin' leftist opportunist. He and Giffords lived in separate states until he realized he could make political hay off her gunshot to the head.

Mark my words. This guy has political aspirations and he doesn't mind making them off her injuries.

Really? Did not know that. My cousin and her ex had broken up for about a year when he was in a car accident and lost two years of his memory, so he didn't realize they had broken up.

Maybe that's what's up with Gabby?

Yeah, it was a publicity stunt. Is he engaged in altruism? What are the odds?

"While I support and respect Mark Kelly’s 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then [sic] for his personal use," Douglas MacKinlay, the owner of Diamondback Supply Company, said in a post (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Diamondback-Police-Supply/143341839017998) to his store's Facebook page.

"In light of this fact, I determined that it was in my company’s best interest to terminate this transaction prior to his returning to my store to complete the Federal From [sic] 4473 and NICS background check required of Mr. Kelly before he could take possession this firearm."

MacKinlay added that he had fully refunded Kelly's money via express mail, and that the store planned to donate the rifle to a police raffle. The store also plans to donate an amount equivalent to the sale to a gun safety program for children.
