I'm astounded at the behavior of the folks in our senate in allowing rapists, criminals and terrorists to have access to weapons without background checks. They have ignored the bulk of the folks in America. Especially egregious are the Democrats that worked with the Republicans to deny the American people Background checks that work. Heidi Heidekamp is one of those that really didn't have to vote the way she did since she has 5 years before reelection. This is a caricature of her this week. Each week I am going to try to feature each of those that voted against the checks starting with the Democrats.
When Heidi's office was questioned about "why" she voted the way she did, the response was that she got "so many calls" for those that didn't want the checks and she "doesn't believe the polls." Just like old Mitt. He didn't believe the polls either.
Joe Scarbourough deserves kudos for the work he and Mika are doing around this issue. Please let them know that you support their efforts for the American People. We deserve to have weapons security in our country.
