Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:


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.

Gun store nixes Mark Kelly's AR-15 purchase

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

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.

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>>>

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.

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.
