Letter: Ayotte’s Vote on Gun Checks

To the Editor:

I wonder if U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte knew when she voted against expanded background checks for gun purchases that states requiring them for handguns have fewer women shot by their intimate partners and that 33 citizens in the U.S. are murdered with guns every day.

Another troubling thing about her vote against expanded background checks is the fact that she seems to believe a vote against gun safety makes her electable in New Hampshire. Let us hope she has miscalculated!
