When pimping gun control it’s a good idea to live by the ideals you wish to force upon others through the force of law. A good idea, but apparently not one abided by the forward faces of gun control legislation in Colorado.

We’ve discussed extensively the hypocrisy of Bloomberg lobbyist Adam “Machine Gun” Eichberg firing off an “assault” weapon with a 20-round magazine at Senator Brophy’s annual watermelon shoot, all the while trying to ban those same items for use among the non-politically connected.

Last week it was revealed that not only were gun control lobbyists being duplicitous, but a top gun control poster boy, handpicked by the Golden Dome Democrats to testify, was also faking phony piousness.

Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, was caught on camera buying an AR-15 “assault” rifle with a high capacity magazine only a day after testifying before the Legislature on behalf of universal background checks.

Never mind the fact that Congresswoman Giffords’ shooter passed a background check, or that Kelly pushed the lie that 40% of Colorado gun sales are done without a background check — which 9News apologized for showing video of Kelly saying.

Instead wonder why no one in the Colorado press corps has deemed Kelly’s stunning hypocrisy worth conveying to their readers.

After being caught on camera buying this “baby killer” that Kelly has been rallying against across the country, he quickly took to his Facebook page to say he was just buying the gun to prove how easy it was to buy a gun…after a background check.

I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun store to buy a 45. As I was leaving, I noticed a used AR-15. Bought that too. Even to buy an assault weapon, the background check only takes a matter of minutes. I don’t have possession yet but I’ll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do.

Uh huh. As a loyal Peak reader told us, that’s like Mayor Hancock going to hookers just to prove how easy it is. Hookers and guns for me, but not for thee.
