Dem Senator: Anti-Gun Legislation “Not Going to Pass”

Heidi Heitkamp

She may have just entered Congress for the first time, and may be a member of the Democrat Party, but North Dakota’s Senator Heidi Heitkamp says the movement to ban guns, and especially the White House’s proposal, is “way extreme” and she’s not going to support them. Moreover, Heitkamp says that she’s not the only one who rejects the plans, suggesting that the legislation is simply too extreme to ever pass Congress.

Host George Stephanopoulos asked Sen. Heitkamp: “Are you willing to sign on to some of the reforms that Vice President Biden and President Obama are already talking about?”

“You know, it’s unclear,” Heitkamp said. “I mean, you read Washington Post stories and you listen to what the administration says, and so I think what we need to do is we need to take a look at what happened at Sandy Hook. When I was attorney general, I was tasked with a national task force on school violence. We made a number of recommendations which, in fact, were adopted at Sandy Hook to help keep schools safer. They weren’t adequate.

“Let’s start addressing the problem,” said Heitkamp. “And to me, one of the issues that I think screams out of this is the issue of mental health and the care for the mentally ill in our country, especially the dangerously mentally ill. And so we need to have a broad discussion before we start talking about gun control.”

Stephanopoulos followed up: “Well, the White House is talking about that. But are you willing to talk about gun control, as well?”

“Well, I think you need to put everything on the table,” said Heitkamp. “But what I hear from the administration–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 going to pass.”

    A Democrat talking sense. There is hope for this world.

      Oddly enough, there are numerous Dems who know and talk sense. Their problem is that the ultra-left wing of their party has hijacked it and is running the show. With more Dems like Heitkamp, there would have been general agreement in Congress on any number of issues, including the debt, health care, taxes, etc. The radicals do not want agreement, though. That is because they are not smart enough to govern well and only want to rule badly because that better suits their personal limitations.
