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.
