I thank Sen. Ayotte for her vote & urge her to keep fighting

  • Published in Letters
To the editor,
To all those writers spending their time and energy attacking Sen. Ayotte for her recent vote against the purely political and emotionally inspired gun control law, save your time and breath. The billionaire mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg is doing it for you with millions of his dollars spent on TV adds trying to discredit her. He also spent an unknown amount of his bucks to send out-of-state rabble-rousers to the recent Warren and Tilton, N.H. town meetings, complete with signs and an agenda to disrupt these meetings. Do you really want that blowhard trying to operate in New Hampshire?
Just Google "Bloomberg security" and you will find all kinds of articles on this hypocrite's security detail. He even gets special dispensation to travel to Bermuda with his heavily armed force of NYPD officers. The local cops there don't even feel the need to be armed. Like most of our large cities, NYC is a haven for gangs and murderers. I say, let him prove that all of their long-standing gun control laws make one iota of difference in the safety of his average citizens.
I don't have to make this stuff up. Again Google "firstread.nbcnews.com Ayotte" and you will get the facts straight from an NBC reporter, Kassie Hunt. Also when checking his security, read a few of his misuses of what he refers to as "his private army". Apparently they even have tanks and anti-aircraft guns — anti-aircraft guns? Even I find that hard to believe. Doesn't sound like a city bleeding red ink really needs a standing army.
I'm sure that this letter wont make any difference in the opinions of those fixated on more and more government control, whether it be for guns, education or other areas. As for me, I truly thank Senator Ayotte for that vote and wish her well in the continuing battle against the DC gang in power in their attempt to turn us into a flock of sheep begging for directions to the trough.
