    Thats right, congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand is a Blue Dog, and an outspoken advocate for the 2nd amendment. :bowdown:

    That is good. As long as there are at least a few decent democrats amongst all the gun hating douche bags, then our rights at least have a chance.

    No, and typically these democrats are more against regulation than the moderates who support the 2nd amendment. Think Jim Webb only a little more divided from the rest of the party.

    McCarthy knocks Gillibrand as choice for Senate

    BY REID J. EPSTEIN | [email protected]
    January 23, 2009

    Rep. Carolyn McCarthy said yesterday Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand's gun control views make her unacceptable for the U.S. Senate and threatened a primary challenge in 2010 if Gov. David A. Paterson selects the Hudson Democrat to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    McCarthy, who became a prominent gun-control advocate after her husband died and her son was injured in the 1993 massacre at the Long Island Rail Road's Merillon Avenue station that killed six people and injured 19 others, said she is "furious" about reports that Paterson today may select Gillibrand, who last year earned an "A" grade from the National Rifle Association.

    "I've spent 15 years trying to prevent gun violence in this country, and if he does pick her and if no one goes and primaries her, I will primary her," McCarthy said. "I will do that. I'm not going to give up on this. I'm not going to let New York State get represented by someone who gets a 100 percent rating from the NRA."

    Sen. Charles Schumer, who like McCarthy is a strong proponent of gun control, asked the Mineola Democrat to refrain from protesting Gillibrand's selection, McCarthy said.

    "He said, 'Why don't you give her a chance?'" McCarthy said. "I said, 'I've talked to her on the floor, I'm sorry, I can't.'"

    Schumer spokesman Josh Vlasto confirmed McCarthy called Schumer yesterday. He "made it clear to the congresswoman that he didn't know if it was Gillibrand, but if it was, like any Democrat, we should give that person a chance," Vlasto said.

    McCarthy said she will boycott today's Albany ceremony in which she said she expects Paterson to announce Gillibrand as the Senate pick.

    "I will not show any support whatsoever," she said. "The majority of New Yorkers are trying to reduce gun violence. I just feel that everybody should know what her record is. If she changes, let's see it."

    Gillibrand, whose office did not return phone calls yesterday, touts her gun acumen on her Web site and said she intends to support the Second Amendment.

    "I learned at an early age how to safely handle a gun and I believe that every law-abiding citizen should always have the right to own arms," she says on her Web site.

    Nassau Democratic chairman Jay Jacobs said he did not expect McCarthy to follow through on her threat of a primary challenge. "What she meant to say is that if Gillibrand is selected, that she would need to moderate her views on gun control," he said.

    Told of Jacobs' assessment, McCarthy said she intends to support a challenge should Gillibrand be selected.

    I love how democrats preach about inclusion and acceptance, only if it's in line with their views. Because she supports the 2nd amendment she's "unacceptable".

    Pure amusement.

    Edit: and McCarthy is as more of a physco than the "gun nuts" she professes to hate.

    McCarthy is another fucking lunatic on a rampage. It's sad that her husband was killed, but idiotic to blame it on guns or the NRA. If she was at all serious about preventing violence, she would address the root cause, rather than the method used in only 9% of violent crime.

    If you take JFK's views and put them on a politician in 2009, he'd be a moderate Republican. The rest of the family went south after him. :hsd:

    Democrats where different then. They weren't always this left. They were actually quite conservative once.
    Fighting for the farmers, the small man. The one's with lives and properties to protect, a family business.
    How the times have changed.
