Letter: Heitkamp shows where priorities lie

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said about her vote regarding mandatory background checks for all gun purchases, “It’s all about North Dakota.” Really, Sen. Heitkamp?

A 2012 poll (Nate Silver) said only 44.8 percent of North Dakota was in favor of same sex marriage, and a recent poll by Mayors Against Illegal Guns said 94 percent of likely voters in North Dakota support mandatory background checks for all gun purchases.

You are in favor of same sex marriage (I applaud you for that) but not mandatory background checks. You voted for the 6 percent. Must be a very big war chest you are protecting.
