Gun Control Group Endorses Gillibrand

Thursday, August 12, 2010

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has been endorsed for election by a leading gun control group, two years after earning a top rating from the National Rifle Association.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence notes that Gillibrand had been an NRA favorite when she was an upstate congresswoman in a Republican district. But the group says that in less than two years as an appointed U.S. senator, she has become a leader in what the Brady group calls sensible gun laws.

Typical politician.
She seemed to be principled, but as soon as the wind blew, she flip-flopped.
