Sen. Kristen Gillibrand of New York, who took Hillary Clinton's U.S. Senate seat when the latter was named secretary of state, has long been a champion of the Second Amendment and law abiding firearms owners.
Since assuming the junior senator position, she has reversed her stance on gun rights, creating confusion in the wake of her latest moves. Observers suggest "anti-gun" has been her position all along, but that she sucked up to voters in her northern New York district, a more conservative region, in order to get elected in the first place.
Which shows, she is not a statesman. Not a lawmaker. She is an out and out politician.
