Well, not only is Kennedy out as far as getting Hillary's Senate seat but now this bit of good info from Say Uncle:
Hillary Clinton’s replacement, Kristen Gillibrand, is reportedly pro-gun:
A big gun supporter, she’s been given a 100% approval rating by the NRA — she’s one of the extremely few Democrats on a federal level to win official NRA endorsement — and, this fall, she voted in favor of a controversial bill to repeal District of Columbia laws prohibiting the possession of semiautomatics.
This is good news for us. It has been my experience that folks that support gun rights also tend to support the rest of the Bill of Rights. Sounds like the good guys won on this one
