Kelly rifle buy riles right

Gabby Giffords's husband Mark Kelly bought an AR-15 rifle the other day, and conservative pundits got excited. How can Kelly preach gun control while AT THE SAME TIME buying guns, they wondered loudly.

Kelly says he bought the gun as a learning exercise, and plans to donate it to the Tucson Police Department, but to that, the people who believe the president is a foreign-born Muslim say, "Hah! A likely story."

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).
