Anti-Gun Group Declares Victory Over Heitkamp: "She Got The Message"

Anti-Gun Group Declares Victory Over Heitkamp: "She Got The Message"

Over the weekend Senator Heidi Heitkamp made headlines when she called President Obama’s rumored gun control proposals “extreme.” That got the attention of the anti-gun left, who responded swiftly with an ad intending to shame Heitkamp into submission. Heitkamp’s media flaks responded quickly, assuring the anti-gun folks that Heitkamp isn’t ruling out gun control. “The

Heidi Heitkamp Isn't Against Gun Control

Senator Heidi Heitkamp has been getting a lot of attention from pro-gun folks because she called the President’s gun control proposals “extreme.” My contention, though, based on Heitkamp’s comments in context is that she’s just posturing. She’s not against gun control. She’s just against being perceived as anti-gun. As proof, there’s this response from Heitkamp’s

Anti-Gun Group Runs Ads: "Shame On You Senator Heidi Heitkamp"

To me Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s recent comments about gun control were just more of the blatant posturing of a left-wing politician desperate to ingratiate herself with a center-right constituency that we’ve come to expect from her.

But you’d think even an erstwhile “gun toting liberal” would know that Chicago is

Hoeven Goes Wobbly On Gun Control: "I'm Going To Have To See"

It’s no secret that Heidi Heitkamp, despite touting her “A-rating” from the NRA, is wobbly on gun rights issues. Unfortunately, North Dakota’s other Senator John Hoeven hasn’t exactly been outspoken in his support of gun rights either. On January 4th Hoeven appeared on C-Span’s Washington Journal program and was asked about his position on gun

Heitkamp Still Sending Mixed Signals On Gun Control

Senator Heidi Heitkamp was on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos today. She didn’t really have much of interest to say – generic pleadings for working togetherness, etc., etc. – but on gun control she was downright confusing. “Are you willing to sign on to some of the reforms that Vice President Biden and President
