Are North Dakota Democrats Getting Cozy With Gun Confiscation?

Are North Dakota Democrats Getting Cozy With Gun Confiscation?

North Dakota’s top elected Democrat, Senator Heidi Heitkamp, has been testy with reporters lately when asked about gun control. The reason is obvious. Heitkamp’s fellow liberals want gun control, up to and including gun confiscation (more on that in a moment), very badly. But Heitkamp knows that in order to keep her office, which she

North Dakota Democrats Caught Being Big, Giant Hypocrites About Public Data

Over at Watchdog today I write about something a reader tipped me off to.

The newly-elected chairwoman of the North Dakota Democrats, state Rep. Kylie Oversen, also said recently in a Forum Communications profile that she intends to

North Dakota Democrats More Interested In Making Points Than Laws

In my newspaper column a couple of weeks ago I opined that North Dakota Democrats seemed less interested in advancing their agenda in the state Legislature than they are in crafting political talking points. An excerpt: Democrats often gripe about the “Republican supermajority” in North Dakota, but here’s some truth about that talking point: Being
