Heitkamp (D): Gun Proposals 'Way in Extreme'
Quote:Sen. Heidi Heitkamp , D-N.D, told me this morning on "This Week" that while all options should be on the table to address gun violence, President Obama's reported plans to curb shootings are "way in extreme" when I pressed her this morning on the kinds on measures she could potentially support.

"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, a member of the National Rifle Association.

Heitkamp, who has an "A" rating from the NRA and was elected in a state that Gov. Mitt Romney won by nearly 20 points, stressed the importance of addressing mental health as part of the effort to curb violent shootings.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Mental health really is the 8000 lb elephant in the room. My own experiences with my stalker are a 100% in your face reminder of that to me on a personal level.

Sick people are ignored until they "go off."
Evil people will always find a way to cause mayhem and destruction. The Bath School Massacre, Oklahoma City Bombing and 9/11 were massive tragedies without any guns involved.
