One of many flip-flops has been displayed by Kirsten Gillibrand in this primary season. In order to compete with the other progressives in her party, Gillibrand has been bad-mouthing the NRA and insisting she is dead set against them. The NRA decided to strike back, and they have posted a copy of a letter an adoring Gillibrand sent them. In the letter, she takes all the same stands the NRA does, but now that it’s a political liability, she is running from it as if her life depends on it. (Gillibrand is getting desperate ever since she found out that I am tied with her for the Democrat nomination with 0% of the vote.)
The National Rifle Association (NRA) let Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have it again, tweeting out an old “love letter” they received from the senator while she served in the House of Representatives.
On Monday, Gillibrand — who is one of the 24 candidates in the Democratic presidential primary field — posted a video of her speaking at the Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Forum calling on people to start “speaking out” on gun legislation.
[Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell] could call us back into Congress today,” said Gillibrand. “We could pass universal background checks today. We can ban assault weapons. We can ban large magazines. We can have a federal anti-trafficking law today.”
The NRA saw this and fired back at Gillibrand, replying to the senator’s tweet with a scan of a letter they received from her in 2008 while she was a member of the House of Representatives for New York.
“Wait…” wrote the NRA. “Did you also show them the love letter you wrote us?”
