Kirsten Gillibrand 6 hours ago:   Friday Jul 1 - 10:00am RT @DataProgress: Today, @SenGillibrand joins the DFP blog to break down the new gun control package signed into law last week.
The bipartisan plan is widely favored by voters: new polling finds Americans overwhelmingly support the provisions in the package.
https://t.co/EBG8BZrkks Kirsten Gillibrand 1 day ago:   Thursday Jun 30 - 11:18am We knew this was coming, and we're already working to stop this plan in its tracks. I'm working on a bill to protect your constitutional right to travel freely across state lines for reproductive health care. https://t.co/g8MPR304uJ Kirsten Gillibrand 2 days ago:   Wednesday Jun 29 - 4:57pm Now more than ever, we need a Data Protection Agency to hold Big Tech accountable for protecting your data and protecting Americans from politically-motivated prosecutions for exercising their reproductive freedom. https://t.co/O6DL83O8y7 Kirsten Gillibrand 2 days ago:   Tuesday Jun 28 - 10:28pm Congratulations, @KathyHochul! You're exactly the governor that New York needs at this critical moment. Now onto victory in November! https://t.co/WJQP7o3oRh

It is unconscionable for our government to force you to carry a pregnancy that could put your life and health at risk. Kirsten Gillibrand 6 days ago:   Saturday Jun 25 - 2:47pm Today @JoeBiden signed the most significant gun safety legislation in thirty years into law, including provisions from my bill to make gun trafficking a federal crime. To the students, the parents, and all the activists who worked so hard to make this victory possible: Thank you. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Friday Jun 24 - 2:19pm Yesterday the Supreme Court didn't believe in states' rights when they want to set commonsense gun safety laws. Today they believe in states' rights when they want to attack our reproductive freedom. This court no longer represents logic, equal justice, or the will of the people. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Friday Jun 24 - 10:50am When you take away someone's ability to make their own decisions about their own body, they are no longer a citizen. They no longer have freedom, bodily autonomy, or basic civil rights. That's the America that the Supreme Court's decision overturning #RoeVWade just created. https://t.co/ojjfvfaQp0 Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 23 - 10:17pm The Supreme Court decision this morning was a major blow. But we just passed the most significant gun safety bill in nearly 30 years — including provisions from my bill to make gun trafficking a federal crime.
Your voices and your votes matter. Never stop fighting. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 23 - 2:43pm I met with the families of those wounded and killed in Buffalo. I've seen their pain and their grief. And I would do anything it takes to spare other families from that pain and stop this gun violence epidemic. Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 23 - 2:42pm We've already seen what happened in other states that made it easier for anyone to carry concealed weapons in public. Now the Supreme Court's decision has put millions of Americans in New York and across the country at even greater risk of gun violence. https://t.co/uRQwhZ9Gwu Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 23 - 2:42pm This argument is callous and absurd. The mass shooting in Buffalo shows why we need to do MORE to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people instead of taking away one of the basic, commonsense protections New York already had. https://t.co/rUPsSGZUWz Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Thursday Jun 23 - 1:32pm The last thing we should be doing in a gun violence epidemic is making it easier for potentially dangerous people to carry weapons in public. Lives are at risk because of this irresponsible decision. https://t.co/GQSg64Tkpz Kirsten Gillibrand 1 week ago:   Wednesday Jun 22 - 5:50pm We have a deal to pass the most important anti-gun violence legislation in nearly 30 years.

That's why I've fought so hard to make gun trafficking a federal crime. Cracking down on the flood of illegal guns is one of the best ways we can fight gun violence. https://t.co/bq0yPjHklT Kirsten Gillibrand 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jun 16 - 7:51pm This is big: Today the Senate passed the PACT Act, which guarantees that veterans exposed to toxic burn pits will finally get the health care they deserve.
