A gun shop in Tucson, Ariz., has canceled an effort by retired astronaut Mark Kelly, an outspoken gun-control advocate, to buy a semiautomatic rifle as a way of demonstrating how easy it is to buy powerful weapons.
Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was one of the targets of a mass shooting near Tucson on Jan. 8, 2011, had sought to purchase the Sig Sauer M400, a type of AR-15 assault weapon, to demonstrate how easy or hard it would be to buy such a rifle. Kelly and his wife have become active figures in current gun-control efforts after the shooting that left Giffords recovering from head wounds. Six people were killed and 13 injured in the attack by Jared Loughner, who is serving life in prison without parole.
