Letter: Guns and money
Concerning Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s posture on gun control legislation: I think we are overlooking the big picture that the National Rifle Association is heavily supported monetarily by gun manufacturers. Last election almost $45 million was given in support of Republican candidates. That is why the GOP supports the NRA. In order to get this kind of support, they must vote as one. From there, we get our trickle-down support.
Back to Ayotte: Which would you rather have, a small portion of NRA money or voter support? You cannot buy my vote. Ironically, you as our former attorney general, of all people, should support efforts to keep guns out of hands of bad guys.
Then, of course, we have local police clubs raffling off guns to raise money – guns supplied by New Hampshire gun manufacturers. Shame on you.
