Honestly, how can anyone who’s been paying attention take him seriously? The NRA raises the most money after tragedies like Sandy Hook and guns fly off the shelves because the NRA stokes the fears of gun owners?
As gun banners often are, he is dead wrong. The reason the guns flew off the shelves after Sandy Hook is that the liberals revealed too much of their hand too fast. They actually got to the point that they were openly talking about bans and confiscations, as has been documented in this space before.
And as anyone who’s been paying attention knows, “gun safety” is the gun-banners’ term for yet more gun control. Kelly even acknowledges this, albeit implicitly, as he says nothing about the Four Rules or any of their corollaries.
Frankly, as an NRA member, I am very glad Mark Kelly isn’t going to be in Houston this weekend. The fewer people like him in the NRA the better.
