Newly Appointed New York Senator Moves Guns After Newsday Spills The Beans

Sen. Kirstin Gillibrand, the New York democrat appointed to replace Hillary Clinton in the U.S. Senate, was forced to move her firearms in her upstate New York home after Newsday newspaper disclosed in its publication where she keeps them hidden.

The senator, a pro-gun pol in a party well known for its anti-gun, anti-safety rhetoric, mentioned in a lengthy interview with the newspaper that she keeps two rifles for self defense under her bed. After the paper printed this fact, she very smartly moved them to a new undisclosed location in the home.
It is NO ONE'S BUSINESS where a law abiding firearm owner keeps their guns. Printing such was bush league on the part of Newsday, and put the senator and her family in danger by telling the bad guys where her self defense firearms are kept.

Kudos to sen. Gillibrand for not apologizing for exercising the basic human right of self defense.
