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.

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.

As reported by Infowars last week, the House is currently working on H.R. 2159, The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009, sponsored by Rep. Peter King of New York. The bill would “increase public safety by permitting the Attorney General to deny the transfer of a firearm or the issuance of firearms or explosives licenses to a known or suspected dangerous terrorist.”

Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told WorldNetDaily the bill will likely be used in junction with the DHS “Rightwing Extremism” report that characterizes advocates of the Second Amendment and others as terrorists. “By those standards, I’m one of [DHS Secretary] Janet Napolitano’s terrorists,” Pratt said. “This bill would enable the attorney general to put all of the people who voted against Obama on no-gun lists, because according to the DHS, they’re all potential terrorists.”

Senator Gillibrand is working closely with gun-grabbing organizations, including New Yorkers Against Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign, according to Matt Canter, Gillibrand’s spokesman. New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and others are working with Gillibrand on “anti-trafficking legislation to stop the flow of illegal guns,” Canter told Newsday.

The Obama administration recently attempted to link the right to own firearms to drug cartel violence in Mexico. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other administration officials have said 90 percent of the weapons used to commit crimes in Mexico come from the United States. In fact, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S. Statistics reveal that most of the guns flowing into Mexico come from the black market, Russian crime organizations, South America, Asia, Guatemala, and the Mexican Army.

It appears that Prison Planet has confused Kirsten Gillibrand with Carolyn McCarthy... I posted the original quote a few days ago...
http://www.usacarry.com/forums/2nd-...-introduce-assault-weapons-ban-next-week.html

Basically Gun Ban Carolyn McCarthy commends Kirsten Gillibrand for continually selling out the Second Amendment SINCE she was appointed by Governor Patterson to fill Billary Clinton's Senate seat... (Even though McCarthy called Patterson and tried to convince him to not appoint Gillibrand)
Kirsten Gillibrand had earned a A rating from the NRA by having a 100% perfect record supporting the Second Amendment in the House of Representatives...
Gillibrand to face another test on gun control -- Newsday.com

Moreover, McCarthy simply stated that the Assault Weapons Ban that she (McCarthy) intends to introduce next week (which is now the week we are in) will be a test for Gillibrand...

I voted for Gillibrand when she was in the House, but I see that she has, since her appointment by Gov. Patterson, been voting in lock-step with that OTHER great senator from the Empire State, Chuckie Schumer:mad:. But I'm willing to wait and give her the benefit of doubt and see how she votes on this and other gun-control bills which are sure to come up with this democratic congress we're stuck with (for now):unsure:.

This is payback to the Democrats in New York for allowing her to be appointed. When she was appointed, Rep. McCarthy, the rabid dog anti-gunner, said she would make sure that if she was appointed, she would never be elected, as she would make sure there was never a Pro-Gun representative from New York. Isn't that nice?

it should be totally justified for we the people to have our so called leaders fired for lying to get elected...

Someone in Congress lie? Anyone that is in Congress and opposes our Second Amendment rights has already violated their oath of office and should be removed from office immediately!

Whatever it takes! The system does and CAN work! Fire ALL of them in the 2010 elections!
