Heitkamp Statement on the Manchin-Toomey Amendment

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp released the following statement regarding the Manchin-Toomey Amendment:

"I've been adamant from the very beginning of this conversation that the focus should be on mental health issues, full and accurate reporting into the NICS database and ensuring that we are prosecuting criminals in possession of or trying to possess firearms. This conversation should be about what is in people's minds, not about what is in their hands. I commend Senators Manchin and Toomey for working so hard to bring a serious bill to the floor. However, in its current form I do not see a path for my support. I've thought long and hard about this, I've taken the tough meetings, and I've heard overwhelmingly from the people of North Dakota; and at the end of the day my duty is to listen to and represent the people of North Dakota."
