Letter: Ayotte is no rubber stamp

The political battle surrounding the Second Amendment continues. This is why we need people such as Sen. Kelly Ayotte in Washington to defend our Bill of Rights and to resist the convenient reinterpretations of our Constitution as offered by the likes of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” gang wants all guns to become illegal. They have support from those disingenuous crafters of gun-hate legislation, Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Charles Schumer of New York. These gun-haters support useless and ineffectual legislation as proven by the assault weapon ban passed by the Clinton administration. That ban made no difference in the crime rate or our general safety.

Bloomberg thinks he can buy enough votes to help elect a whole bunch of rubber-stamp liberal Democrats in 2014 to repeat that gross error.

Ayotte is not a rubber stamp. She is an intelligent, stalwart, determined person whose service as New Hampshire attorney general proves she understands our Constitution and adheres to her oath to support and defend that great law of our land.
