Reading Thursday’s front-page story, “Ayotte helps kill guns bill,” made me disgusted not only with her spineless vote but especially with the spineless U.S. Congress. Are they not supposed to represent the will of the American people?
The Senate rejected a basic, common-sense background check law for gun sales despite the fact that 90 percent of Americans and 91 percent of New Hampshire adults support it. Even 74 percent of NRA members support it!
This vote was based on pure political pressure from special interest groups like the NRA. Congress has been a failure. We need to take our country back from the fat cat lobbyists who run our country.
Until we take the money out of politics, it will be business as usual. Disgusting!
