Mark Kelly Gave Gun Control Testimony Day Before Buying AR-15 Posted on 10 March, 2013 by Amy

by AWR Hawkins

Mark Kelly and his wife, former congresswoman Gabby Giffords, testified at the Colorado state capitol in support of more gun control for that state on March 4.

Democrats in the Colorado legislature are pushing “high capacity” magazine bans, bans on private firearm sales, new taxes on firearm sales, and a repeal of a law allowing concealed carry permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense on a university campus.

They are also seeking to dissuade “assault weapons” ownership via SB 13-196, which allows “assault weapons” manufacturers to be sued for the illegal use of the firearms.

As he has done in pro-gun control testimony before the U.S. Congress in recent months, Kelly voiced support for this Democrat-led push for more gun control. He intimated that the gun control push could keep us all safer by keeping “dangerous people” from getting guns.

Ironically, on March 5–the day after giving his pro-gun control testimony in Col.–Kelly purchased a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol and an “assault rifle” at Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson, AZ.

Witnesses in the store claim he also bought “high capacity” magazines.

PTSD, a reason to ban the sale of a weapon.

Depending upon the statistics you believe, half of the US suffers for some form of PTSD.

It is counter productive to try using PTSD as grounds to ban such sales as it will make soldiers more hesitant to seek help.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. speaks with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 5, 2013, after a closed-door committee vote on CIA director nominee John Brennan. The committee voted Tuesday to approve President Barack Obama’s pick to lead the CIA after winning a behind-the-scenes battle with the White House over access to a series of top-secret legal opinions that justify the use of lethal drone strikes against terror suspects, including American citizens. Credit: AP During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun control Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) shot down a proposed amendment to her “assault weapons” ban that would exempt military veterans from the gun ban. She also made some questionable claims.

Pushing a ban on high-capacity magazines, Feinstein argued that it is “legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Here’s her dubious rationale:

“The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”

During the same hearing, she also argued that a military veteran could be mentally ill and suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), therefore should be prevented from buying the semi-automatic weapons that would be banned in her bill.

The California Democrat also made the bizarre claim that the “advent of PTSD” is a “new phenomenon” and a “product of the Iraq war.”

Here’s exactly what she said in context: “The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.”

Vacp:

You claim to be conservative, correct? If so, and given the fact you are looking at the beginning of the end of legal ownership of weapons, should you not be in support of studies which would make these facts more known?

For the last three months I have said that ar-15s and other weapons like them aren't used often, that small hand guns are more often used than a big clumsy rifle (assault or other)

I have also stated for the last three months that it has been gangs who do the most violence.

But your side block any research into the cause and the tools used. As such, the public acts blind and bans all, or worst the wrong weapons and then calls for additional bans to be made.

Why? Because you keep the public blind, deaf and dumb without research. Your hill billy word is useless and considered to be of the same quality and honesty as a devils... Because you like your guns and will do what ever it takes to keep them... In so doing, you hasten the loss of them.

Police forensic scientist at Newtown hearing: ‘Assault weapons’ ban won’t work by Patrick Howley February 4, 2013

The forensic scientist for the Bridgeport, Conn. Police Department sharply criticized proposed assault weapon and high-capacity magazine bans and pointed out the small number of crimes committed by high-capacity weapons in public hearing testimony last week.

Marshall K. Robinson, who said his area of expertise is “firearm and tool mark identification,” testified at the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group, which was convened at the Connecticut State Capitol in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. There he opposed statements from many of the other 1,300 speakers in attendance advocating for banning high-capacity AR-15 and AK-47 firearms.

Robinson pointed out that less than two percent of the firearms he has examined since 1996 that have been linked to violent crime in Bridgeport have been the caliber of AR-15 or AK-47 weapons.

“Since November 1996, I have examined approximately 2,370 firearms. Of that number 36 of them were either .223/5.56 mm or 7.62×39 mm,” Robinson said. “The percentage of those guns was about [1.5 percent].”

“I did further research on homicides and assaults in the years 2006 to 2012 inclusive. Of the 217 such cases, there were 912 bullets and 466 cartridge cases recovered. One assault involved .223 caliber and none involved 7.63×39 mm caliber. The largest number cartridge cases recovered in one case was 37 and that involved two guns. The investigations that involved the recovery of eleven or more cartridge cases was 22. Of the 22 cases, 21 involved 2 or more guns,” Robinson added.

Robinson went on to criticize past gun control measures and argued that new proposals will not work to reduce violent crime in any meaningful way.

“These are real numbers from real cases in a real city police department. This is not something made up or fabricated. High capacity magazines have been ‘banned’ before. It proved nothing and the ban was lifted a few years ago,” he said. “There are many guns in existence, since the 1860s, which hold more than 10 cartridges, the early Winchester lever action rifles, for example, and many tubefeed 22 caliber rifles. There are some modern firearms for which no other magazine exist. What do you propose we do with them?”

“In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed bayonet lugs, ?ash hiders, and collapsible stocks,” he testified. “In over forty years of being a firearm and tool mark examiner, I have never seen these components in?ict any injury whatsoever on any person. In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed fully automatic firearms that have the capability of firing a single shot. Ladies and gentlemen, I really need help with that one.”

“We all agree that the Newtown case is a tragedy. I submit to you that you cannot legislate away insanity, which I think is the root cause of this case,” Robinson said. “Laws must be passed based on research and logical thinking, not on emotions.”

Robinson also works at the state police forensic lab in Meriden, Conn.

Fungimentalists have dfficulty with alternate views of creation, evolution, and human intelligence.

Fear of truth is the main reason fungimentalists carry assault weapons with enourmous rounds of ammunition in their magazines, trunks, garagees and basement caves.
