More Media Heat for Kirsten Gillibrand

From the Albany Times-Union.  There is definitely a concerted effort among the New York State media establishment to shame Gillibrand out of her support for gun rights.  This puts her in a difficult position.  I would encourage everyone in New York, especially Republicans, to send their new Senator a note of support, expressing their appreciation … Continue reading “More Media Heat for Kirsten Gillibrand”

More Hating on Kirsten Gillibrand

This time from Maureen Dowd: So now we have an N.R.A. handmaiden in Bobby Kennedy’s old seat? Kirsten Gillibrand, a k a Tracy Flick, accepting the honor with her Republican pal Al D’Amato beside her on stage? Gross. This is what passes for opinion these days?  Talk about catty.

I will admit I was thoroughly wrong about Kirsten Gillibrand.  But at the time I was her advocate, there was no evidence to doubt Gillibrand’s … Continue reading “Gillibrand Sponsors Lautenberg Bill”

Schumer, Gillibrand Want Records

Oh how wrong I turned out to be about Kirsten Gillibrand.  The New York Daily News even notes the flip flopping.  Gillibrand and Schumer want to keep the NICS records for ninety days again, much like they were under Clinton.  This goes to show there are no principles in politics, only interests.  The anti-gun folks … Continue reading “Schumer, Gillibrand Want Records”

Kopel Urges Gillibrand to Stick to Her Guns

Dave Kopel has an excellent article in the National Review that’s well worth reading, offering Senator Gillibrand some very smart political reasoning for sticking to her position on gun rights: Thanks to the New York media, if there’s one thing that New York voters know about Kirsten Gillibrand, it’s that she’s pro-gun. For most of … Continue reading “Kopel Urges Gillibrand to Stick to Her Guns”
