Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) votes 'no' to second amendment rights


On February 26, 2009 the United States Senate voted on a bill that would restore the second amendment rights of the citizens of Washington DC. Although the bill passed, Kirsten Gillibrand, supposed pro-gun representative, voted no. Charles Schumer (D-NY) also voted no but that is no surprise.
The voting record for the bill can be seen [...]

I had already heard that she was beginning to flip-flop on 2nd Amendment rights. More worried about getting re-elected than doing her job... Oh well, so much for her...

Yup. To bad to. It would have been nice to have something to admire about a democrat.

I'd like to be able to ask her why she voted no. Could be something like "because more guns will mean more killing" or she could have some other reason. Maybe she thinks the federal government should stay out of changing local laws in Washington DC. I know it's a stretch but I'd like to hear it and there hasn't been a press release about it on her senate web page. I was going to email her office and ask, hoping for a canned response with her reasoning, but her senate web page doesn't have a form to send her a message like some of the other senators.
