Letter: The 10 percent in North Dakota?Not disputed – 90 percent of Americans support universal background checks on gun purchases – getting the “shadier” Internet and gun show gun sellers in line with legitimate gun sellers. Of that 90 percent, many are NRA members and gun owners. So what the heck do Sens. John Hoeven, R-N.D., and Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., think? Do they believe North Dakota is populated with that other 10 percent?
They have failed to represent us – sucked up to the NRA in a bad way. We will not forget that. Shame on you for making us feel yet again embarrassed for being North Dakota residents.
Strength of character? I guess not. Do you think there are any of us who won’t place the blame of the next gun attack directly on your shoulders?
