Collin Peterson only Democrat to vote against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act

The House passed legislation on Thursday reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) over objections from the National Rifle Association and Republicans who say it will restrict gun rights by preventing people convicted of stalking or abusing dating partners from buying a gun.

Thirty-three Republicans opted to break party lines and vote for the bill backed by Reps. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), the only GOP lawmaker to co-sponsor it.

Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) was the sole Democrat to vote against the measure, which passed 263-158.

“I was disappointed that the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Reauthorization was made partisan with the inclusion of language that would strip individuals’ right to due process with respect to their 2nd Amendment rights," Peterson said in a statement to The Hill.

2. To be fair, if he wasn't in the pocket of the NRA, we'd have a Republican in that district.

Lots of sugar beet growers too.

He's a lousy Dem, but better than a Repub. Barely.

5. Colllin is still stuck with his

 

Guns Gays and Abortion . Know his District quite well,do understand his preferences to stay in Office with his big three talking points.

Sad to say,this will change as the Farmers transition to Tenant Farmers,which is happening in real time and opion's change.

Understand the House Speaker gave him a Chairmanship. And she runs the show,and old Collin will be forced to go along or bye bye.
