Dean Heller, Republican Senator from Nevada, has said he’s unlikely to support any ban on private transactions by gun owners under any circumstances.
â€œWhat weâ€™re doing is criminalizing any private transaction by gun owners,â€ Heller said. â€œâ€¦If we can get the onus off the law abiding citizens and make it a responsibility of those who have committed felons or adjudicated mental health issues, then Iâ€™m open for discussion, but not until then.â€
I’d agree with the author of the post that it would seem Manchin is barking up the wrong tree in trying to influence Heller’s vote. They need to switch six Senators to get to 60.
