Letter: Ayotte takes the lead
Despite the outcries of most on the left, Sen. Kelly Ayotte has taken a true leadership position on the issue of mass violence in our country. Rather than infringing on the rights of responsible gun owners, Ayotte has recognized the real problem: our inadequate mental health system.
By co-sponsoring multiple pieces of legislation that seek to improve our country’s broken mental health system, Ayotte is addressing the issues raised by senseless tragedies like Newtown and Aurora.
To prevent something terrible like this from happening again, we need to make sure we help the mentally ill get the treatment they need. We are fortunate that Ayotte is taking a lead on this important issue.
