No parent should have to send their children
to school wondering if they will come home.
Shame on you, Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) for telling the country on
Sunday that the Obama Administration’s response to Newtown—which may include universal
background checks and a ban on assault rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines—is
“extreme.” In truth, 74% of NRA members support criminal background checks on all gun
buyers.* And a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines could have
prevented the loss of precious lives at Newtown, Oak Creek, Aurora, Tucson and Virginia Tech.
Blocking common-sense solutions that would keep military-style weapons out of dangerous
hands? Now THAT is extreme.
Tell Senator Heitkamp it’s time for her to stand up for America’s families,
NOT the gun lobby. Call her today at (202) 224-2043.
