    Former Top Rated NRA Senator to Introduce Gun Ban This Week

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat and member of the so-called Blue Dog Coalition, plans to introduce an assault weapons ban this week. Gillibrand, the junior senator from New York, was at one time highly rated by the NRA for her advocacy of the Second Amendment.

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand poses with fellow gun-grabber Hillary Clinton.


    Newsday claims Gillibrand has “undergone a transformation” over the last three months and has moved away from “her House record that won the NRA’s top rating while remaining a supporter of Second Amendment rights to gun ownership.” Since her Senate appointment, she has “passed just about every test on guns set by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy,” who reintroduced a bill closing the so-called gun-show loophole at a news conference last week.

    It appears likely Ms. Gillibrand was a gun-grabber all along and used the Second Amendment as an election ploy. Polls indicate a large percentage of voters strongly support the Second Amendment.

    McCarthy’s bill, H.R. 6676, would utilize the National Instant Criminal Background Check System for background checks on all gun store employees and dealers. In addition to H.R. 6676, three other bills have been offered including laws that would make it illegal for known or suspected terrorists to buy guns.

    bah. I was happy with Patterson picking Gillibrand to replace Clinton... It could've been the only good thing that moron did, but instead she's flip flopping and abandoning the people who actually support her because she's afraid of a primary challenge next year. Guess I'll be voting for whatever republican comes out against her in the general election.

    It seems to be common practice for almost all politicians flip flop flip flop they just go where ever the money and the votes are or where they are told to go by their handlers.

    Even though it puts me at odds with my friends on the left, I support the Second Amendment. I don't own a gun myself, but my parents did. If the purpose of banning guns is to prevent people from doing harm, Congress should ban cars, knives, and other things that could hurt people.

    The fact of the matter is this: if someone seeks to destroy life, they will find way to do it. No matter what.

    Interesting ... because the choice probably cost him any political future he might have had.
