Ayotte working to keep us safe

To the Editor:

As a mom, I am proud of the work Kelly Ayotte is doing to keep us safe. With the attack in Orlando, I worry for the safety of my own family and what kind of country our kids will inherit. But I am comforted by the fact that Kelly is working on solutions that will confront the terrorist threat – including a bipartisan push to prevent them from buying guns in the U.S. She knows that this is not a political issue nor an issue that has an easy answer. This is an issue of safety and security that takes a bipartisan approach to solve.

Her approach of reaching across the aisle to strike a bipartisan compromise is admirable and more Senators should follow her lead. Thank you, Kelly Ayotte for all of the work you do to keep us safe.
