    The day after Giffords congressional testimony, her husband Mark Kelly bought an AR-15 and a semi-automatic pistol with a high capacity magazine. But hey - I know that won't matter to any of you here, because facts don't matter when you are pursuing Utopia, right?

    •  Kelly explained today on CNN why he bought the (0+ / 0-)

      AR-15 and why he's turning it in.

      MARK KELLY, HUSBAND OF GABRIELLE GIFFORDS:  Well, Wolf, it's important for me to have firsthand knowledge about how easy it is or difficult it is, you know, to buy a weapon like that.  You know, it is through a background check obviously at a federally licensed gun dealer, but it is important for me to know, you know, what it is and to have firsthand knowledge.

      So in the future, you know, I'm looking forward at some point to buying a gun, you know, at a gun show, also possibly selling a gun so I know really the ins and outs of this issue.

      BLITZER:  So what was it like going to a store and buying an AR-15?

      KELLY:  You know, it is actually pretty easy.  You know, for a weapon that's so deadly and really designed for the military, especially with the high-capacity magazines, it is a pretty easy thing to do, even with a background check.


      BLITZER:  What are you going to do with that AR-15?

      KELLY:  Well, the plan is to turn it into the Tucson Police Department.  So once I get access - you know, once I actually take possession of it, we'll be handing it in to the Tucson PD. CNN
