Letter: Our senators should be united

Wouldn’t it be great if our two senators decided to lead the way to change our current political paralysis by holding a joint press conference announcing their support of, say, background checks for purchasers of guns at gun shows?

This would have great weight, coming from senators of a state with a strong gun culture, and would show the country that political funding from the NRA does not trump common sense and political courage.
