Letter: Ayotte is wrong
The position taken by Sen. Kelly Ayotte against constraints on the types and means of weaponry sales is wrong! The gun industry has to be part of the solution to gun violence. Regulating the industry by banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and requiring universal background checks does not conflict with the Second Amendment. We regulate lots of constitutional rights through our laws. Free speech, for instance, is regulated by libel laws. The need to regulate weapon sales is obvious to anyone who reads the news today.
