Mr. Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly is on a one-man crusade, ala Sarah Brady, using the tragedies of their spouses shootings to drum up support for anti-Second Amendment legislation.
Kelly, like Brady, uses emotional appeals, twists facts, and the omision of pertinent information in order to make his case.
While I, and anyone else with a soul, has deep sympathy for the tragedies that befell both Gabby Giffords and James Brady, as well as their families, it does not excuse "the ends justifies the means" campaigns that both use in their attempt to sway opinion. Every time that they are found to be dishonest in their tactics, it undermines their cause, while at the same time making them less sympathetic, and just another hack with a political axe to grind.
That said, I sincerely hope and pray that Mark Kelly and Sarah Brady find the peace they desperately seek in the wake of the horrific tragedies that have affected their spouse and family.

Breitbart News can now report that although Gabby Giffords' husband Mark Kelly successfully purchased a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun from Diamondback Police Supply on March 5, the gun store had denied his attempts to buy a handgun approximately two weeks before that (my emphasis).
According to sources, when Kelly first came into Diamondback Police Supply in February he tried to use a Texas ID to buy a handgun and was denied. Then, thirteen days later--on March 5-- Kelly walked back into the gun store with an Arizona ID that he used to purchase a handgun. He posted a video of that purchase made with a hidden "pocket camera" recording the transaction to prove that "background checks are easy."
