Fairfax, VA – -( Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) said on Thursday that she will oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Heitkamp’s decision comes less than a day after the FBI wrapped up its investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, today released the following statement in response to Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s decision to vote against the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee:

“Today, Heidi Heitkamp put partisan politics above the rights of law-abiding North Dakota gun owners. Right now, the U.S. Supreme Court is split 4-4 on the basic right to keep a firearm in the home for self-defense. Therefore, a vote against confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a vote against the fundamental right to self-defense.”

Editors Note: Senator Heidi Heitkamp is up for reelection in November vote accordingly.

The democrats will attack the polls with FRAUD. They are known for their FRAUD and after failing on Judge Kavanuagh they will be out in full force. Those states that commit the most voter fraud have democrat or weak government leaders that do not support a legal election. The states are not limited to WASHINGTON STATE, CALIFORNIA, OREGON, New MEXICO. COLORADO, ILLINOIS, OHIO, FLORIDA, PENNSYLVANIA, NORTH CAROLINA, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, CONNECTICUT and many many others. Make sure to get our voters out to shut down the DNC Fraud Detail paid for by SOROS, BLOOMBERG and others.

So what’s the story here? She is a Democrap, does anyone actually think she is an American supporter?

Stupid voters who only pay attention every four years, hear about a RINO who needs to be voted out and decide to not vote at all or punish the whole Republican Party. Vote for te good Republicans, vote against the bad Republicans in the Primary. In a General Election vote for Republicans because nationally the party with a 1 vote majority controls the committee assignments, even the parking spaces. The DNC runs like the MAFI, they have enforcers to control every vote. The GOP is more like a snadlot team, party unity is just a concept that hasn’t been developed.… Read more »

NRA needs to produce a video showing its beginning. It could start with a scene of a Civil war battle, showing Union soldiers shots going wild. Then the scene from “The Fighting 69th” where Alabama soldiesrs boasting about outshooting the New Yorkers and Father Duffy agreeing.
Next a scene of veterans forming the NRA to improve the poor marksmanship of big city soldiers. Then,of course, getting Congress to establish the Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and appointing a Director of Civiian Mrksmanship
Menstion that many law enforcement and military instructors were NRA trained.

WV’s Manchin spells his name “Survivor.” Should he not vote to confirm, he’d be certainly be toast, instead of hopefully.
Shooting a gun for a tv ad doesn’t make him pro-2A.

Duaine, you are quite correct. I remember that Boom Boom showed us his expertise with a shotgun.


When you think about it a bit, Manchin is what Democrats USED-TO-BE like…… and he is about the LAST of the Old Democrats…… today’s Democrats are Far LEFT Socialists…..


Manchin is a fence jumper. He is for whatever saves his own butt. Why didn’t he fight the kinyon on the coal issue, because he needed to be loyal to the democrats.


Zackley, he goes and says what is REQUIRED to survive and keep his life style.

Not replacing him with our current Governor. He took away our rights and did nothing to fix the problems with Parkland


We’re planning on retiring Bill Nelson, too.


vote out or recall all anti-2a “things”

Heidi Heitkamp ; Commiecrat of North Dakota is history on the Wednesday following the election this November.


That’s IF enough conservatives get off their butts and vote instead of “leaving-it-to-the-next-guy” attitude. Hopefully this attack on Kavanah has put a fire under their butts to DO EXACTLY that.
