-NO SALE! Mark Kelly's Political Gun Purchase Rescinded

Contrary to what liberals want you to believe, a private business still has a right to refuse service to anyone they believe will negatively affect their business or their industry.
When you announce to the world that you are contemplating the purchase of an item for use other than it was intended, the prospective buyer is crossing a line.
The Buyer is not entirely honoring his side of the contract.
...And this goes doubly for firearms.
While the purchaser claims he is exercising his First Amendment Right visa-vis his Second Amendment Right, it still does not stand to compel a responsible business owner to close the transaction.

The following story pokes a giant hole into the Bloomberg and Brady Campaign position that "anyone can easily and readily purchase a firearm".

Enter Retired Astronaut and hubby of Gabby Giffords, Mark Kelly:
Store owner Doug MacKinlay said Monday in a Facebook post of his own that he "determined that was in my company's best interest to terminate this transaction prior to his returning to my store."
"While I support and respect Mark Kelly's 2nd Amendment rights to purchase, possess, and use firearms in a safe and responsible manner, his recent statements to the media made it clear that his intent in purchasing the Sig Sauer M400 5.56mm rifle from us was for reasons other then for his personal use," MacKinlay said in the statement.
He added that the store will return Kelly's money, donate the rifle to the Arizona Tactical Officers Association to be raffled as a fundraiser and make an additional contribution of $1,295 -- the value of the rifle -- to the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program.
