Heidi Heitkamp Gun Control Criticism Attracts Ad Campaign By Advocacy Group

Commented Jan 22, 2013 at 05:24:00 in Politics

“Senator Heitkamp, First I would like to say congratulations for your victory. The reason for this mesage is to back you in your efforts for in an attempt in standing up for our rights to keep and bear arms. As you know in this time emotions that are sttill running high after the resent rash of shootings. Not too sound as if I am Heartless my heart goes out to everybody who has lost a loved one to violence of any type whether a firearm was involved or not. Infact I would also like to state that the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementry School In Newtown, CT. was horrific. Something that no parent wants to think about, or even imagine. It is in my opinion that banning certian types of firearms is not going to stop the gun violence. Tougher and mandatory Federal punishments will, I believe that anyone convicted of any degree of murder or criminal manslaughter face public death sentence, Regaurdless of the weapon. If Gun control laws work the city of Chicago would have the lowest crime rate, and the State of Arizona would have the highest crime rate. Unfortunatly it is just the oppsite. . However unlike the anti-gun lobby which is making the most noise about banning guns. That has gotten the President Obama's attention the NRA is asking the majority along with contacting our Legislators in both the House and the Senate. In closing I would like to say thank you.”
