Letter: Heitkamp sounds like Rick BergI am troubled by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s, D-N.D., stance on gun control. She was elected by moderates. What the president is putting into effect by an executive order is moderate. The gun-control legislation the president is asking Congress to pass is sensible. It is not extreme.
I hope Heitkamp is reconsidering her view and will vote for gun control as proposed by the president. If she doesn’t, she will be doing what Rick Berg would have done had he been elected.
