‘How do you trust someone when they change their stance and politics?’

Short answer: You don’t trust them.

At all. Hard to believe a Democrat would become a turncoat, huh?

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand vigorously championed Americans’ right to carry high-powered guns — before she turned against them.

Since the Newtown massacre, the senator has been at the forefront of the national campaign demanding stricter gun-control laws — including her own legislation to prevent gun trafficking.

It’s quite the conversion for a former upstate congresswoman who earned an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association.

When she represented a more conservative Albany-area district, she boasted of keeping two rifles under her bed. That was before her 2009 Senate appointment.

We suspect that ‘A’ rating will soon be re-graded.

Advocates for gun rights say she’s sold her soul for political gain.

“I think gun owners probably view her in ways they view Mitt Romney. How do you trust someone when they change their stance and politics?” said Richard Feldman, head of the Independent Firearms Owners Association.

We encourage the senator to publicly announce she’s forfeiting her rights to own a gun. Can’t be a hypocrite now, can we?

    She kinda reminds me of scary John Kerry who was for it before he was against it.

    Virginia’s Mark Warner did the same dance,although his was more ballet,I guess.He recently came out of the closet as a gun grabber after using his ‘support’ for gun rights to gain a term as Virginia’s highest tax governor before his mincing run for the senate in 2008.He may come out of many closets before the next election for his senate seat,we just don’t know which ones.
