James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has done it again. Senate candidate and alleged would be gun grabber par excellent, Mark Kelly has been putting out, what this staffer seems to suggest is, false information on his policy on guns. This is Part One of his expose on Kelly. Kelly has been acting like he would not be in favor of gun control. But now that appear that it could possibly be a lie.
O’Keefe spoke with Angelica Carpio, a field organizer for Mission for Arizona.
She told O’keefe:
[Kelly] just wants to get elected first. … Arizona is a very Republican state in general, like a red state. And I know, actually, right now it’s purple technically, but I think he just wants to get those independents. He wants to get those Republicans that don’t trust Trump anymore, and one of their main issues is guns.”
“I think it’s because he just wants to get elected first and then he wants to go further.”
BREAKING PART 1: @CaptMarkKelly deceives AZ voters on true gun agenda
“I don’t think he’s fully been out there saying like 'I want a full gun control type measure"
“Trying to be elected…then he’ll implement the (gun)measures”

For example, his stops did not include a mention of his support for universal background checks, even though such checks would impact Arizonans greatly by criminalizing gun sales that occur apart from seeking government permission via a background check. Such checks already apply to retail sales, but Kelly wants to expand them to private sales, too. This means that a neighbor could not legally sell a gun to a lifelong neighbor unless first getting government permission via a background check; it means one coworker could not sell a five-shot .38 revolver to another coworker, even if they have known each other for decades without first getting government permission via a background check.
Kelly and his wife, Gabby Giffords, have spent years assuring Americans that background checks are key to making America safer. However, they do not mention that when Kelly’s wife was attacked on January 8, 2011, her attacker used a gun he had acquired via a background check.
Breitbart News reported back in July that Kelly was not telling people at the rallies about any gun confiscation plans. But on his website, it says that he favors removing guns from people’s homes based on mere accusations. In theory, If someone gets pissed at you, they can just call the police. If noo one ever gets charged for making false accusations, it sounds like something that the Democrats would love.
Kelly backs universal background checks and gun confiscation. I wonder how many gun owners risk being deceived by Kelly. But by the time they find out, it will be too late. Kelly will have their votes and their guns. Buyer’s remorse gets you nowhere. You cannot recall a member of congress.
