All politics are local...Heidi will never support "tinkering" with guns,UNLESS there is a mass shooting here someday.

Obviously, the MDN lacks any intelligence when formulating questions. Most all third graders could compose this questionnaire selection better than the amateur who did. I did not see a question about Berg kissing up to Boehnor or the tea party. Well, I guess he did on every vote and that is why he was turn out despite all the Rove/Koch money.

At least independent Heidi has a mind of her own...Sen. Hoeven however will never have to "cave" on any issues...we know what he's all about straight down the line from the keystone pipeline(BIG OIL) to the military industrial complex.

Do you think Heitkamp will cave next time twenty first graders are gunned down at school?

Of coarse she'll back Obama(he's great) her words!She is a blue blooded liberal at heart,she only does what she has to, to get conservative N.D. votes.Look how she kisses up to the natives, that's what won her the election(0ld democrat trick)

Congress should concentrate more on immigration policy and tinker with that.
Especially immigrants from Chechnya, it would be a good idea to scrutinize the immigration policy concerning immigrants from Chechnya.
Better leave the second amendment just like it is.
Maybe Heidi read the bill and like a few other Democrats realized what they were trying to pass would not have stopped one single killing that has happened in the last mass shootings.
Why pass a law that doesn't stop what your using to "campaign on" Obama USED Sandy Hook parents to further his own agenda.. maybe Heidi was displeased with that action as most of the normal thinking people here in the USA are.
Obama= N3ever let a crisis go to waste.. He grabbed those people up and used them as a shield to try to push thru a law that would not have saved even one of those kids lives.
Said it before will say it again.. Obama is a slug, he uses people like a ladder..steps on them to boost himself up. Only scum uses someone else's sorrow to promote themselves.. Obamas just another ambulance chasing lawyer..

Polls show more people favor universal background checks on gun sales than approve of Mother Teresa, with the issue receiving higher polling numbers than just about anything else.

"Tinkers with the second amendment"? (my spell correction tells there is one "m")
What part of "A well regulated militia" don't you understand?
I have never heard a second amendment zealot quote the first clause of the second amendment.

Exactly! Back when we didn't have a standing army. That doesn't mean every yahoo is entitled to a gun.
Don't shoot me, I just a messenger!
A quote from 'One Gun Too Few' by Dr. Edwin Vieira dated April 20, 2007:
"First, that all so-called gun-free zones are exceedingly dangerous places. For all gun-free zones amount to self-defense prohibition zones for honest citizens, and therefore free-fire zones for psychopaths, terrorists, and other homicidal criminals. If common sense did not, certainly the experiences documented by researchers such as John Lott confirm that the less gun free an area is (in terms of firearms in the immediate possession of honest citizens ready and willing to use them), the less violent crime occurs there."
Looks like he's been right all along.
North Dakotan's are a very confused bunch indeed...To quote someone who recently said, "And let me tell ya, life isn't fair" should very well know that a bunch of people are saying the same thing...on this issue.
How in the world can a state who has the least amount of citizens (give or take a few thousand) be the moral compass for this country?
Whether it's gun control, abortion issues, gay & lesbian rights and immigration this state represents 0.00206060606 of the collective vote.
I guess having two Senators with two votes out of a hundred seems fair to say a state like New York?
Lends an arguement to taxation without fair representation but wait the House takes care of that little twist of numbers thingy doesn't it? Won't go into the theories of the politics but at the center of it all is money...Money can and does elect Senators. The NRA is all about money and money from someone is what ND needs so "caving" could be construed as begging...and ND's will

typically support any "caving" that will or will not compromise their hypocritical thinking as it's essential to their survival.

Ahh but VERITAS, my car has "Callifornia Emissions Standards". With only a small fraction of vehicles in ND compared to California we have no smog issues. Yet I have to pay additional dollars for my ND car because of California pollution? Maybe we should leave everything up to the States to decide based on how things are different in each?

Do you think Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Sen. John Hoeven will again cave to the NRA and their money next time this comes to a vote?
I like the way the MDN "tinkers" with all their questions.

73...Wow!! To the penalty box you go for #1. We all pay for ND Pollution from power plants both monetarily and in some cases literally. #2.They, as in Californians have to pay a higher tax structure to help out you know who (some have cliched the term)The puck stops in ND because of it's historical dependency on the wealth of other states and finally.....
There would be no mention of your last line had it been for the recent oil bonanza your legislators are shipping south so think about it whenever someone asks you "soup or salad". Man cannot live by arrogance alone!

"Could it be fewer and fewer of his OWN party are NOT listening to him?"
Two different reasons people are quoted...Either brilliant or dumb... My coin came up tails as in that of a donkey. Do the math.
One often wonders about symbolism and having to look at the grandstand of say 1000 people when 500 are wearing red and the other 500 blue...
They've been morally persuaded dusty with the promise from their constituents that their contibutions to humanity will someday get them a bobblehead contract like yo kiero from Taco Bell and will gain value on Ebay some day. Good luck!

When your kids, family members or loved ones are gunned down like worthless dogs -- you hoople heathens will change your tune.

Namexxx, I think the lessons being learned from families of people "gunned down like dogs" is that they very intimately recognise the problems in America's current gun culture: a thing which encompasses its laws, its attitudes, and to some extent economic conditions. People who needlessly lose a loved person to gun violence tend to support better regulation, with few retreating for their bunkers.

Veritas, verbose whining, but whining just the same. And the accusations of bribery are lame unless you can prove it.
I bet Heidi can just feel the love of Democrats out here in podunk.
By the way, good on ya, Senator, even if life ain't fair.
