Final Word: Mark Kelly gun buy shows law works

I received word Monday that the gun store that Mark Kelly attempted to buy a gun from won’t deliver the rifle because Kelly announced his plan to stage the buy in order to draw attention to how easy it is to buy an AR-15.

Kelly and his wife, Gabrielle Giffords, are heading up a political action committee formed to strengthen gun control laws in our country and his high profile sure helps raise awareness to the problem of too few regulations surrounding gun purchases.

But the store said, when it found out that Kelly was planning on buying the gun for a “third party,” in this case the Tucson Police Department, it nixed the purchase. In essence, making the point that the law works. Obviously it doesn’t always work this way but in this “made for TV” purchase, it did.

Winner: Gun store.

Gay marriage at the Supreme Court

At the Supreme Court Tuesday and Wednesday, it’s gay marriage on the agenda.

One justice noted during arguments that the issue of gay marriage is remarkably new, having officially surfaced within the last 15 years.

True, the societal changes have come fast but that’s the way we do things now, especially in America, where many people say Twitter is their number one news source. Opinions change faster than ever.

And young people, they don’t care at all.

I am hoping the justices recognize the need to weigh in on gay marriage, and I hope they look forward, not back.

Tiger Woods/Lindsey Vonn

Does anyone really buy the Tiger Woods/Lindsey Vonn romance?

The pictures they released the other day when they “came out” to devalue the story for the paparazzi seemed incredibly staged; more junior prom than 30-year-old couple, for sure.

But there’s no denying the fact that he is more marketable when it is perceived he is in a committed relationship, and she can only benefit by being associated with his once again rising star.

He sure is playing great. If he wins the Masters, he might have to fake an engagement.
