ABC News: On “This Week” (Heitkamp said) that while all options should be on the table to address gun violence, President Obama’s reported plans to curve shootings are ”way in extreme.”
This is why we have a tea party, and why Democrats continue to inadvertently advance conservatism, which actually brings to the party’s outrageously destructive agenda some credibility.
“I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration — and if the Washington Post is to be believed — that’s way — way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about. And it’s not gonna pass,” said Heitkamp, a member of the National Rifle Association. Heitkamp stressed the importance of addressing mental health as part of the effort to curve violent shootings. And so we need to have a broad discussion before we start talking about gun control.”
So smaller magazines, gun show checks and instituting a newly defined “assault rifle” ban is not on the table? This is "extreme?" Has she gone mad? She's an example of the kind of mental illness Heitkamp is talking about.
So pulverizing the tiny bodies of dead children with 8 to 10 rounds each isn't enough for Heitkamp? I hope public opinion, and most likely her own conservative voters who support common sense regulations, give her an earful.
