About Dean HellerRead Press Release
Even after the Las Vegas massacre last October, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, Dean Heller offered condolences, but no solutions, to the families of gun violence victims. This comes as no surprise, given the fact that he received campaign contributions and an A from the NRA. In 2013, Heller also thwarted a bipartisan gun safety bill by voting against an assault weapons ban, a limit on magazine capacity, and an amendment to expand background checks for gun sales. Fortunately, Senator Heller’s silence on these issues betrays his extreme precariousness in this year’s midterm election—he is widely touted as the Senate’s most vulnerable Republican.
