Mark Kelly's "Easy Gun Buy" Not So Easy, Canceled by Store Owner

The owner of a gun store in Tucson, Ariz., has canceled Mark Kelly’s purchase of an AR-15 because the gun control advocate doesn’t plan on keeping the assault weapon.

Kelly, a former astronaut and the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), bought the gun earlier this month to show how easy it was to buy an assault weapon. He said he planned on turning the gun over to Tucson police.
