Heitkamp Defends Gun Control Voter:

FARGO,ND (KFGO NEWS) -- Senator Heidi Heitkamp is defending her vote against a gun control bill that would have expanded the use of background checks.

Heitkamp was in downtown Fargo as part of a statewide listening tour for veterans issues--just a block away from where former representative Gabby Giffords' rally was being held.

Giffords was in North Dakota to promote expanded background checks for gun purchases

Heitkamp says a just released Justice Department report shows one percent of all guns used in gun crimes, come from a gun show.

She says that's not where the problem is.

Heitkamp was one of four democrats to vote against the amendment, and the only one not facing re-election in 2014.
