Letter: Heitkamp bows to the gun lobbySen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., shame on you for bowing to the gun lobby/NRA and voting against the bipartisan gun safety bill in the Senate. I realize that Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., also voted against the bill, but your vote hurts me more. I trusted YOU with my Democratic vote.
I cannot for the life of me think of any responsible prospective firearm purchaser that would be hurt by a background check, but many could be hurt by being negligent in applying extensive background checks.
