And not by the government but by a gun shop owner using dubious reasoning, just like the LaPierre. Not enough of a paranoid 'good guy' gun owner, even though he and Gabby are known gun owners.
When caught only the FOX had the report up for hours, this CNN report had only been up for about one plus now.
26 March 2013 - An Arizona gun store says it has canceled a recent purchase of an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle by Mark Kelly thwarting the retired astronaut's attempt to demonstrate how easy it is to buy high-powered weapons.And a couple of meme's at the CNN site, along with one of my FB friends are using the 'straw purchase' reasoning and then wanting to talk about a dog, hadn't read that yet, he pulled off a baby sea lion instead as it was his daughters dog.
Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords and an outspoken advocate for new gun control measures, had in recent interviews said he was buying the rifle to showcase what he said are unobtrusive background checks.
Doug MacKinlay, owner of Diamondback Police Supply, said it was Kelly's statements that caused him to stop the sale.
"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 Form 4473 and NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) required of Mr. Kelly before he could take possession of this firearm," MacKinlay posted on the Tuscon store's Facebook page Monday.
MacKinlay said he sent a full refund to Kelly and nixed the transaction because Kelly made statements in the media that the rifle purchase was "for reasons other then for his personal use." read more>>>
Earlier, yesterday, Bloomberg uses Reality to the looney LaPierre's idiotic statement that frankly condemns himself and the NRA:
"He's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public," said LaPierre.
Mayor Bloomberg fired back on Monday.
"I don't think anybody can buy America but in the context of they've spent a $100 million and I've spent $10 million ... when you were a kid, there was something about throwing stones if you lived in glass houses," he said.
The gun shop owner just dictated what right's Kelly has, none as to guns. Just as those pols the NRA buy tear down the right's of others, to vote, to collectively bargain in labor, to unionize, to get an actual living wage, to have choice and on and on and on..............................................................................!!
Thought the spin was Everyone should and has a right to purchase a gun, no exclusions. Why just over the weekend they had rally's all over about them rights to pack. They interviewed one attending near here who described himself as a tea party member, who held the rally, and he said citizens have a right to legally own any weapon the Military and Law enforcement have rights to use. Apparently they want more then guns, so watch out for them civilian controlled drones, armed and ready!!
On them straw purchases, I'd check this gun shops records, plenty of weapons and ammo from Southeast shops and gun shows have found the way to the Mexican drug cartels for years now, that gun running spreading up and down and across the inter-states even to the East coast. Just so them drugs can freely flow back up to fill the needs here.
