In another case of poor reading comprehension or blind rage and willful ignorance, Breitbart.com and Gateway Pundit, aka “Dim” Jim Hoft, have led their readership in yet another bout of outrageous outrage. It appears that Gabby Gifford’s husband, Captain Mark Kelly has purchased an AR-15 and a 45 to make a point of some kind. We’ll soon find out why — but first, intrepid reporters AWR Hawkins & Neil McCabe from Breitbart report:
Gabby Giffords’s Husband Buys AR-15
by AWR Hawkins & Neil McCabe
March 9, 2013
Mark E. Kelly, gun-control proponent and husband to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, recently purchased an AR-15 (an “assault weapon,” he called it)—which he now says he intended as an illustration of the need for more stringent gun laws.
Kelly reportedly bought the AR-15 and a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol at a gun store in Tucson, Arizona.
Breitbart News received a tip on this when Neil McCabe, editor of Guns & Patriots newsletter, contacted us on March 7 and said:
Mark E. Kelly, made purchases which included an AR-15—sometimes described as an “assault rifle”—at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of March 5 at Diamondback Police Supply, 170 S. Kolb Street, Tucson, AZ.
According to McCabe, witnesses to the purchases claimed Kelly purchased “high capacity” magazines as well.
Now we take it to another intrepid reporter, the Accuracy in Media award winning “Dim” Jim Hoft:
