Heidi Heitkamp: Reported White House Gun Control Plans 'Way In Extreme' [View all]

Source: Huffington Post

Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp (N.D) told ABC's 'This Week' that gun control plans reportedly being considered by the White House are "way in extreme."

The Washington Post on Saturday reported that the Obama administration is weighing a broad approach to tackling the gun issue. Some of the measures apparently being weighed are universal background checks and stricter penalties for giving guns to a minor or bringing a gun near a school.

Heitkamp, who has an A-rating from the NRA, said that "I think you need to put everything on the table, but what I hear from the administration ó and if the Washington Post is to be believed ó thatís way ó way in extreme of what I think is necessary or even should be talked about.

She said that addressing the country's failing mental health system should be a bigger priority for Congress.
