Gun Control McCarthyism comes to an end in 2014

An end has come to another form of McCarthyism.  Gun Control advocate Congresswomen Carolyn McCarthy will not seek re-election in 2014.

GUN_CONTROL“I have decided not to seek re-election to the United States Congress in 2014,” McCarthy said in a statement. “I am forever grateful to my constituents for giving me the privilege of representing them in Congress for the past 18 years. As I plan for the next chapter of my life, I look forward to resuming my role as a citizen activist for the causes and principles that are so close to my heart.”

“…I am very proud of the many accomplishments my colleagues and I have achieved, and am grateful to my family, my staff and all the countless volunteers and supporters with whom I have worked during my time in office. The most important goal for any elected official is to help make residents’ lives better than they were, and as I enter my last year in office, I hope that together we continue to achieve that goal.”

 

McCarthy, who just turned 70, has been struggling with health issues – including lung cancer, for which she received chemotherapy and is now on medication – for several years, and she told her hometown newspaper, Newsday, that was a significant factor in her decision not to seek re-election.
