Letter: Illogical vote
Sen. Kelly Ayotte voted against universal background checks for gun purchases. She claims instead that measures addressing such things as “mental health gaps in the criminal justice system” will do a better job protecting Americans from gun violence. But I don’t get it: What good will filling in “mental health gaps” do if there is no requirement to undertake a background check that might undercover the now-gapless information? Information does little good if no one is looking for it.
