Following his Tuesday promise to try to get his wife’s friend Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) booted from office if he didn’t vote for gun control, former astronaut Mark Kelly took to badgering the senator on Twitter today.

 

Flake sat next to Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and helped her to her feet every time she wanted to join in a standing ovation for President Obama at the 2012 State of the Union. When Giffords stepped down from Congress the next day, Flake stood by her side and held her hand.

Kelly acknowledged Flake is a “good friend” of Giffords, but said they would both work to throw him under the bus if he voted against the background-check compromise.

“If there was the right candidate out there and [Flake] didn’t support this legislation, … you know friendship is one thing … saving people’s lives, especially first-graders’, is another,” Kelly told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

"Want to rethink and join me and Gabby in making Arizona safer?"

Sure, Marky. Let's prosecute those who attempt to buy with invalid IDs and try to make straw purchases.

Then let's focus on why the Tucson PD let your wife's shooter run around for years knowing he was a dangerous lunatic.
