Ayotte’s colleagues should follow her lead

To the Editor:

Republicans and Democrats don’t agree on much. This is why it is so important that we have leaders like Kelly Ayotte in the Senate to bring people together to find solutions.

I have been very impressed by Kelly Ayotte’s response to the attacks in Orlando. Her initial reaction was to seek bipartisan support for making sure terrorists can’t buy guns. Republicans and Democrats have tried making this a partisan issue, which would mean that nothing would get resolved. Meanwhile, Kelly Ayotte knows that this requires working across the aisle, and that is exactly what she has been doing.

I hope more of Kelly Ayotte’s colleagues in the Senate follow her lead in keeping our country safe.
