_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 said Monday.
_”Given that the location of the guns has been disclosed, they have been moved for security reasons,” Gillibrand’s spokesman Matt Canter said. . . .
_He also said Gillibrand, mother of a 5-year-old and an infant, kept the ammunition separate from the empty guns, then later called to add that the rifles were locked in a case stored under the bed. She had refused to describe her gun safety measures.
Gun-control activists questioned the safety of placing guns under a bed where children can find them and burglars look first. The National Rifle Association said it is up to gun owners to safely store weapons.
