Letter: Is this their idea of ‘thoughtful’?

I want to thank our two North Dakota senators for their thoughtful approach to gun control. For example, Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., would like to see a “thoughtful comprehensive approach” including to “keep guns … out of the hands of people with mental illnesses.”

Of course, while we are developing that comprehensive approach, let’s make sure that people with mental illnesses are free to buy an assault rifle with a high- capacity magazine at a gun show or over the Internet because there are no background checks in those venues.

That’s certainly thoughtful … isn’t it?
