Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp Slams Obama's Gun Control Push as 'Way in Extreme of What I Think Is Necessary...'

That's freshman Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, clearly way outside of the Beltway mentality. She's a pretty standard Democrat but obviously smart about the politics of gun control. She hammers the administration's --- and by extension Dianne Feinstein's --- gun-grab agenda. See: "Sen. Heidi Heitkamp: Reported Obama Gun Proposals ‘Way in Extreme’" (via Memeorandum).

Also at the clip is freshman GOP Rep. Tom Cotton, a war veteran and Harvard Law School graduate. And there's vapid Texas freshman Rep. Joaquín Castro, an affirmative action Democrat if there ever was one.
