Letter: Wake up, Senator Ayotte
I heard Sen. Kelly Ayotte on NHPR, speaking in a lecturing voice, expressing her out-of-touch belief that an out-of-state entity (Gabrielle Giffords’s gun-control effort) “can’t tell New Hampshire voters how to think.”
This is Ayotte’s reaction to a TV ad, sponsored by the former congresswoman, the victim of a high-powered gun assault.
Sen. Ayotte, wake up. Or, Sen. Ayotte, be honest.
Ninety percent of Americans want gun controls, especially those that reduce the number of bullets in a magazine. No one needs to tell New Hampshire voters how to think on this. We get the picture: mowing down people with machine-gun like rapidity is an insane capacity. Let us never forget the Newtown child victims. Only someone in the pocket of the National Rifle Association would cast her vote otherwise. You should be ashamed, Ms. Ayotte, very, very ashamed.
