NRA Reminds Gillibrand of Her Past Support After She Attacked Them During Town Hall — And Brings Receipts

The National Rifle Association (NRA) took aim at 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) after she attacked it during her Fox News town hall on Sunday and brought its receipts along.

Gillibrand went after the NRA during her town hall event, during which she claimed the nonprofit Second Amendment organization “car[ed] more about their profits than the American people” and referred to them as “the worst organization in this country.”

Watch the video below:

The NRA did not take the insult sitting down, blasting the 2020 Democratic hopeful as willing to “say anything” so that she can crack 1 percent in the polls.

The organization also pointed out that, during Gillibrand’s time as the representative for New York’s 20th District, she wrote a letter praising it for its work “to protect gun owners’ rights.”

“Gillibrand called us the worst org in the country, but when she represented NY20, she wrote us: ‘I appreciate the work that the NRA does to protect gun owners rights, and I look forward to working with you for many years,'” the NRA tweeted. “Now that she’s looking to crack 1%, she’ll say anything.”

The NRA’s shot came the day after the New York senator’s town hall event.

As IJR Red previously reported, host Chris Wallace put Gillibrand in the hot seat when she falsely claimed that President Donald Trump did not ban bump stocks because of the Second Amendment-centered association’s influence.

Wallace asked Gillibrand how it was “brave” of her to flip her stance on guns and immigration after she shifted from representing a rural New York district to the entire state as a senator, to which she responded by saying she “[understood] the importance of having a hunting culture and preserving our Second Amendment rights” and gave examples of urban families hurt by gun violence while blaming the NRA.

Wallace noted that the flip seemed more driven by “politics than principles,” prompting Gillibrand to fall back on the Golden Rule of “treat[ing] others the way you want to be treated.”

Gillibrand is an odious sort. There is absolutely zero honor in the DemCommunist Party.

I have been a life member of the NRA since the 70’s and it’s a great organization. I can’t remember the number of guns or the amount of dividends I have gotten from them over these years. Oh yes, NONE!! They don’t sell guns and are a not for profit organization. Are these anti-2nd amendment able to comprehend anything or are they just moronic liars. (No answer needed)

Gotta get those NYC votes. Except for the tax losses, New York State should try to give New York City to New Jersey. I wonder if Jersey would give $24 worth of beads for it?

The presidential election of 2004 was the 1st one i was old enough to vote in. I clearly remember telling one of my professors that i was going to vote for W, and he should too, because Kerry “flip-flops like a fish.” Gillibrand has taken up that mantle with an eye to outdoing Kerry on a masive scale.

I wonder which part of the phrase “NON-profit organization” the virtue-signaling Sen. Twit from socialist NY state doesn’t understand? Why did she blatantly and repeatedly lie? Oh, wait, got it – Democrat… her lips are moving!

No, the worst organization in this country is Gillibrand’s hypocritical campaign. I’m glad we have organizations like the NRA, Gun Owners of America, and the National Assoc for Gun Rights to help support our Constitutional rights against pathetic, political attacks from people like her.
