I believe that Kelly was actually buying one for himself when he discovered that he was not as anonymous as he thought.
When the cell phone pictures hit the web he said he wasn't buying it for himself, it was to prove a point. He was going to turn it over to someone else.
I call Bullshit on this.
- Mostly because I believe it is a violation of the law to do exactly that. Cops would know that. It would have basically been a straw purchase. Was he providing it for operation Fast and Furious? He's a bit late for that.
- Combine that with the fact that he now says he was trying to prove how easy it was to buy an AR-15. If that was true he should have wasted his money on a private, cash and carry, purchase.
- If he was trying to prove that point he is a total idiot. He picked a gun with a 20 day hold on it. Seriously.
- Why was he trying to prove a point that no one on either side of the issue was questioning?
