Grab some popcorn

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership attempts to call out Gillibrand:

A gun-control group is calling on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) to sponsor a gun-control bill to show that she’s evolving from being a favorite of the gun lobby to a true blue-state senator.

“She’s saying she realizes that she represents a statewide constituency,” said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “One way she could prove she has evolved is to push this issue.”

Helmke said his group is seeking a meeting with Gillibrand to ask her to support legislation to require background checks on gun sales at gun shows, commonly referred to by activists as “closing the gun-show loophole.” A message left with Gillibrand’s office was not returned Tuesday afternoon.

This could get interesting.

Maybe she could sponsor the national reciprocity bill.

    How about if she offered a bill that made the sunset of the AWB permanent. . . or maybe one that made it harder for states to have their own AWB and abuse gun owners like in MA. . .

    The anti-rights crowd expects her, as someone who is alleged to represent the interests of the state of New York, you know, the entire PURPOSE of the senate’s existence, to push for something that would remove power from the state.

    Sure, why the hell not, it’s just a name recognition/popularity contest these days anyway.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
