Letter: Why pick on Ayotte?

I have to wonder why Sen. Kelly Ayotte is getting so much criticism, mostly from Democrats like former congresswoman Gabby Giffords, about her vote on background checks for gun purchases. Why pick on Ayotte when so many Democrats also voted against this unwise and ineffective bill?

Like so many of our laws, this one was designed to make us all feel good while accomplishing nothing. Does anyone think that a government that can’t manage a terrorist list can manage a monstrosity like this one would be, and does anyone believe that criminals will purchase guns from reputable dealers who will comply with the law? They are criminals. They buy them on the street or steal them.

There were 5 Democrats who voted against the bill, not "many". And none of those Democrats represent NH citizens. That is why.
