Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign wants newly appointed Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) demonstrate she has “evolved” beyond being a NRA A-rated politician. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is supporting him in this:
“She’s saying she realizes that she represents a statewide constituency,” said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “One way she could prove she has evolved is to push this issue.”
Helmke said his group is seeking a meeting with Gillibrand to ask her to support legislation to require background checks on gun sales at gun shows, commonly referred to by activists as “closing the gun-show loophole.” A message left with Gillibrand’s office was not returned Tuesday afternoon.
I don’t see Helmke or McCarthy calling on Senator Schumer to “evolve” to represent upstate New York gun owners. I guess “shared values” don’t extend in the direction of supporting the U.S. Constitution.
Since “evolution” only goes in one direction in their minds just what is it they think of NRA members and politicians that support the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms? Do they think we are chimpanzees or something?
Why doesn’t don’t they just come out and say it? Paul Helmke and the politicians who support him think gun owners are just a bunch of n***ers. If we can’t be exterminated then we need to be regulated and kept in our place.
