The proof is in the pudding when it comes to gun control bills

To the editor,
In some of the 'Letters to the Editor' written recently in The Daily Sun, writers seem to be suffering from the following:
1. Hyperbole — obvious and intentional exaggeration,
2. Overstatements,
3. Going well beyond the pale to excess,
4. Blatant ignorance,
Just to name a few. The misleading and purposeful outright lies are truly amazing (and not in a good way). How very sad that those individuals have nothing better to do than twist and turn, contort, and distort the truth of the gun control bills recently proposed in the Senate.
Manchin (D) and Toomey (R) are among the mature, clear thinking individuals in the Senate. We should be thanking them for coming together for the common good.
As the ole saying goes, "the proof is in the pudding". Those who supported those gun control bills have gained favor and those who voted against have lost many points of popularity in the polls. Case in point Senator Kelley Ayotte. Her poll numbers have dropped like a rock.
