    Be sure to hit the poll:

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has moved the two rifles that she kept under the bed to protect her upstate New York home, her spokesman Matt Canter said Monday.

    "Given that the location of the guns has been disclosed, they have been moved for security reasons," Canter said.

    Gillibrand found a new place to store her guns over the weekend while she was upstate to endorse Democrat Scott Murphy in the March 31 special election being held to choose her successor to represent the 20th District in Congress.

    Gillibrand disclosed she had two guns under her bed in an interview with Newsday last week. An aide later said the guns were rifles -- she won one in a county fair raffle while campaigning -- and that she kept them for home security.

    Canter also said that the safety measure that the mother of two young children followed to ensure her family would be unharmed was keeping the bullets separate from the two rifles.

    This Friday, Gillibrand will make her first visit as U.S. senator to Long Island, home of Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), a gun-control activist who has threatened a primary challenge to the new senator in 2010 over the gun issue.



    "These are the shock troops (opencarry.org) of the gun lobby. And, they are not going away."

    Political ramifications aside, I don't publish the fact that I keep firearms in my house either. This is the primary reason why I refuse to obtain a Virginia CHP as long as my private information is treated as "public record".

    You would think that gun violence victims woukd be the first ones who would want to become gun owners/bearers to level the playing field for any future encounters...
