Freshman Senator Heitkamp (D-ND) thinks the president’s (totally unannounced) gun control proposals are too extreme. Yes, really.
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) on Sunday panned the White House’s reported gun-control proposals as “extreme.” [...]
“I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration — and if the Washington Post is to be believed — that’s way — way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about. And it’s not going to pass,” said Heitkamp.
Nah. Nope. Even if the president proposed a series of gun laws like Australia, it wouldn’t be too “extreme” especially knowing that Congress will surely whittle it all down to something lesser-than. Instead, he’s starting from a compromised position — and it’s definitely not “extreme.”
