Ms. Ayotte said Thursday that she would continue talking with Ms. Gillibrand and was confident that some areas of agreement, on areas like expanding mental health care, could be reached.

“There’s a lot we have agreement on in terms of enforcing our current system,” she said. “And so I certainly think we should look for the common elements, including the mental health piece, which I support as well, and try to move as much of that as possible forward.”

That's what the NRA wanted. I'll be shocked if the civil libertarians on the left vote to violate the civil rights of diagnosed, serious nut jobs. The usual excuse is that would cause nuts not to seek help.

Ms. Ayotte — the only one out of 22 senators on the East Coast north of Virginia who voted against strengthening background checks — has been the target lately of some of the most furious lobbying by gun control proponents, who have inundated local newspapers with letters to the editor denouncing her vote, run radio ads saying she “ignored the will of the people” and swamped her office with phone calls. On Thursday, two receptionists placed one call after another on hold as they politely listened to callers vent and replied, “Thank you for your message.”

BANG! Does anybody have a ping list for your state besides the rather modest one that I have? I want to ping that person for stories like this.

My retort is: why can’t we do this for voters too?

Why can’t we verify who is legally allowed to vote, and for whom did they vote. End the Australian Ballot.

Make our votes public record.

Ouderkirk voted against the school budget, voted against Schumer, Cuomo etc.
