However, Gillibrand, a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights, is still on the radar screen, and that worries Jackie Hilly, NYAGV’s executive director.
“I don’t think she represents most New Yorkers on gun-control issues,” Hilly said Wednesday.
Gillibrand, a Democrat who easily won a second term last year, has received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, which opposes many gun-control measures. Hilly said the rating shows Gillibrand is out of step with most New Yorkers.
I think she represents far more New Yorkers than you do, Jackie Hilly.Â I’m willing to bet the number of NRA members in New York State far exceeds the members of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.
