Mark Kelly Records Self Buying a Handgun, Uses His Wife as a Prop in the Process

Just watch and you’ll see exactly what’s wrong with this picture.

Ride along with Captain Mark Kelly as he demonstrates how easy and quick it is to buy a gun with a background check.


In addition to using his wife as a prop, Kelly goes to a gun store to purchase a gun. At that gun store it is already required by federal law that a background check be conducted. If Kelly wants to be accurate in his push for universal background checks, he would go through the process of a private transfer to a family member, which would require a background check under legislation being proposed, and record himself doing it, without using his wife as a prop in the process. Not to mention, Kelly hands the gun he purchased over to Giffords in the video which would be a crime under Chuck Schumer’s proposed legislation.
