The husband of Gabrielle Giffords, who with his wife is a top campaigner for curbs to military-style weapon ownership, has drawn criticism for buying an assault rifle in Arizona, a purchase he said meant to highlight the need for gun control.
News of his purchase was quickly met with stinging rebukes from gun rights supporters on social media, who called Kelly a hypocrite for buying the gun in the first place.
"What a two faced coward you are Kelly - it's ok for you to own one and protect your family but not the rest of us?" one Facebook poster wrote.

he p#$%$ed the background check and was able to purchase the gun.. what is wrong with that.. is he a convicted felon? no.. so what is his beef ?? he bought it legally.. he needs to get his head out of his #$%$..
Yes then after the blow back from the various outlets he stated that he had planned on turning it in to police as soon as he received it, what a #$%$ full of bull hypocrite. Do us all a favor and just use it on yourself.
