U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) Retirement

Rabid gun-banning US Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) was a Long Island LPN and housewife who was elected to Congress in 1996 on a single-issue gun control platform in a sympathy vote after her husband was killed and son wounded in a mass shooting in 1993 by an illegally armed psychopath on a “gun-free” commuter train leaving “gun free” New York City.

She was unqualified in the beginning and remains so, perhaps being best known as thinking that a barrel shroud (which she proposed to ban) is “the shoulder thing that goes up.” But she defends her dismal record anyway.


McCarthy has now announced she is retiring from Congress after not seeking a 10th term due to illness, and may do some teaching. Although we wish her well with her recovery, we are very happy to see her leave Congress (and hopefully politics). We also found no teaching credentials and very little education in her biography.
