Gun store rescinds Mark Kelly's rifle purchase, questions his 'intent'
While I support and respect Mark Kelly's 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then for his personal use," MacKinlay said in the statement.
It was a shrewd decision by MacKinlay, the gun store owner, and a fitting response to Kelly's publicity stunt. I understand Kelly's motivation. If you can't get your hands around the neck of the guy who shot your wife you're going to lash out in any direction you can. Clearly this is one astronaut who is still Lost in Space.
