Ayotte is scared of NRA when she should be scared of NH voters

To the editor,
Kelly Ayotte's position on the background checks, as stated to the daughter of the Sandy Hook principal, shows her lack of understanding of the purpose of the checks. She said thousands were prevented from buying guns because of the limited ones now in effect. She then went on to say that only a handful had been prosecuted. As I understand the purpose, it is to keep bad characters from buying these guns. Expanding the checks, as the bill proposes, would expand them to gun shows and other venues.
She is scared of the NRA, which is crowing about their victory. Let her know that she should be scared of the voters in N.H. instead. She does not represent the majority of us.
