Gillibrand, in a “60 Minutes” profile that aired on Sunday, said that she was both “embarrassed” and “ashamed” of her old moderate gun stance, and seemed to humblebrag her way into patting her own back for turning over a new leaf and going liberal on gun control.
When Gillibrand reversed positions on gun control, the NRA in 2010 downgraded her to an F.
Gillibrand in response indicated that she was sheltered in the bubble of upstate New York, when she, in 2009, proudly announced that she kept two guns underneath her bed to protect her family home.
“If I want to protect my family, if I want to have a weapon in the home, that should be my right,” Gillibrand said at the time.
Alfonsi interrupted, “But you had lived in New York City for a decade,” but Gillibrand cut her off and expressed her embarrassment.
