WASHINGTON (AP) - A gun control group is targeting Sen. Heidi Heitkamp with print ads after the North Dakota Democrat spoke critically about gun restrictions being considered by the Obama Administration.
The ads from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence invoke recent mass shootings including Newtown, Conn. They are running in two Washington newspapers on Tuesday and will appear in the Fargo Forum and Bismarck Tribune on Wednesday, and draw attention to critical remarks Heitkamp made about new gun restrictions on ABC's ``This Week'' on Sunday.
In a statement, Heitkamp spokeswoman Whitney Philips says Heitkamp believes any solution to mass shootings must go beyond focusing solely on gun laws and include other issues. Philips says Heitkamp believes ``all options must be on the table'' when it comes to addressing gun violence.
